From Scarface to Miami Vice, Hollywood has created indelible images of Miami's criminal underworld. Yet beyond the lurid depictions exists a fascinating history of dramatic true-life crimes—tales of vigilante justice, family tragedies, politically motivated homicides and rampageous cross-country killers. And of course, the inevitable stories of celebrities behaving badly—as when Jim Morrison allegedly exposed himself during a 1969 Doors concert—along with accounts of celebrity murders, such as the shocking 1997 slaying of fashion designer Gianni Versace. Edgy and compulsively readable, Miami's Criminal Past presents the dark acts that have marred Florida's most alluring metropolis.
