Eric Walz (alias Eric Berg) was born in 1966 in Königstein.

Ever since 2002, the year he decided to fullfill his childhood dream to become an author, he has been writing books. Quickly he made his mark as a writer of intriguing historical fiction: His debut novel „Die Herrin der Päpste“, a book on the life and times of Marozia, the influential and powerful mother of the Roman Pope Johannes XI, was an instant success. Many other works with historical setting were to follow, such as his historical crime novel trilogy on stained-glass artist Antonia Bender.

Only recently, he has increasingly turned to contemporary crime fiction published under his pseudonym Eric Berg. His latest novel „Das Nebelhaus“, a blood-curdling tale of murder and intrigue among a group of old college friends, has been at the top of German bestseller lists for months. In Spring 2015, his first book for young adults will be published by arsEdition - an atmospheric, gripping crime story set at boarding school and told from a multitude of perspectives. Another volume is already in the making!

Eric Walz lives in Berlin and on Gran Canaria.

Then suddenly the situation culminates and unloads in a horrible scream, whose origin remains unclear until the end of the story. Introducing a multitude of perspectives recounting the horrible events retrospectively, bestselling author Eric Berg gradually lets the individual pieces of the jigsaw fall into place to form a gruesome whole …
