Blending history, true crime, memoir, and popular culture homage, Hotel Scarface: Where Cocaine Cowboys Partied and Plotted to Control Miami by Roben Farzad tells a true story set in the middle of the murder and drug capital of America in the ‘70s and ‘80s. The decadent cocaine-fueled story of the Mutiny—the hotel which inspired the legendary film Scarface—features a cast of not just big- and small-time gangsters, the hotel staff, and bodyguards, but also some of the biggest political and celebrity names of the time. Farzad also hosts the weekly podcast Full Disclosure on NPR One and is a special correspondent on PBS NewsHour. Sponsored by the Friends of the Pohick Regional Library.
