a young businessman from London is looking for a place to stay
1.billy inquires about a place to stay, he sees a sign and is compelled to enter
2.an eerily polite lady opens the door and convinces him to stay
3.they discuss former guests-but are they still there? the lady serves him tea, billy sees 2 names in the guest book he cant place
"i stuff all my little pets when they pass away"
1.tea tastes like bitter almonds
2.landlady makes sure billy has signed the guest book
landlady tells billy he is the only guest for 2-3 years
things are not always as they seem.
don't judge a book by it's color
