9780312922320: The Billionaire Boys Club
From Library Journal:

The Billionaire Boy's Club (BBC), an investment group, was in reality a cult-like group led by Joe Hunt, a charismatic sociopath who preached the Paradox Philosophy, a Machiavellian approach to life. After losing millions in investment scams gone awry, Hunt turned to kidnapping and murder as a way to solve the BBC's and his growing financial problems. Ultimately, Hunt and three other members of the BBC were sentenced to life without parole; another member lives under an assumed name. This well-written book describes a tragedy--bright, well-educated, privileged young men led astray by their greed and weakness of character into a life of crime. Already the subject of a 60 Minutes segment and a TV miniseries (the script of which was based on Horton's Los Angeles magazine article), this fascinating story of rich kids, money, and murder will be very popular. Recommended.

From Publishers Weekly:

Joe Hunt, 23-year-old failed commodities broker, and some L.A. prep-school classmates formed a business and social club. They raised vast sums of money--and lost millions, whereupon they turned to kidnapping and murder. "Horton suspensefully relates this shocking story from Hunt's boyhood through the 1987 trial at which he and two others were sentenced to life imprisonment," said PW. Photos.

Book Description SMP, 1990. Softcover / Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. Paperback. From millionaires to murderers - the shocking true story of rich kids, fast money and deadly ambition. They had it made - family wealth, good looks, and the best possible educations. But the cunning, charismatic Joe Hunt mesmerised them into believing that it wasn't enough. Some of them would blindly follow the financial whiz-kid into a dark, seductive world of big money and power, where their greed would lead to betrayal and murder. In this astonishing true account, you will meet the LA yuppies who followed the violent ambition of their dictatorial leader into tragedy. You will come face-to-face with the handsome, persuasive Joe Hunt - a brilliant up-and-coming commodities trader hypnotically programmed for success. You will finally understand how this 25yr old iceman could lure a number of rich overachievers into a multimillion-dollar spiral of con-men, extortion - and court trials for two cold-blooded killings. Illus. 354pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
