Cocaine, the nouveau riche and the real Miami Vice make this real-life murder case a snapshot of the dark side of the southern city.
In the early morning of March 7, 1986, multi-millionaire Stan Cohen was shot three times in the head with his own gun as he slept in his mansion in the exclusive Coconut Grove section of Miami. His wife was downstairs sorting clothes for a charity drive.
The Cohens appeared to be living a fairytale life. But behind the facade there were cracks: she was addicted to cocaine and spending money faster than he could make it, and Stan had turned to an old flame for comfort. When she called the police to report the murder, saying only that she had seen "shadowy figures" run down the stairs, they were immediately suspicious. Why had the burglar alarm been turned off? Why was their protective Doberman Pinscher locked in a back room with her? The investigation was handled by the real Miami Vice, who played the part down to the Gucci loafers. And like the fictional detectives, they got their man, in this case Joyce Cohen.
MIDNIGHT IN MIAMI opens a window into the twisted, hungry world of the sunshine city in the mid-'80s, when greed was good, more was better, and life played second fiddle to the all-mighty dollar.
