About this title

Synopsis:

Recounts the shocking true story of a group of wealthy young men from Los Angeles who bonded together as investment partners but wound up as murder conspirators

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.
