Publisher's Summary

The wild, true story of the Mutiny, the hotel and club that embodied the decadence of Miami's cocaine cowboys heyday - and an inspiration for the blockbuster film Scarface....
In the '70s, coke hit Miami with the full force of a hurricane, and no place attracted dealers and dopers like Coconut Grove's Mutiny at Sailboat Bay. Hollywood royalty, rock stars, and models flocked to the hotel's club to order bottle after bottle of Dom and to snort lines alongside narcos, hit men, and gunrunners, all while marathon orgies burned upstairs in elaborate fantasy suites.
Amid the boatloads of powder and cash reigned the new kings of Miami: three waves of Cuban immigrants vying to dominate the trafficking of one of the most lucrative commodities ever known to man. But as the kilos - and bodies - began to pile up, the Mutiny became target number one for law enforcement.
Based on exclusive interviews and never-before-seen documents, Hotel Scarface is a portrait of a city high on excess and greed, an extraordinary work of investigative journalism offering an unprecedented view of the rise and fall of cocaine - and the Mutiny - in Miami.

All around great!

for anybody who is a fan of the Cocaine Cowboys documentaries or the movie Scarface or the city of Miami any one of those three this book is a must. The author does a great job getting your to know each character that was involved in importing cocaine into Miami and didn't obsess over Pablo Escobar like a lot of books tend to do. His name was mentioned because obviously if you talking about cocaine in the seventies and eighties his name has to be mentioned but it focused on some of the minor characters who are very interesting and some of the kingpins that were just over the top and it all centered around one hotel.

Ehh...

I found myself ready for this book to end. it loosely follows a few main characters and constantly sprinkles in brief stories about other players and characters that add very little to overall story and go nowhere.
