Karine Giebel was born in 1971 in Provence, where she still lives. After law school, she was employed as civil servant. But the writing virus got her as a child. So she released her first novel, Terminal Elicius, in 2004 in the series Rail Noir. She won the « Prix marseillais du polar ». Since she has written several trillers, Meurtres pour rédemption, Les Morsures de l’ombre (winner of Prix Intramuros au Festival polar de Cognac, prix SNCF du polar and Prix Derrière les Murs at the Festival International du Roman Noirl), Chiens de sang, Jusqu’à ce que la mort nous unisse (winner of the Festival Players of polar Cognac) and Juste une ombre (Fleuve noir, 2012).
Her novels are translated into many languages and some are being adapted as Films.
