The singer suspiciously survives and turns up wandering in the haunted woods. Soon after, a celebrity sculptor vanishes after unveiling his unflattering statue of the star. The cops say its homicide, and make plans to bust Turnpike Bobby.When the media circus begins, gangland-bred pollster Jonah Eastman is hired to devise a P.A.S. (Plausible Alternative Scenario) for the sculptors death. A beautiful au pair vanishes from Atlantic City, and its all the media want to talk about - not Bobby. Which angers Bobby because he hasnt gotten this much attention since the Reagan Administration. As he works to vindicate the rocker, Jonah enters the inner-sanctum of the celebrity icon, a world so seductive and lethal that Jonah waxes nostalgic for his days working for the Mafia.TURNPIKE FLAMEOUT is a black comic ride through the underbelly of mega-stardom and the spins employed by handlers to ensure that crime pays. Quite well, actually.
