Characters
The Heap [Baron Eric von Emmelman]; Rickie Wood; Felix Tibbets (millionaire); Dobbs (Tibbet's attorney); Johnson (a surveyor, death); Jane (classmate of Rickie); un-named parents of Jane; Mr. Stark (a surveyor, death)
Synopsis
Millionaire Felix Tibbets spends $5 million on a jinxed hotel, and plans to have his annual vacation for high school kids reside there. Meanwhile, Jane advises Rickie that their class is the one invited to the hotel, and Rickie decides to fly them in his glider over there, which the Heap notices. Talk of the hotel being jinxed seems to affect the Heap, who kills one of the surveyors before Rickie uses his glider to knock the creature off a high ledge, presumably to its death.
