    This book is about the story of the Mutiny in Coconut Grove, the exclusive club and hotel that much of the crazy decadence and violence of the cocaine cowboy times behind the movie SCARFACE (1983) sprung from that is so memorable.

This book, about not just cocaine dealing in late 70s - early 80s Florida but more about Cuba's Mariel boatlift and its operation Pedro P...
