12/26/1917 Patricia McGerr is born
One member of a group of bored American soldiers at a base in the Arctic gets a package from home. Among the wrappings is a scrap of his hometown newspaper, announcing that someone he knows has been convicted of murder - but the identity of the victim is not included. So the soldiers pass the time by learning all that the recipient knows about the "suspects," trying to figure out who was killed.
