You think your phones are bugged and people are out to get you. Everyone’s a suspect and violence is the answer to everything. Put bluntly, you’re a psychopath who might one day kill a loved one in mistake for the Devil. You describe your nemesis as ‘horribly scarred’ one minute and ‘beautiful’ the next. The reason for that discrepancy is simple Pandora doesn’t exist. So says the shrink. In what could be his last case, Rainbow has to prove Pandora or accept that he’s mad a psychopath capable of killing innocent people. In The Case of the Nightmare in Nimbin he returns to his roots the hippy enclave on the NSW North Coast. He revisits the usual suspects the women in his life any one of whom could be his nemesis. But at all times he’s acutely aware that the chief suspect is himself. The Case of the Nightmare in Nimbin, the seventh novel in the sensational Mister Rainbow series, is a modern story with a wink and a nod to the golden age of pulp fiction. With its memorable characters, witty dialogue and fast-paced plot, it signals the arrival of an arresting new Australian talent.Praise for Mister Rainbow: ‘Mister Rainbow in the Case of the Cock Robin Killer 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 ‘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 ‘Charles Boag’s delightful Mister Rainbow series is a must for lovers of the detective thriller, a setting which is familiar, and a clever use of language in developing both the plot and the characters. The hero’s name is as thought-provoking as is the style of writing itself: quirky and challenging, with an underlying sense of humour which is both dark and memorable. Each of the first three books in the series was hard to put down and leaves the reader anxious for the next.’ Belinda Kendall-White ‘Mister Rainbow is unique among private eyes. Impulsively he trips, darts and weaves through the obstacle course of Sydney’s gambling dens, turf clubs and high-flier casinos, while his own life implodes. Dark themes, yes. But C.S. Boag writes with such wit, humour and deftness, this book is enormous fun.’ Bernadette Williamson ‘Many of C.S. Boag’s sentences and phrases will make you laugh; although some will make you ponder. They are ingenious and very funny.’ Jacob A.J. Taylor
