1875

Meet & Greet and Book Signing after dicussion

A Frost in Hell – In the spring of 1875, almost no one outside of Worcester
county had ever heard of Petersham. By the fall of 1875, the entire country had
heard of Petersham. A diabolical murder took place in the summer of 1875 and
suddenly the town of Petersham was famous. This is that true story. July 4th,
1875. While most people were planning celebrations, one man had another idea -
murder. And this was no ordinary murder. What Samuel J. Frost did on July 4th
was outrageous, and it was only the beginning. He would become a national
sensation, but not so much because of his crime. Instead, it was what he did AFTER
the murder that stunned the country. His became the “trial of the year” in
Massachusetts, and it would not disappoint.
