It’s the early 1980s: the heady days of excess, dirty secrets and personal favours. Former Perth detective Frank Swann is still in disgrace, working as a low-rent private investigator. But when he’s offered a security job by the premier’s fixer, it soon becomes clear that someone is bugging the premier’s phone – and it may cost Swann more than his job to find out why.
Old Scores is a fast-paced, entertaining, and suspenseful must-read for fans of Australian crime fiction.
