    1. James Mallahan Cain was an American journalist and novelist Although Cain himself vehemently opposed labelling, he is usually associated with the hardboiled school of American crime fiction and seen as one of the creators of the roman noir.He was born into an Irish Catholic family in Annapolis, Maryland, the son of a prominent educator and an opera singer He inherited his love for music from his mother, but his high hopes of starting a career as a singer himself were thwarted when she told him that his voice was not good enough After graduating from Washington College where his father, James W Cain served as president, in 1910, he began working as a journalist for the Balti Sun.He was drafted into the United States Army and spent the final year of World War I in France writing for an Army magazine On his return to the United States he continued working as a journalist, writing editorials for the New York World and articles for American Mercury He also served briefly as the managing editor of The New Yorker , but later turned to screenplays and finally to fiction.Although Cain spent many years in Hollywood working on screenplays, his name only appears on the credits of three films, Algiers , Stand Up and Fight , and Gypsy Wildcat.His first novel he had already published Our Government in 1930 , The Postman Always Rings Twice was published in 1934 Two years later the serialized, in Liberty Magazine , Double Indemnity was published.He made use of his love of music and of the opera in particular in at least three of his novels Serenade about an American opera singer who loses his voice and who, after spending part of his life south of the border, re enters the States illegally with a Mexican prostitute in tow , Mildred Pierce in which, as part of the subplot, the only daughter of a successful businesswoman trains as an opera singer and Career in C Major , a short semi comic novel about the unhappy husband of an aspiring opera singer who unexpectedly discovered that he has a better voice than she does.He continued writing up to his death at the age of 85, his last three published works, The Baby in the Icebox 1981 , Cloud Nine 1984 and The Enchanted Isle 1985 being published posthumously However, the many novels he published from the late 1940s onward never quite rivaled his earlier successes.

    2. A more modern Cain, written in the 70's once can see clearly that he was a born story teller and still has that spark that makes his characters come to life. We have the typical boy meets girl type of scenario in which a woman, a kidnapper and 100k fall from the skies and our hero, saves the woman and we wonder if she is what she appears to be. With a plot twist that Cain would never been able to include in his novels from the 30's this one burns with suspense and intrigue. As the characters won [...]

    3. Boring, rehashes some plot points from an earlier novel, "Butterfly", including a bootleg moonshine subplot and creepy incest overtones. Has a happier ending than his other works, but still not that memorable.

    4. I finished this book two weeks ago and have come back to add a star and to provide some comments. The characters include a quietly-savvy Hillbilly and a perky little airline stewardess (who literally drops out of the sky) along with a host of ill-intentioned relatives, untrusting local cops, and a corrupt lawyer. The story is told in first-person by Dave who meets Jill after she tags along when a hijacker named Shaw jumps from an airplane with a bag containing $100,000 in ransom money. I liked i [...]

    5. I'm surprised more pulp-heads haven't read this book. Currently standing at 21 review and only 2 ratings, this is truly a gem.Rainbow's End is a country themed pulp about Dave, a young man who lives in hillbilly world with this horny mother. Yes, bring out the banjos. One night a hijacking aboard of plane goes wrong. The hijacker jumps out of plane with a hostage and briefcase stuffed with cash. Unlucky for him, he's parachuted on Dave and Mom's property. Murder, jealousy, sex, and treachery ens [...]

    6. Was given to me but was a wrong 'Rainbow's End'. Read it anyway and, no -- can't say many good things about it.
