   Old Scores

Book Review - Old Scores (Fremantle Press)

Set in Perth during the 1980’s Old Scores, the third novel in the Frank Swann detective series, is a book with a heartbeat. The text pulses from the pages at an escalating rate, building tension and suspense as the story hurtles towards its surprising resolution. Frank Swann’s Perth is a city steeped in corruption at every level, from bikie clubhouses to the houses of parliament, and a complex web of relationships involving politicians, police, businessmen and bankers must be artfully navigated if Swann is to save himself and protect others he cares about. Old Scores confirms Whish-Wilson as a master crime writer with an unrivalled gift for examining and depicting the culture of the 'wild west'.
