I'm not sure about the cop, but I think he was a flash from her life, and wasn't really at the hotel -- the same sort of thing that she saw and heard in the room next door, and in the messages on her phone.(less) (hide spoiler)]

This was good, even if somewhat predictable. Predictable doesn't always mean bad, however.
A young woman gets mixed up with the wrong guy and ends up in the middle of a robbery and murder. She pulls into a quiet deserted hotel to hide out. Then things get weird.
I can't say much more without getting into spoilers, but I did suspect the ending before I got there. Still a good creepy Halloween read.
There were times I cringed and wondered about the outcome of the story. It was a great plot and an ending that surprised me!
I'm looking forward to reading more of the Dark Corners collection of short stories!

Oh my goodness, what a great idea ...from the 7 books the ones I did enjoy the best were "The Sleep Tight Motel" 1st & "Hannah-Beast" 2nd, if you know anything about Beth... I love mysteries ...but I don't really enjoy the scary parts. I love parts of Halloween. but the happy scary part. I think my understanding of these stories were meant to be short and quick ... maybe to get you hooked to read more from the author of you so desire?!
