William Harrington


USA flag (1931 - 2000)

William G. Harrington, a mystery novelist with a long career as a collaborator with celebrity authors, died on Nov. 8 at his home in Greenwich, Conn. He was 68.

The police said he apparently committed suicide.

Mr. Harrington, whose writing career spanned 37 years and included the 1982 thriller ''The English Lady,'' actually wrote his own obituary before he died, said his friend and lawyer, Louis P. Pittocco.

The material was discovered in the home of Mr. Harrington, who had dated his death on Oct. 25. In this letter, Mr. Harrington described himself as a ghostwriter and took credit for writing books under the names of Harold Robbins and Margaret Truman.
