Old Scores - first media, first reviews and launch

We'll be launching Old Scores down at The Buffalo Club @ 54 High Street, Fremantle, on Wednesday November 16. Freo MP Josh Wilson will be doing the honours.


The first radio interview, with 6PR's drivetime host and crime writer Adam Shand, can be found here - https://audioboom.com/posts/5244430-david-whish-wilson-041116


You'll find the full list of reviews on the Reviews page, but here is a taste of some of the early ones:

  • "As is the case with the first two instalments, Old Score combines a fast moving, tension filled crime tale with acute social and political observations and stunning prose and characterisations. Old Scores not only confirms Whish-Wilson’s as the master chronicler of Western Australia’s noir underbelly, but one of the best crime writers working in Australia today." Andrew Nette, Crime Factory & Pulpcurry - http://www.pulpcurry.com/2016/11/book-review-old-scores/

  • "No one writes West Australian crime fiction like David Whish-Wilson. Old Scores once again transports the reader back in time, this time to the 1980's at the beginning of the urban boom."Old Score envelopes the reader into not only a time and place, but puts them firmly in the mind off the characters. Old Scores is a must read for fans of Australian crime fiction and/or crime fiction in general." Justaguythatlikestoread/Fairdinkum Crime - http://justaguythatlikes2read.blogspot.com.au/
  • "Featuring a strong cast of murderous bikies and corrupt detectives, greedy landlords and one of Australia’s most wanted men, Old Scores is another full-throttle romp through the mean streets of Perth from the author of Line of Sight and Zero at the Bone. In the Frank Swann series, David Whish-Wilson has done for Perth what Peter Temple did for Melbourne with Jack Irish. It might be a tough city but it’s our tough city..."
