Summary

In 1890, the first Japanese diplomatic delegation arrives in London to open an embassy. Cyrus Barker, private enquiry agent and occasional agent for the Foreign Service Office, is enlisted to display his personal Japanese garden to the visiting dignitaries.
Later that night, Ambassador Toda is shot and killed in his office and Cyrus Barker is discovered across the street, watching the very same office, in possession of a revolver with one spent cartridge.
Arrested by the Special Branch for the crime, Barker is vigorously interrogated and finally released due to the intervention of his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, and his solicitor. With the London constabulary still convinced of his guilt, Barker is hired by the new Japanese ambassador to find the real murderer.
In a case that takes Barker and Llewelyn deep into parts of London's underworld, on paths that lead deep into Barker's own mysterious personal history, Old Scores is the finest yet in Will Thomas's critically acclaimed series.

Series regulars will like the background info

I would not recommend this book as a first read. Go back, start from the beginning, enjoy each book, then read this edition. All the characters from previous stories come into their own. Looking forward to the next one.

Wonderful!

I have loved and enjoyed all of the Llewelyn/Barker books and adore Antony Fergusons narration but I particularly enjoyed Old Scores. The insights in Oriental culture were fascinating. I highly recommend this entire series.
