Overview

This riveting, true-crime adventure lays out the rise and fall of a multimillion-dollar yuppie drug ring run by a dental student and his two classmates. Awash in drugs, sex and money, the college chums built a fifty-kilo-a-month cocaine conglomerate, buying and selling enough white powder to anesthetize thirteen Eastern seaboard states. The kingpin, Larry Lavin, a model husband and father, managed his enterprise like a Fortune 500 business, earning over a milliondollars a year before his 25th birthday. After the FBI cracked the ring and arrested dozens of his operatives, Lavin jumped bail and lived like a rich retiree until two dogged agents tracked him down and sent him to prison for 21 years.

The story of the dual lives of a rich young dentist and his partners, leaders of a $60 million a year cocaine ring.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Twenty-six-year-old Larry Lavin, a gregarious, civic-minded, affluent Philadelphia dentist, headed a 12-state drug network through which he supplied his customers, many of them former prep-school and University of Pennsylvania friends who, in turn, often became dealers themselves. In this expanded version of a Philadelphia magazine article, Saline, coauthor of Straight Talk, recounts how he organized the drug ring and the FBI's four-year investigation, which led to the convictions of Lavin and 82 co-conspirators in 1987. Along the way, the author also provides an alarming insight into the extent of student addiction in a suspenseful tale of international intrigue involving a gallery of Ivy League clients, drug runners, Cuban and Colombian cocaine suppliers and mafioso distributors.
