capers with a suburban twist
On Thin Ice
THE NECKLACE WAS TO DIE FOR. SERIOUSLY.
Kate Albertson is a word nerd, dog lover and high-end diamond thief. A heist-gone-wrong forces her to take a certain necklace back…while the new owner, a rich man’s mistress, is wearing it. Kate only thought things were out of control before, as she now finds herself the prime suspect in a murder investigation. She quickly learns that while there may be honor among thieves, the same can’t said for those inhabiting L.A.’s most lavish homes and country clubs. It’ll take every burglar’s trick she knows to keep a step ahead of the police and find the real killer.
Karl Fields was born in El Paso, Texas, and, as an Army brat, attended six schools by seventh grade, including one in Okinawa and two in Germany. Not staying in one place for long became a theme that continued into adulthood, as he has worked in television news, advertising, public relations, banking and energy.
He writes for ‘tweens, teens and adults, presently focused on a series that features a high-end diamond thief with a bad habit of landing herself in the middle of murder mysteries. The first book, On Thin Ice, is due this summer.
He has also written the Mom Con series, a trilogy that follows single working mother Anita through a series of adventures that prove the adage: Don’t get mad, get even.
Karl currently lives near Houston, Texas.
