It's Christmas week in Aspen, and the beautiful are out party by day on the magnificent slopes of Aspen, by night at whatever exclusive holiday fate is on tap. Among the revelers is Regan Reilly, a bright young private investigator who has come from L.A. to ski and celebrate with her parents and their rich Aspen friends. It ends up being a busman's holiday for Regan, who gets swept up in art theft intrigue after some multimillion-dollar paintings are stolen from her parent's friends. The thieves continue to elude capture, but Regan is on their trail. She's up against time, though, as the clock ticks down to Aspen's biggest party of the season-at which the town's most valuable painting of all will be unveiled.
