SUMMARY: It is the dead of winter and the 4077 is out of everything: medicine, bandages, light bulbs, gel foam, and general supplies; a Supply Truck delivers mosquito netting and an ice cream churn. BJ gets a book: a mystery novel; everyone is so bored, he rips it from the binding, chapter by chapter so everyone can read along. But the final page of the whodunnit is missing. Winchester nearly kills a patient with curare as it was "too dark" to read the label. BJ saves the patient and Hawkeye calls Winchester to the carpet. A new truck brings the supplies they need... except for the big answer to their big mystery.
