Hotel Scarface Zusammenfassung

Hotel Scarface: Where Cocaine Cowboys Partied and Plotted to Control Miami Roben Farzad

Miami, December 31, 1979. Lock your doors. Watch your backs. Raise your glasses. Miami is about to blow, in a fiery explosion of cocaine, blood, bullets, torched cars, cash, immigrants, hustlers, dopers, informants, corruption, body bags and inner tubes.

In the seventies, 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.

Hotel Scarface Bewertungen

A raucous history of the cocaine boom. * New York Times *
Part biography of a hotel, part elegant true-crime thriller, this is the ideal read for a South Beach winter sun lounger. * GQ *
Hotel Scarface is a journey into the surreal. The book sizzles with exquisitely detailed reporting and a fast-paced narrative that thrusts the reader right into the middle of Miami's cocaine-fueled madness. We're all lucky that Farzad's deft story-telling captures one of the most outrageous moments in American history in such a vivid way. * Ashlee Vance, New York Times bestselling author *
Stay up all night partying with the narcos and rock stars of Roben Farzad's Hotel Scarface - you can check out anytime, but you can never plead. * Vanity Fair *
Thought I was reading a Carl Hiaasen novel. Then I realized it was NON-fiction. Hotel Scarface is to Miami what 'Narcos' is to Colombia. * Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, CNBC's Chief International Correspondent *
