Welcome to the secluded Hotel Or,deep in the jungles of coastal Mexico. The hotel is a criminal money-making machine, a sausage grinder processing elderly retirees for their savings and pensions. In walks Ed ‘Never Ever Eddie’ Rang, a young and resourceful fourteen-year-old girl, who first explores the deadly hotel before being trapped in its claws.
She is up against the hotel’s owner, Constance Snapp, a cruel and clever megalomaniac with a deadly clan of gypsies assisting in her evil and murderous profiteering. The hotel is rife with murderous misfits and its permanent residents, an assortment of wealthy recluses, some still sane, others as dangerous and mad as the hotel owner.
