Patti Abbott took the online fiction world by storm with her tales of the fallen, broken and redeemed. At the same she raises my blood pressure, I also get emotionally hooked. I'm so glad to see her in a collection. We love you, Patti.

I'm going to start with the blurb I provided for Monkey Justice:

"There are few writers who have been more instrumental in my development as a short story writer as Patti Abbott. Her dark, explosive, and yet intensely humane stories leave me breathless and Monkey Justice is nothing less than brilliant"

Typically I'm fairly shy about giving Amazon reviews, but Monkey Justice is a truly an amazing collection from a prolific, immensely talented author who deserves to be recognized as one of the best short story writers to emerge in the past decade.

Buy this collection, you will not be disappointed!

It can be frustrating following an author who specializes in short fiction, many stories slip through the cracks.

I first came across Patti Abbott's short stories in 2006. With the first one I read, I was hooked. I quickly scoured the internet, searching for her work. And since then, I've read every new piece she's had published.

But some slipped through the cracks.

That's why, for me, this wonderful collection is a revelation. Twenty-three of Patti Abbott's short stories, all in one place.

Whether you're like me, looking for the one's you missed, or you're discovering Patti for the first time, you're in for a treat. This is a wonderful book full of humanity and humor.

Plus, it's called MONKEY JUSTICE. That makes it extra cool.

Highly recommended!

This one was a bit difficult to categorize, and I think that's a good thing. I might call it "literary noir." There's plenty of violence and intensity, but many of the stories are open ended in an almost literary style, and character is clearly paramount with the author. I found myself savoring these tales rather than tearing through them. They're different. Each is a little gem, carefully constructed. I highly recommend them.

The secret of Patti Abbott's success as a short story writer is the humanity that she infuses into her characters. Whether it's a hero or twisted killer, these characters are deeply conflicted facing difficult situations that make us wonder how the hell they are going to get out of it. Patti knows but she will keep the reader guessing through all the twists and turns she's constructed along the way. A supremely talented writer at the top of her game.

Patti Abbott is one of the best short story writers today. She captures the darkness in the human condition and brings it to the forefront. Her stories are seldom pretty, yet there is real beauty in her writing. Hard core yet told with a lot of heart. Her characters are real. Sometimes real nasty. And the stories are always interesting, entertaining and a pleasure to read. Noir for the new millennium. Highly recommended.

Patti Abbott has been a tremendous and tireless supporter of crime fiction for many years through her blog and in encouraging other writers. But Patti is also an amazing wordsmith in her own right, creating a variety of tightly-woven short-story gems that delve into the darkness of the soul in ways that are engrossing, compelling and will leave you thinking about them long after you've finished reading. Kudos to Snubnose Press for making this collection available.

I've known Patti Abbott for a number of years as a fellow fan of classic flim noir and crime fiction. She's a tireless promoter with her weblogs for other authors as well as her own postings. Her short fiction has graced many prestigious ezines and anthologies, 23 stories of which are assembled in MONKEY JUSTICE AND OTHER STORIES. I've been reading them, and there's so much I admire here. Foremost, "Catnap" is a devastating noirish tale about a baby snatcher named Melissa, a young, conniving lady who doesn't have a clue about herself or the world. Young Louellen in "Escapes" does figure a way out of northern Indiana's desolation. The title story brims with biting irony, first suggested by its title. Bernie and Marsha in "Like a Hawk Rising" deal with a knee-breaker named Buzzy coming around for delinquent payments. However, all isn't grim and bleak here. "Re: University Protocol on Incidents of Student Plagiarizing" and "My Hero" both offer their lighter moments. This excellent collection should satisfy all fans of noir and crime fiction.
