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!

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.

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.

I only bought this book because it was recommended by Dan O'Shea in his book Old School(which was an excellent read btw). So he was giving snaps and claps to oh Pattie is a wonderful artist with great stories, so I followed the line, awful move. I'm writing this and promise myself that I would not be a jerk about how awful it is. Almost every story, every story has the most obvious grammatical errors my five year old can see. Sentences are misused, misplaced unintelligible construction to the point is just rude. So after playing cryptogram you realize in the mangled mess there is a story that is as fresh as carrion. The basic construct of a story say it with me Pattie is a beginning, middle and an end! You take a gamble with each story and sometimes receive two out of three(never in order) and in four stories you only get the middle and she walks out of the story like she did something! There isn't one story that is complete or accomplished she had no bragging rights period, the material isn't fresh, exciting gritty or the promised look into the psychological makeup of society. Dan shame on you for promoting her as a colleague she had the writing skills that tell she is scattered brained. I really am upset about this. Dear reader I know you don't know me yet please heed the warning skip this book even if it's free, there should be a lollipop on the cover because you'll be a sucker if you buy this. I gave her one star because of the stories, I feel bad doing so because in all my reviews I've only given one star one other time, please don't leave me disparaging messages about how I'm not an editor blah, blah, blah no I'm not and I don't pretend to be one on tv either what I am is a consumer entitled to my opinion as you to yours. I won't lie nor put sugar on poo, and you've stepped in poo reading this.

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.

The other reviewers have said it better than I ever good.

The twenty-three stories in this collection are of ordinary people caught in all sorts of postions. How they deal with them sets Patti Abbott apart from other writers. She has her own style and these stories all read well, fast. I had a lot of fun reading this collection, usually two stories in the morning while drinking my coffee. They go together well.

I was familiar with some of these stories, others I'd missed. There's not a bad one in the lot.
