Look I don't know why these books appeal but they make me laugh!

From the Blurb:

Rainbow's got the blues. His girlfriend's dumped him; his assassin mate Rory's found God; his Aunt Rube's as sick as a bad joke; and his ex-wife's thrown up a barricade - all right, a cordon bleu - around his daughter Imogene.

So when a snake's let loose in a laboratory, his ballet teacher's under siege and a nasty little joker by the name of Cock Robin cops it, Rainbow climbs into the ring because it's his job - but also because he needs the distraction.

This was a re-read over the long weekend and a perfect way to fill in an afternoon in the sun.

For review at http://www.newtownreviewofbooks.com(link is external) this is the first of the Rainbow books

From the Blurb:

She's a surgeon, she's beautiful and she desperately wants Mister Rainbow to shed some light on her husband's past. But when he does, she wishes he hadn't. Because what Rainbow discovers is a handless hood - and a whole lot of murders.

Author
Body

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”.

I'm not sure if the author's bio is a hint to what is coming in this book, or the book is a hint about the author's bio. Either way I'm not quite 50% of the way in and already laughing. Which I hope is the right reaction...
