What readers say about Cuddies Strip

“How much I enjoyed this book. Feelings of frustration and anger went alongside thoughts of how far women in society have progressed, combined with how much further there is to go! So, it led to some stimulation for the grey matter, as well as being a page-turner. Thanks so much Rob, you should be proud.” 

“What a page turner, I enjoyed every minute of it. I can't wait to read the sequel!” 

“A wonderful and harrowing account of the true crimes committed in Perth in the 1930s - hard to believe it actually happened!”
