A smart, sexy and hilarious heist novel about a crew of thieves who attempt to steal the world's most valuable jewels from the world's most valuable body. Clarissa Cartwright, the planet's most famous beauty, is about to take the stage wearing a fortune in jewels, and not much else. In the wings, a motley crew of bumbling crooks is scheming to make off with the biggest heist of their careers: five and a half million dollars in precious stones, used to create the world's most expensive piece of lingerie. But mix the glitz and glamour of the highest of high fashion with a team of crooks that would have trouble stealing a sandwich from a deli, and all bets are off. When the robbers find themselves pursued by both the intimidating ex-cop tasked with protecting the world's most valuable piece of lingerie and Clarissa's insanely jealous and mobbed-up ex-boyfriend, things get ugly. Especially when Clarissa decides she's had quite enough of being an object and decides to turn the tables on both the crooks and the fashion world. Ice Chest combines the page-turning skill of J.D. Rhoades's acclaimed Jack Keller thrillers with the excitement and humor of Ocean's Eleven.
