Just days before Bernard Madoff captured headlines as the largest Ponzi schemer in U.S. history, Marc Dreier,a prominent Manhattan attorney, was arrested for orchestrating a massive fraud scheme that netted hundreds of millions of dollars from hedge funds. Brazen forgeries and impersonations branded the white-collar crime spree remarkable. Unraveled is set in the “purgatory” of house arrest – – an upper East Side penthouse — where the Court has ordered Dreier confined until his sentencing day. (Like Unraveled on Facebook here).
