A new year and a new mission for Kitty.
Having successfully located the bomb on the previous mission, Kitty is on the next level of training and is delighted to see conditions have improved considerably.
This time she's in a rather nice hotel room and now she knows where she is as there is a rather pleasant note from the management with her mission instructions.
Time to explore—the room is a big octagonal one with a double bed. It’s been done up very nicely for the time of year with tinsel decorating the walls, one of those dancing Santa Clauses jangling away on the windowsill and a rather jolly Christmas tree in the corner next to the door leading through to a separate bath and shower cubicle.
And there’s snacks too! Tea and coffee making facilities, a nice selection of biccies and funsize chocolate bars:a Mars, a Bounty and an Aero. Ooh a minibar too! On the top shelf is a selection of alcohol—gin, whiskey, brandy and on the bottom shelf a range of condiments—mint sauce, mayonnaise, cranberry sauce and mustard.
In the bookcase are a few novels, a couple of children’s books, ’The Mystery of the Locked Hotel Room’, a book of birthstones, a book of zodiac signs, a guide to alphabet substitution codes and ‘Fungal Fun—a study of amusing skin diseases.’
In the cupboard by the bath are some cleaning things—some rubber gloves, an apron, a small iron, some hand and face towels and a couple of small bottles of Febreze fabric conditioner and Surf washing powder. And a small dead spider… yuk…
So there you go Kitty. Lie back on the hotel bed, enjoy the contents of the minibar and try to deduce when and where this bomb will go off.
