Crime Fiction Alphabet 2012 - X is for EXPERT WITNESS
I've decided that for the Crime Fiction Alphabet meme this year I will try to feature books I've read in 2012.
So this week the letter X was a real challenge and I've decided to feature DEATH OF AN EXPERT WITNESS by P.D. James, which I recently re-read as an audio book.
When a young girl is found strangled in a field, it looks like a routine job for the staff of the East Anglian Forensic Laboratory. But then the senior biologist is found dead in his lab and murder comes closer to home. And Commander Adam Dalgliesh faces the most baffling inquiry of his career.
DEATH OF AN EXPERT WITNESS is the perfect illustration of what took P.D. James to the top of British crime fiction. Characters are clearly defined, plotting is convoluted but tight, motives are hidden, and red herrings abound. More
Check what others have chosen in Crime Fiction Alphabet this week for the letter X.
