Doctor Dealer: The Rise and Fall of an All-American Boy and His Multimillion-Dollar Cocaine Empire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of "Black Hawk Down" comes the true story that "The Baltimore Sun" calls "shocking . . . briskly and brilliantly told" of Larry Lavin, a wealthy dentist who built the foundation for a cocaine empire that would grow to generate over $60 million in annual sales.

Synopsis:

Doctor Dealer is the story of Larry Lavin, a bright, charismatic young man who rose from his working-class upbringing to win a scholarship to a prestigious boarding school, earn Ivy League college and dental degrees, and buy his family a house in one of Philadelphia's most exclusive suburbs. But behind the facade of his success was a dark secret — at every step of the way he was building the foundation for a cocaine empire that would grow to generate over $60 million in annual sales. Award-winning journalist Mark Bowden tells the saga of Lavin's rise and fall with the gripping, novelistic narrative style that won him international acclaim as the author of the New York Times best-seller Black Hawk Down. "Immensely readable . . . eye-popping . . . a smoothly crafted, exciting, can't-put-it-down book." — Louisville New Voice
