Eva Ehley’s Sylt-fever goes back, if not to her birth and childhood in Berlin, at least to her wedding. Since then she and her husband and sons have spent many summers on the island together and have watched the antics of the rich and beautiful there. Eva Ehley kept her silence for a long time, but eventually her criminological creativity won out. Since then she has been a regular instigator of murder on the island – if only on paper. She has twice been nominated for the Agatha-Christie-Prize for Crime Fiction, in 2012 and 2013.
