The body in the snow is that of Ben Wylie, the heir to America's second-wealthiest business dynasty, and it is found in a remote patch of northern Canada. Far away, in post-crash New York, Jamie Cabot, the son of the Wylie family's housekeepers, must figure out how and why Ben died. He knows the answer lies in the tortured history of the Wylie family, who over three generations built up their massive holdings into several billion dollars' worth of real estate, oil, and information systems despite a terrible family secret they must keep from the world. The threads of the Wylie men's destinies, both financial and supernatural, lead twistingly but inevitably to the naked body in the snow and a final, chilling revelation.

i like the plotline but the execution leaves something to be desired, the story of a ultra rich man lying in the snow begs to be discovered, if only to find out why hes lying there, and thats where the story breaks down, i found it kinda dry almost as an biography telling facts both of his life interspered with the lives of Ben and the Wylies family. At the same time giving us a glimpse of how many of the very rich live and interact while Ben and his family were exceptions to the rule in many ways. As i said its has a very intersting plotline but the writing as he does leaves the reader wondering if there is more. a 2 out of a 5

I loved this book! The writing is fabulous, especially the searing commentary on the uber-rich.
