Colorful but violent personalities roamed the streets of Miami in the late 1970s and early 1980s when cocaine came to town and drug lords helped make it the U.S. murder-capital. In “Hotel Scarface,” journalist Roben Farzad recounts the story of the Mutiny Hotel, a hot spot for money, sex and cocaine that became ground zero of Miami's coke culture. Farzad joins Jeffrey Brown for a conversation.
