Alex Daoud , a native of Miami Beach, became a city commissioner in 1979 and then served three terms as mayor from 1985 to 1991, during the height of Miami's cocaine trade and Fidel Castro's infamous Mariel boatlift.
After a fall from grace, he penned his first book, a riveting best seller, titled Sins of South Beach, The True Story of Corruption, Violence, Murder and the Making of Miami Beach.
In Sins of South Beach, Daoud offers an honest and unabashed account of his life and career, and warns of the intoxicating nature of political power.
The autobiography focuses on Daoud’s contributions that propelled South Beach’s transformation from crime-ridden, slum-infested neighborhood into one of the world’s premier playgrounds.
Daoud is not bashful about the seedy underside that fueled his administration, falling into a self-destructive pattern of behavior that permeated his political and personal life.
