Title: "Frozen Harvest"
Author: Joseph Benedict
Synopsis: Mary Benton, traveling alone by train, arrived in the small town of Seven Lakes, Minnesota, on Dec. 5, 1925. In the early evening of Dec. 22, Mary left her room at The Seven Lakes Grand Hotel in the middle of a severe snowstorm, never to return. A mysterious letter arriving at the office of Minneapolis detective Joel Vick, nearly 90 years after her disappearance, suggested there may have been something else at play on that fateful night.
