Jeffrey Siger is the international best-selling author of the Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis mystery series that explores issues confronting contemporary Greece in a way that touches upon its ancient roots. The New York Journal of Books described him as 'One of those rare writers whose finger is always on the pulse of modern day upheavals. He is never afraid to tackle and expose uncomfortable subjects'subjects most writers avoid...a master story teller.'
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he practiced law at a major Wall Street law firm and while there served as Special Counsel to the citizens group responsible for reporting on New York City's prison conditions. He left Wall Street to establish his own New York City law firm and continued as one of its name partners until giving it all up to write full-time among the people, life, and politics of his beloved Mykonos, his adopted home of thirty years.
The New York Times described his novels as 'thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales,' the Greek Press said his work is 'prophetic,' Eurocrime called him a 'very gifted American author...on a par with other American authors such as Joseph Wambaugh or Ed McBain,' and the City of San Francisco awarded him its Certificate of Honor citing that his 'acclaimed books have not only explored modern Greek society and its ancient roots but have inspired political change in Greece.' He is also an adjunct professor of English at Washington and Jefferson College, teaching mystery writing.
