SHADOW ON THE MOUNTAIN IS THE TRUE STORY OF AN ASPEN SOCIALITE, FULL OF LIFE. . .UNTIL SHE WAS FOUND BEATEN TO DEATH IN HER OWN HOME. Heir to Colorado's Buttermilk Mountain, the world-renowned site of the Winter X Games, Nancy Pfister was Aspen royalty, its ambassador to the world. She lived among the rich and famous--partying with Hunter S. Thompson, dating Jack Nicholson, even having a joint baby shower with Goldie Hawn. Nancy was also a philanthropist, admired for her generosity. But those closest to her, such as her assistant Kathy Carpenter and friends Dr. and Mrs. Styler, allege that Nancy was manipulative, cruel, and petty. Did they make her pay a price? WHAT HAPPENED TO NANCY PFISTER--AND WHO IS THE GUILTY PARTY IN THIS REAL-LIFE MURDER MYSTERY? Dr. William Styler and his wife came to Aspen in 2013 to reinvent themselves after a misguided lawsuit left them near poverty. Meeting Nancy Pfister was their answered prayer: She took the Stylers in and allowed them to launch their new spa business. Everything seemed perfect until Pfister made increasingly irrational demands on the Stylers, and threatened to throw them out on the street. When Nancy was found dead, the couple, along with Kathy Carpenter, all became prime suspects. But in this close-knit, wealthy town set on keeping its secrets safe from the public eye, the police struggled to solve the shocking murder on Buttermilk Mountain. . .
