Mister Rainbow Vol 1

Author(s): C. S. Boag

Fiction - Crime & Thriller

The two volumes in the Mister Rainbow collection, of which this is the first, bring together the seven sensational stories in this acclaimed detective series - 21st century cases with a wink and a nod to the golden age of pulp fiction spearheaded by Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. With their memorable characters, witty dialogue and fast-paced plots, the Rainbow series announces the arrival of an arresting new Australian talent. Volume 1 contains The Hood with No Hands, The Death of a Ladies' Man and Horses for Corpses.

Praise for the Mister Rainbow series

'The Mister Rainbow series, in all its glory, is a real little gem.' Karen Chisholm, The Newtown Review of Books

'Mister Rainbow is that rare creature - a PI with depth. Down at heel, shabby, inept - he's a born loser, at his best when the odds are stacked against him. Somehow, in a taut contest, he wins.' Barry Oakley, novelist and former literary editor of The Australian

'The Case of the Cock Robin Killer [the fifth in the series] is a fun and fast-paced read, with lots of twists and turns that will keep you chuckling and wondering who or what will happen next. A cross between classic film noir, Sin City, and John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces, the story is an absolute riot.' Red City Review
