Germany, World War II. Two English pilots are shot down and crash land behind enemy lines. The area swarming with German troops, they have only minutes to crawl from the wreckage and make their escape. Boarding a train reserved for wounded SS men on the way home from the eastern front, they ditch their clothing and personal belongings and pose as German soldiers, hiding for days in soiled, bloody beds, feigning unconsciousness. But their act is too convincing and they find find themselves being transferred to Alphabet House, a mental hospital for those damaged by war. How will they escape? And for how long can you simulate insanity without going crazy for real? They are playing a dangerous game and it seems they might not be the only ones in Alphabet House hiding secrets... Alphabet House is a page-turning psychological thriller, containing the same panache and style fans will have come to know and love from Jussi-Adler Olsen's Department Q series and is a great introduction for those who are yet to discover this award-winning author.

The Andrew Martin brand no longer just stands for a sumptuous selection of decorative fabrics, wall cov-erings, designer furniture, and home accessories, but also for the “Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year Award.” Volume 18 of the Interior Design Review once again features the designers who have won over the renowned jury with their work. Richly illustrated with over 1000 color photographs, this retrospective of the publication—now in its 18th year—has been dubbed “the bible of interior design.” A compendium of contemporary interior design styles, it’s essential for any professional interior decorator or design lover. The artists are individually presented, followed by contact details in an appendix. The broad sweep of exemplary interiors represents an extraordinary variety of international design—brought to life with lush, glossy photos. With a mix of different cultures, the interiors assembled here nostalgically allude to a wide range of styles, while also embodying Andrew Martin’s dazzling world of interior design. © Andrew Martin Interior Design Review Volume 18, published by teNeues, www.teneues.com.
