Publisher's Summary

An Adam Dalgliesh Mystery.

From P.D. James, one of the masters of British crime fiction, comes the seventh Adam Dalgliesh novel, set against the bleak fens of East Anglia.

Death of An Expert Witness is a classic work of detective fiction packed with forensic detail, intrigue and suspense.

When a young girl is found murdered in a field, the scientific examination of the exhibits is just a routine job for the staff of Hoggatt's forensic science laboratory. But nothing could have prepared them for the brutal death of one of their own.

When the senior biologist is found dead in his laboratory Commander Dalgliesh is called to the bleak fens of East Anglia, where the murderer is lying in wait to strike again. With a wealth of potential suspects and cautious forensic scientists quick to pass on the blame, Dalgliesh becomes embroiled in the complicated passions that lie hidden beneath the calm surface of the laboratory.

From PD James, the bestselling author of Death Comes To Pemberley, Children of Men, and Death in Holy Orders, comes an atmospheric and thrilling work of detective fiction set in a forensic laboratory on the bleak fens of East Anglia.

This novel was adapted into an ITV television series in 1983 and starred Roy Marsden, Geoffrey Palmer, and Ray Brooks.

What the Critics Say

"P. D. James is one of the national treasures of British fiction... Each new book gives pleasure not just for macabre crimes or ingenious solutions but its density of experience." (Malcolm Bradbury, Mail on Sunday)
