The Kings of Cool - Don Winslow The gist is this: Ben's mom once slept with Chon's dad, who met Chon's mom at a party where O's mom supplied the coke, and they all know a kingpin called Doc (who is also O's real father) who was known to a DEA agent named Dennis who is now on Ben's payroll.

Everyone is involved, but no one knows for sure who is in the game, or out of it. The sheer mass of unlikely coincidence is staggeringly unrealistic, but it works a lot better than Savages.
