Overview

Of all the books in the Alleyn series, Scales of Justice is most powerfully reminiscent of Agatha Christie, with its setting in an almost unspeakably charming little English village, and its cast of inbred aristocrats. When one of the aristos turns up dead next to the local trout-stream—with a trout at his side—everyone is dreadfully upset, but really, just a tad irritated as well: Murder is so awfully messy. Thank gawd that nice Inspector Alleyn is on hand to clear things up.

With a Marsh mystery. Always a good English or New Zealand cozy, country house mystery with enough twists and turns to keep you happy. Along the lines of Nero Wolf - intellectual not silly. Reoccurring characters are like old friends. Wish there were more. Newer cozy mysteries have become lowest common denominator drivel. Pity.

Hard to believe, fish scales are an important clue in this amusing mystery

I first read this any years ago and was delighted to be able to do renew my acquaintance with one of the best Marsh has written!
