'Funny and clever, this is the next Devil Wears Prada' Paige Toon Behind every successful man is a busy assistant and Tina's boss is very successful. But Tina is tired of being overworked and underpaid. She's bored of her damp flat and her mounting debts. Then a blip in the expenses system sends Tina a cheque. She's a good person. But she's desperate. This isn't stealing. It's an administrative error. Right? What would you do if you thought you'd get away with it?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Witty tale about an embezzlement gone awry - we loved it ****" * Heat *
"Perri's writing pulsates with wise-cracks and smart pop culture references, as Tina and her assistant friends navigate one massive moral dilemma and ponder their futures. If you've ever been an overworked assistant (who hasn't?), you'll adore this." * Glamour *
"Maybe the fact that Perri once worked as an assistant herself is what gives this well-written debut its lick of veracity. It's a different, witty, funny and pacy read - and I thoroughly enjoyed it." * Daily Mail *
"The Assistants is fresh, smart and very funny - I absolutely loved it." -- Lucy Diamond
"The Assistants is a must-read for anyone who's toiled away for an unappreciative boss . . . Sharp, sassy and lots of fun." * Red *
"Funny and clever, this is the next Devil Wears Prada" -- Paige Toon
"Anyone who's earned less in a year than their boss spends on cabs will relate." * Glamour *
"Sure to be a massive hit" * Media Eye *

“A Katherine Heigl movie waiting to happen!”

This book was so much fun to read! I was laughing out loud, gasping at twists, and crossing my fingers that they were, maybe, possibly, surely not, going to get away with it. This is a book about office politics, how... More

The Assistants is a lighthearted, easy read that is fun and delightful; full of pop culture references and plenty of belly laughs. It's not all sweetness and light, though. When our girl Robin Hood, Tina... More
