Monkey Of Con City

The fifth entry in the Con City series has, like a golden eagle, landed!

A scientist tries to train a monkey to write Hamlet 2, exactly the way Shakespeare would have done. Will he succeed, or will his project be ruined by film producers, gun toting maniacs, and birds?


Professor van der Bishop, the most successful scientist at the University of Con City, has a theory that a monkey can be trained to write sequels to the plays of Shakespeare, exactly the way Shakespeare himself would have done, had he lived long enough. The Professor travels to England, where he teams up with a young English couple to acquire funding for his research from film producer Terrence Blunt, creator of the commercially successful but critically reviled Round Table movie franchise. When the Professor comes face to face with the cutthroat nature of the film industry, he must use every trick up his sleeve to secure his research funding. Even if that involves working for a film critic who may or may not be a psychopathic professional hitman.

Monkey Of Con City chronicles the absurd misadventures of a misunderstood genius from Con City, the most dangerous city in the Republic of North America, during his visit to the picturesque town of Hawthorneford, Con City's English sister town, where he tries to scientifically produce the manuscripts of Hamlet 2, Macbeth 2, and even Romeo and Juliet 2. His quest is hindered at every turn by the likes of a cinema cult and their megalomaniacal leader, local hooligans, one hundred and sixty-eight cats, an unhinged method actor, gun toting madmen, a chronic lack of monkeys, a very angry post office manager, and the most dangerous animals in the world: birds! Recommended for fans of the Con City series, readers who enjoy their crime fiction as absurd and filled with as much mayhem as possible, and anyone who believes that the Earth is not a giant watermelon.

Monkey Of Con City will be published on 31 October 2019 in Kindle ebook and paperback formats. You can pre-order the Kindle edition here.
