The quiet village of Swevenings seemed an English pastoral paradise, until the savagely beaten body of a lord was found near a tranquil stream. Suddenly, the playground of British bluebloods has been soiled by murder and the lowest sort of intrigue. But if anyone can clean it up, it's the famous Inspector Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard.More

Excellent Plot with a sad secondary plot
I will listen to this book repeatedly. The narration is terrific and the story unfolds sensibly without ever giving anything away too quickly.
The pun on 'scales of justice' as the story progresses is just great.
This book is thought-provoking, because of a secondary plot involving treason and suicide, loyalty and forebearance. I admire the actions of the characters and wonder if I could be as honourable.
Excellent, but with minor editing glitches
