My first review – by William Yeoman, books editor for The West Australian

“Being an Anglophile, I immediately empathised with the heroine of Perry-Strickland’s debut novel, Sally Boleyn, who as she flies into Perth wonders whether she could ‘commandeer the aircraft and force a return to London’. Then she starts working for Ruby at The Magpie’s Nest costume shop and suddenly life’s a cabaret. A mystery in six acts taking in many of Perth’s olde-worlde delights such as His Majesty’s Theatre, The Magpie’s Nest is written in snappy, sassy prose and a delight from start to finish.”
