Cuddies Strip by Rob McInroy
In August, 1935, two young sweethearts, Danny Kerrigan and Marjory Fenwick, walk home along the Cuddies Strip, a lover’s lane on the outskirts of Perth.
Suddenly, two shots ring out. Eighteen-year-old Danny slumps to the ground. Seventeen-year-old Marjory flees, but is chased, caught, and brutally assaulted.
What follows is an investigation which shook the quiet city of Perth.
The local rural police force treat Marjory with suspicion, subjecting her to humiliating medical and legal inquiries. The community shun and ignore her. Only two policemen believe and support Marjory – the old Inspector Victor Conoboy, and new young Constable Bob Kelty. Together, they conduct a dogged and determined investigation, navigating the weeds of ingrained prejudices and bias to pursue the offender and catch him before he strikes again.
Cuddies Strip vividly envisions the beautiful Perthshire countryside, the city itself as it was in the 1930’s, and the final dramatic denouement set in a grand Edinburgh court.

Barossa Street by Rob McInroy
Barossa Street follows Cuddies Strip protagonist, Bob Kelty, as he winds up in the throes of another gruesome murder case. Increasingly disenfranchised after the events within Cuddies Strip, Bob resigns from the Force. That is until he runs into an old friend with an urgent request. Kelty’s conscience and desire to seek justice gets the better of him. Along with his girlfriend Annie, he takes on the task of tracking down the real killer, and clearing the name of his old friend.
Set in Perth, Barossa Street offers not only a look at the mishandling of justice in the face of 1930’s prejudice, but also serves as a commentary of the British public’s response to the government’s shortcomings. Set with the backdrop of King Edward VIII’s abdication and the threat of war, Barossa Street intertwines a critique of the times with a thrilling murder mystery.
Have the police really got the wrong man? Or does Bob’s old friend have some skeletons in his closet?
