Publisher's Summary

The lives of the inhabitants of Swevenings are disrupted only by a fierce competition to catch the Old Un, a monster trout known to dwell in a beautiful stream which winds past their homes.
Then one of their small community is found brutally murdered; beside him is the freshly killed trout. Both died by violence - but Chief Detective Inspector Roderick Alleyn's murder investigation seems to be much more interested in the fish....
Scales of Justice was first published in 1955.

Delightful fish story

Another tightly woven tale with an array of characters whose relationships are initially impossible to comprehend. But of course Chief Inspector Alleyne understands everything almost instantly once he arrives on the scene and again Marsh compresses time such that Alleyne miraculously solves a crime almost overnight. This does not diminish the pleasure of solving it with him. Amazing that Marsh wrote these tales over so many decades and maintained her gift for it.
