I'm not sure if she actually wrote any detective stories but Patricia Highsmith seems like a candidate. Didn't she write the story "Strangers on a Train" was based on? I've only read one Highsmith ("Talented Mr. Ripley") and I despised it (not because Ripley was bad but because I found him insanely dull), but she obviously has many devotees.
