Of all the books in the Inspector Alleyn series, Scales of Justice is perhaps the most powerfully reminiscent of Agatha Christie with its setting in a small, charming English village and its cast of aristochrats. When one of the aristos turns up dead next to the local trout stream, Alleyn must clear things up.

Ngaio Marsh brings the 1950's English countryside to life in this funny and clever murder mystery. The picturesque town of Swevenings has its full share of privileged upper-class personalities, but also some likable "commoners". The murder itself is solved by Inspector Alleyn with the help of a cat and a couple of trout.

Personally, I find Marsh's books very similar to Agatha Christie's - but with a bit more complexity, insight, and humor. You'll enjoy this book if you like a well-written, cozy murder mystery.
