John Bodkin Adams (21 January 1899 - 4 July 1983) was an Irish-born British general practitioner, convicted fraudster and suspected serial killer.

Between the years 1946 and 1956, more than 160 of his patients died in suspicious circumstances. Of these, 132 left him money or items in their will. He was tried and acquitted for the murder of one patient in 1957. Another count of murder was withdrawn by the prosecution in what was later described as an abuse of process by the presiding judge Patrick Devlin, causing questions to be asked in Parliament about the prosecutions handling of events. The trial featured in headlines around the world and was described at the time as one of the greatest murder trials of all time and murder trial of the century.

It was also described at the time as unique because, in the words of the judge, the act of murder had to be proved by expert evidence.
