British writer of popular detective and mystery stories. The daughter of an author, she was trained to write from her early years and had her first novel published at 16. Her fame began at 24 with "The Crime of Black Dudley." She created keen-witted, self-effacing Albert Campion, one of the best loved fictional detectives. She had lighthearted thrillers like "Death of a Ghost," 1934, and postwar novels of mature insight and powerful atmosphere, like "Tiger in the Smoke," 1952. She married an artist-editor in 1927.

Allingham died 6/30/1966, Colchester, England, of cancer.
