#Review: Take The Monkeys and Run by Karen Cantwell

Brisk, bright, lively and fun. 

How do you get from laughing at escaped monkeys frolicking in your trees to three neighborhood soccer moms being kidnapped by the mob? Barbara Marr finds herself wondering the same thing and asking herself 'Would Al Pacino be caught dead in this movie?'

You'll love this laugh-out-loud suspense novel. Barbara Marr is the perfect protagonist from the suburbs. There's nothing more important than her daughters, her home and her marriage even if her husband can't see that for himself even if she has to channel Lt. Ripley of Alien fame to get through the action-adventure of a lifetime.

About the Author

Like her character, Barbara Marr, Karen Cantwell is a mother living in the suburbs.  She has never, however, found monkeys in her trees (at least not literally) or a severed human head in her neighbor's basement, and for this she is very thankful.  She would not approach the events with nearly as much chutzpah.  She is currently conjuring a second Barbara Marr novel, Citizen Insane, which she hopes to release soon, and will then begin work on the third, Silenced by the Yams.  Karen loves to hear from readers.  You can find her email address on the website,
