Death of an Expert Witness (Adam Dalgliesh Mystery Series #6)

Death Of An Expert Witness  - P.D. James Sixth Adam Dalgliesh novel. My month of reading the next novel in the series thing continues. I know I read this one many, many years ago but I didn't remember anything. Nothing. So the culprit was a surprise, the plot is quite muddy and with a sluggish pace. Dalgliesh is mostly a tool of the plot here nothing more. Which is rare. Usually we get some insight in his head, some glimpse of his inner emotion, here almost none at all. Overall it's a solid, yet strangely constructed plot with some innovative twists for the time.
