Helen Eustis, whose college experiences inspired her Edgar Award-winning novel The Horizontal Man, "in which a philandering English professor is murdered at a small college replete with psychologically unstable students and professors," died January 11. She was 98. She won the Edgar from Mystery Writers of America for Best First Novel in 1947. Eustis also translated books written in French, including works by authors Christiane Rochefort and Georges Simenon.
