In Jackie Disaster, Eric Dezenhall takes readers on a nail-biting tour of modern day damage control, providing a clear-eyed, view of what ghts celebrities deal with on a daily basis. One of its leading practitioners, Dezenhall examines hot-button issues including the role of reality television programming, the Internet and spread of disinformation, the role of consumer illusion in the popular culture, and the less-than-holy motives of those who would justify attacks on celebrities in moral terms.

From his curved-glass desk in a casino overlooking the Atlantic City boardwalk, Jackie “Disaster” DeSesto—an ex-welterweight boxing champ and former top flack for the Atlantic City Police Department—has a great view of the hustlers he now makes his living nailing. Jackie runs Allegation Sciences, a crisis management firm known for helping businesses with uncomfortably public problems. That’s why Sally Naturale, America’s deliciously loathsome doyenne of good taste and wholesome living, hires him after a pregnant South Jersey woman blames her miscarriage on Sally’s organic soy milk. Jackie doesn’t buy the poor woman’s story and, worse, he doesn’t buy Sally Naturale’s version either. His suspicions are confirmed when assassins from the Jersey Pine Barrens try to kill him one night in his sleep.So with his band of subversives (a.k.a. the Imps), Jackie embarks on a gonzo damage control campaign to vindicate Sally and catch the folks who are trying to drag him down with her. In turns suspenseful and hilarious, Jackie Disaster is a spin-till-you’re dizzy dance through the mysteries of media manipulation and South Jersey.

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.

I could only get through 1/4 of this book because of the inconsistencies and outright errors. It spoiled what is decent writing. I live in Atlantic City and work in the gaming industry, so when I saw this book in the library I snatched it up (thank goodness I didn't waste my hard-earned money!).
First of all, his charaterization of Atlatnic City casinos is totally incorrect. He has a mobster owning an AC casino, something that would NEVER happnen in the 25 years of legal gambling in AC. It just can't happen because the regulations are so tight. And the hero, Jackie, is a consultant who has full run of the casino where he works. Again, would NEVER happen. Early in the book Jackie and his cohorts grill a woman in the "Hellivator," a specially adapted elevator to pressure cheaters. What an imagaination! It would NEVER happen.
But OK, for arguement's sake, let's give him some literary license.
The hero, Jackie, is an Italian American who supposedly has a problem early in the book with the "stereotype" of the Wop. But a few pages later, he makes fun of an Italian American who graduated college and is the casino's COO because this gentleman forgot how close he is to Siciily. You can't have it both ways.
And his introduction of characters (all of whom have the typical "mob" nicknames, another inconsistency for someone who doesn't like sterotypes) is like a shotgun. He tries to out-Elmore Leonard Elmore Leonard, and fails miserably.
An extremely disappointing book and for anyone familiar with the South Jersey/Atlantic City area, his errors are unforgivable. And spell check would have indeed helped.
Pass this one by.

Last year, I read "Money Wanders" and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to pick up "Jackie Disaster." This book was even better than the first novel by this author. While both books were fun, (I actually laughed out loud many times) "Jackie Disaster" had a really well developed feel to it. The cast of characters was interesting, the plot ran smoothly without telegraphing the ending and I found myself completely caught up in the action. I definitely recommend this one-as well as "Money Wanders." Can't wait for Dezenhall's next book.

I agree with the other reviewers that this book is great fun to read. But apparently no proofreader did so. This publication is absolutely RIFE with typos, punctuation gaffes and distracting errors. SpellCheck isn't enough, Thomas Dunne Books - a live human needs to proof it, too.
