In the first story Frank goes on vacation after receiving his promotion. While he is gone two bodies have mysteriously appeared in locked motel rooms. The day he returns from vacation a third body is found. There are similarities between all the victims. They were all middle aged men, they were found naked on the bed in motel room, and each victim was missing some body parts. The were no personal items, including clothing, found in the rooms.
