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.

3rd TIME BETTER THAN 1ST

I have read other books by Bowden including Killing Pablo and Black Hawk Down. The book is a pale comparison to those 2 excellent writings.
No, but I wish that the author had chosen a more compelling story or more colorful characters. This is a very uninteresting book.
None, they all blend into each other that it's difficult to tell them apart.
Surprised and disappointed that Mark Bowden chose to tell this story. These people are boring and the story is the direct opposite of "suspenseful".
