Set on the bleak fens of East Anglia, Death of an Expert Witness is the seventh novel in the Adam Dalgliesh series and a thrilling work of detective fiction from P.D. James, the bestselling author of Death Comes To Pemberley and Children of Men.

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.
