Listening to SCALES OF JUSTICE is like taking a trip back to mid-twentieth-century rural England. The classes know their place, eccentricities abound, the district nurse is named Kettle, and the story has a featured cat. No accent, implication, or physical description escapes narrator Peter Wickham’s sparkling presentation. When one of the local villagers is murdered, everyone is suspect. The indomitable Roderic Alleyn and his sidekick, Fox, wade through clues and fish scales (note the title) to find the culprit. The best part is an endearing romance that's totally unexpected. The vintage style of story and presentation make this a perfect audiobook. Like the works of Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle, Marsh's classic mysteries will live forever.
