Book: Sins of Miami

The True Story of Corruption, Violence, Murder and the Making of Miami Beach

A riveting, harrowing, engrossing book on the inner working, battles and forces that shaped Miami Beach in the turning point of its history. While the rest of the world reeled from the worldwide recession of 1980, Miami was booming from a vice --the $77 billion cocaine industry. Learn first-hand from three-time mayor Alex Daoud of the power wielded by the Cocaine Cowboys.  This is a nonfiction, political thriller about corruption and the fight to preserve order amidst a city glittering in fast sports cars, fashion icons and neon lights.
