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.

Fascinating, well told story. Made me ignore the sat nav and go the long way on every journey.
I liked the way this was narrated. I was able to clearly identify each character by the way they spoke. Too often you come across narrators trying to do this but doing a terrible job.
If you like this kind of book, this is a must read/listen. Would make a great film.
