Former professional boxer Jackie "Disaster" De Sesto
manages Allegation Services, a crisis-management spin-
doctor firm. His offices overlook the gaming floor of the
Golden Prospect Casino in Atlantic City, owned by his prime
customer and girlfriend, Angela Vanni, daughter of a
deceased Mafia boss. Jackie Disaster and his team of Imps
handle and often deliver scams and cons to paint a rosy
picture of his clients regardless of the truth.
Millionaire Sally Naturale hires Jackie Disaster and
associates to restore her and her firm's reputation.
Murrin Connolly filed a lawsuit claiming that the organic
soymilk that Sally's company produces caused her to
miscarry. Expert Jonah Eastman suggests a two front
attack. First Jackie Disaster and team need to destroy the
credibility of Murrin with a negative dirt smearing
campaign and second Sally must act contrite in public as a
counter to her posh upper crust living style. Instead of
smooth sailing, Jackie lives up to his nickname as nothing
goes right especially when Sally vanishes. Jackie and the
Imps begin a new counteroffensive.
JACKIE DISASTER is a superb satire that showcases a
professional who uses any means including dirty tricks to
provide counter cover for the rich and famous. The story
line stuns the audience with its relative simplicity that
paints a dirty image making game by the in crowd to protect
their reputation. A cast, starting with the antihero and
his cohorts including his father, niece, girlfriend, and
new client make for a wild ride down the Jersey shore. To
protect the image of Eric Dezenhall, a sequel is required.
