This book is a mix of science fiction, action thriller, and mystery novel rolled into one. The protagonist is a lady who has lived a life without purpose for many years and finally finds herself living for a purpose but not happy about the choices.

From rough child hood to the life of a killer disposing of Bad Monkeys, our heroine struggles with family, job, and the enemies from both.

This book will keep you captivated through out. Though the story is told as if being told in the past, it has a feel of immediacy to it. Even knowing part of what happens doesn't diminish the tension at key points.

The gadgets are interesting but really a side bit to the overall plot. Things aren't quite what they seem either, and you'll be guessing until the end.

I recommend if you like a bit of scifi in your thriller, and don't mind a bit of wackiness that you pick this paperback up and enjoy.
