Fascinated by the idea of researching the basic building blocks of life, Eva Eich initially studied human and molecular biology. After excursions into veterinary and forensic medicine, she decided to pursue a career in journalism. She worked for Saarländischer Rundfunk, among others, before moving to a large TV station in Bavaria. She got off to a flying start in the book charts with her first Escape crime novel in 2019. Since the huge success of her Escape Room bestsellers, she has also been travelling live and online across Germany to events for her books.
