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.

Author

C.S. Boag

The first indication that Charles Boag might have a career in fiction came in 1967 when a short story he wrote, “Aunt Maud” – a macabre tale of incest and madness – was placed third in a Sydney University competition and appeared in the university newspaper, “Honi Soit”. But since then, as he put it, “life got in the way” and he concentrated on journalism – general reporting for “The Sydney Morning Herald”, feature-writing with “The Bulletin” magazine, a couple of columns (for “Woman’s Day” and “The Bulletin”), newspaper editor (Blacktown and Parramatta Suns), and authoring a “History of Arnott’s”.
