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.

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.… (mere)

Rhoades takes a break from his usual thrillers to give us a fun caper. When a jeweled bra worth five million dollars is advertised for a fashion show, various groups are interested. The mobster boyfriend of the model sees an opportunity, but so does a small-time crook whose nephew works in the hotel where the show is to take place. Various groups, also including the security company hired for the show, the nephew and the girl he likes, and others, converge. This sort of story lends itself to stereotypical characters, and some of these are caricatures, but Rhoades does a fine job of giving several of them enough quirks, fears, dreams, and other qualities to make them into real characters. There's a good bit of humor and a satisfying ending. ( )
