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 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 as Greece’s thriller novelist of record, and the Greek Government’s General Secretariat of Media and Communications has selected him as one of six authors—and the only American—writing mysteries that serve as a guide to Greece.
His work is published in the US, UK, Germany and Greece, and he's honored to have 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.
His new book is "An Aegean April," focused on the Greek island of Lesvos in what Library Journal (starred review) says, “vividly depicts the political and economic issues involved in the European refugee crisis,” and picked as one of the Best Books of 2018.
