Plot outline

Scotland Yard’s Adam Dalgliesh investigates the murder of forensic biologist Dr Edwin Lorrimer With too many motives and no physical evidence, Dalgliesh is left to deduce which among the small pool of suspects is the killer, who decides to claim a second victim

Setting

The events take place in Hoggatt’s Laboratory East Anglia, which is near Cambridge

Notes

This is Adam Dalgliesh’s second case with John Massingham

Literary significance and criticism

A review in Catalogue of Crimer noted; "Despite praise by Julian Symons and others, there is less to admire in this book than in most others by this talented author For some reason the mixture of love and lust that brings about the death of a highly disagreeable pathologist fails to attract or convince The best thing about the book is that it brings back Supt Dalgliesh" In a 1977 book review, John Leonard of The New York Times wrote "In 'Death of an Expert Witness,' does for a forensic science laboratory in East Anglia what Sayers did for Oxbridge and Marsh managed for the London theater world She fairly wallows in motives technicalities, eccentricities, venom and defeat"

Adaptation

A television version was produced for Britain's ITV network in 1983 It starred Roy Marsden as Adam Dalgliesh, Barry Foster as Dr Howarth, Geoffrey Palmer as Dr Lorrimer, and Ray Brooks as Dr Kerrison
