Jeffrey Siger is an American living on the Aegean Greek island of Mykonos. A Pittsburgh native and former Wall Street lawyer, he gave up his career as a name partner in his  own New York City law firm to write mystery thrillers that tell more than just a fast-paced story. His novels are aimed at exploring serious societal issues confronting modern day Greece in a tell-it-like-it-is style while touching upon the country’s ancient roots.

The New York Times Book Review has honored his work by designating him “Greece’s thriller novelist of Record”, and the Greek Government’s General Secretariat of Media and Communications has selected Siger as one of six authors—and the only American—writing mysteries that serve as a guide to Greece.

His debut novel, Murder in Mykonos (a sort of Mamma Mia setting for a No Country for Old Men story), became Greece’s #1 best-selling English-language novel (and a best-seller in Greek, as well).  As of April 2019, Sigler has authored ten Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis novels. The New York Times has called the entire Kaldis series, “thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales.

This award-winning author’s work is published in the US, UK, Germany (German), and Greece (Greek and English), and he has served as Chair of the National Board of Bouchercon, the world’s largest mystery convention, and as Adjunct Professor of English at Washington & Jefferson College, teaching mystery writing.
