About this product
- DescriptionThe Dealer is a gripping and fast moving comedy gangster vel. Hard-core East London villain, Danny 'The Dealer' Dempsey, has settled for a quiet country life in the rural village of Buntleyford, but wakes one morning, in his heavily secured home, to find a letter resting on his pillow. He is bewildered by how it got there, as there are signs of an intruder, or a break in. The mystery of who the letter is from - and what it contains - is something The Dealer will t share, even with his closest friends, or his dear sister Sally. The Dealer, rmally a clear lateral thinker, is suddenly behaving out of character; and so begins a crazy 12-hour period, in which he succeeds in ruining his sister's wedding, disrespecting other gangland leaders, and turning his hand to gambling on ludicrous bets. Slowly but surely, The Dealer is dangerously offending and taunting everyone around him. Could The Dealer be on the brink of self-destruction? Or will he somehow succeed in saving his own skin at the final hour - while revealing to all the secrets of the letter that has clearly been dictating his bizarre behaviour?
