Read full description of the books:
Quarantine in the Grand Hotel centers around a mysterious murder in a hotel on the island of Little Lagonda, which is put under quarantine because one of the guests seems to have contracted bubonic plague. However, just before the quarantine is declared, the police arrive, and so does a young man, who hides in his pyjamas in the wardrobe of Miss Maud Borckman. It turns out that of the numerous guests under quarantine, any number could have committed the murder the police have come to investigate, including the stranger in pyjamas and Maud, as well as a prince and a janitor, even a police officer. Hilarious mayhem abounds all around as the true identities of the hotel guests come to light, and the stranger in pyjamas finally gets to take a hot bath and lays hold of some clothes.

Read information about the authorJenő Rejtő (born Jenő Reich, pseudonyms: P. Howard, Gibson Lavery) was a Hungarian author, fiction writer, playwright and journalist, who died as a forced labourer during the World War II. He was born in Budapest, Austria-Hungary, on March 29, 1905, and died in Yevdokovo, Soviet Union (then under Axis occupation) on January 1, 1943.
He studied drama before traveling across Europe. When he returned to Hungary he became a successful playwright, responsible for such operettas as "Who Dares Wins" (1934). He then went on to write adventure novels parodying the Foreign Legion, which often featured his somewhat bizarre sense of humor.
He reportedly died in 1942 in a labor camp after he was taken from hospital whilst seriously ill. The stamp issued in his honor depicts various images such as a North African sunset (a reference to his Foreign Legion stories), a cafe he frequented and a copy of Nagykorut - the newspaper he edited hanging on the stand.
