'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. In the red corner he finds an unpredictable dame called Tsunami; a crooked cop; a tough-as-granite developer; a politician; a couple of thugs; a paparazzo; and too many bodies. While in the blue corner yeah, that s Rainbow s there s just two dames in distress and a bald journo. The clue is blue. But is that blue as in the moody blues, blue blood, a bad blue, a stoush or just plain old-fashioned blue murder? The Case of the Cock Robin Killer, the fifth 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.' (Publication summary)
