British crime novelist P.D. James — known as the “Queen of Crime” — has died at the age of 94.
James’ longtime publisher Faber & Faber reports she died at her home in Oxford on Thursday.
James wrote more than 20 crime novels over the course of her career — but she didn’t start writing until she was 40 years old.
