Annotation: Drugs, disco, and debauchery: This is the wild true story of the Mutiny, the decadent hotel that embodied Miami's cocaine-fueled heyday--and inspired the legendary film Scarface.

In the seventies, coke hit Miami like a hurricane, and no place attracted dealers and dopers like the Mutiny. 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, while upstairs, marathon orgies raged in the elaborate fantasy suites. 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 an extraordinary work of investigative journalism, a portrait of a city high on excess and greed.
