This riveting, true-crime story tracks the operations of multimillion-dollar yuppie drug ring run by a twenty-six year old dentist and two of his classmates. The three fell into drug dealing while college students as an easy way to make fast money and they soon learned to manage their underground enterprise as efficiently as any Fortune 500 firm. Awash in sex, drugs and money, they built a fifty-kilo-a-month cocaine conglomerate, buying and selling enough white powder to anesthetize thirteen Eastern seaboard states. Until the FBI cracked the ring, its kingpin, Larry Lavin, a model husband and father, was earning over a million bucks a year for his "services rendered."

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.
