|'Wish You Were Here'
by Tony Williamson
Tara learns her that uncle has been on holiday for a month, and that no one is able to contact him; deciding to investigate, she travels to the Elizabethan Hotel where he is staying in order to find him. When her uncle tells her that he and his fellow guests are all being held prisoner, Tara refuses to believe him; she tries to leave and get help, but promptly falls victim to several strange accidents which prevent her from leaving the building. Tara soon discovers that the hotel provides a unique service for certain guests: they can check in, but cannot check out - ever. In an attempt to undermine the hotel operations, Tara and her uncle take over the kitchens, but unknown to them there is a traitor in their midst...
