Hotel Scarface: Where Cocaine Cowboys Partied and Plotted to Control Miami- by Roben Farzad is a 2017 Berkley publication. Miami Vice? Al Pacino’s Scarface? Miami in the 1980s, was all that and more. You'll have to keep reminding yourself that this is no work of fiction. While the entire country s...

Cocaine's a hell of a drug. Hotel Scarface tells the story of the rise and fall of The Mutiny, one of the hottest places to be in the 70s and 80s when Cocaine trafficking & dealing became an economy of its own. Naturally, it starts out with all of the excitement of obscene amounts of money f...

Thanks to Berkley Pub for the copy in exchange for my honest review! I'm a huge nonfiction fan. Especially if it's around true crime and drugs. It's always been intriguing to me how that whole lifestyle is/was - and HOTEL SCARFACE is about the 70's - 80's when everything was at it's peak. Drugs, s...

First, I have to say I thought this book was going to be fiction. I had no idea that this was a true story account of the late 70's and early 80's in Coconut Grove Florida. I didn't understand before I started reading that The Mutiny was a real place and that the characters in the book were real...

Miami Vice - The True Story! What an excellent read! Hotel Scarface is the story of the "Mutiny Club", a hotel/club/restaurant in Miami. It's set in the 1980's, running up to the present day. The Mutiny Club was the nucleus of the 80's cocaine scene, and of the "Cocaine Cowboys". Think "Miami Vic...

This is a Goodreads win review. I really loved this book. It is about the 70's in Miami and the true story of the Mutiny Hotel and the cocaine days. Cocaine was king in those days and the hotel was full of Hollywood stars, rock stars, models and everything was wild and free. Three Cuban immigrant...

Update: As a side note I’m actually incredibly put off by the number of reviewers who received this book for free in return for their “fair and honest” review. I think no matter who you are or what your reviewing offering free products for reviews taints the quality and/or validity of the review....

Thank you to Netgalley.com and Berkley Publishing Group for providing me an advanced copy for my review. Hotel Scarface is a well written novel chronicling the vast amount of characters during the Miami drug scene of the late 70s and 80s. Centered on the Mutiny Hotel, the author tells the stories...

3.5 stars In the late 1970s and 1980s the cocaine industry in Miami was booming. Movie stars, models, athletes, and even politicians flocked to the Mutiny, a club and hotel, where they could party alongside the drug kingpins. This book follows the rise and fall of the drug trade in Miami along wit...

Hotel Scarface was a fun and highly informative read. My history class never really got to the 1970s/ 1980s, and I certainly didn't know much (er, anything) about Miami. Farzad sets up the extravagant lives and actions of the cocaine cowboys with the backdrop of the Mutiny hotel and club. As the...
