The release date for Old Scores, my new Frank Swann crime novel set in 1980s Perth is November 1, although the first review is in and quoted here:

“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’.”

The book is published by Fremantle Press and distributed by Penguin Australia, so it’ll be available in all good Australian and New Zealand bookshops. In Perth, I certainly recommend New Edition in Fremantle, Northside in Northbridge, Beaufort Street in Mt Lawley, Crow Books in Vic Park, Diabolik in Mt Hawthorn, Collins in Cott and Dymocks everywhere else. Online, the novel will be available in Australia from Booktopia here –…

For overseas readers the novel can be found at Amazon here –
