A True Story of Murder in Miami.

IN THE FAST LANE A True Story of Murder in Miami. She said the killers were two burglars. Or was it a drug hit? As Carol Soret Cope writes in "In the Fast Lane," Joyce Cohen was suspected almost from the beginning of being the mastermind of her husband's murder, and for two years the police doggedly pursued the case. She also describes the high life led by some of Miami's affluent residents and does a fine job of creating suspense in a case with few suspects.

Life in the Fast Lane is an interesting true crime story about Joyce Cohen and her husband's murder in Miami in 1986. Overall I enjoyed the book very much but I do wonder if she really committed the crime. I like to read a true crime book where it is clear-cut who the murderer is. I'm not really feeling that about this book, however I did find this book to be well-written and interesting and would recommend it to true crime readers. I am also interested in true crime that takes place in Miami. I have been there on a few occasions and I love the city. The author points out restaurants and shops that I would love to see. I was also interested in reading about the defense attorney, Alan Ross, and his background in becoming a lawyer and his ties to the University Miami Law School.

Interesting story of a rich Florida businessman who was shot several times in the head at his upscale home.

His glamorous wife said that she was in another part of the large home and saw two men run away.

A difficult case to put together for prosecution.

There was a lot going on behind the image of a happy and glamorous couple, especially with the wife.

I worked with Stan Cohen and his partner Marvin Sheldon of SAC Construction on several projects while I lived in Miami, so this story was of personal interest to me.

I love these true crime books especially when they hit close to home. I like to know what is living next door! :)

Paper back, do not like paper back books very much and because it is paper back, it has no dust cover. Would not recommend.

IN THE FAST LANE by Carol Soret Cope is a typical work of true crime. The story is that of the murder in Coconut Grove, FL, in March of 1986 of Stan Cohen and the involvement of his wife, Joyce. It is set up in the standard crime, investigation, and trial format. The story itself is reasonably interesting, though probably more so if you are from the Miami area.
It centers on a group of friends who are typical of a type of people one encountered in the 70s and 80s. These are the people many of you may remember who made sure they hung out and were seen at whatever were the trendiest places of the moment. The men are the stereotypical guys who wore the top two buttons on their shirts open to display a gold chain, often dangling a coke spoon, around a generally flabby neck. They squired around their wives and girlfriends who dressed classy-casual in the daytime, but who at night morphed into overdressed, vulgar appendages to the men while sporting garish jewelry and often-ridiculous fur coats.
These were nouveau riche devotees of excess, of tasteless conspicuous consumption, whom the book does not portray as ever having entertained any substantial thoughts other than those concerned with making money. But they did party a whole lot, partying which involved drinking to excess, drug use, and infidelity.

ITFL is a relatively easy if unspectacular read, and Cope is a relatively decent if unspectacular writer. I had several problems with the book. There is no real background material on anyone in the book other than Joyce McDillon Cohen, and while the information on Joyce is interesting and thorough, it is inexplicably presented on pages 312-330 of a 354-page book. This material would have added massively to the enjoyment of the book had it been provided early on. I read the whole book wondering what the woman was about.
The other failing of this book, as I perceive it, is a fault that seems to be the province of the women who write mediocre or worse true crime, overwrought melodramatic soap opera. No one in this book gets annoyed or irritated or angry. They are, rather, always "steaming" or "fuming", often in the same paragraph. At least Cope didn't describe anyone as "self-immolating" or "spontaneously combusting", but there's always next time.

Some other examples of the melodramatic as well of another gambit of weak true crime, the fabricated thought or quote: Prosecutor Kastrenakes "...turned the problem over in his mind, and for the thousandth time thought about Stanley Cohen. Sometimes he almost felt he could communicate with the dead man, the man whose life and death had been his preoccupation for nearly two years. `Stanley, damn it! We know she did it - and we're trying to prove it for you. But we just can't find the link. Help me Stanley! Give me something! Show me something!' Kastrenakes waited, feeling foolish. He didn't really believe the murdered man could somehow help him...."
It's fortunate for the citizens of Miami that Kastrenakes didn't really believe that Cohen could help him, but do you think any of this actually happened? Nah, me neither.

Is there filler? Sure. Does it often consist of things that, were they interesting, the author could not know. Sure: "'Well, son, tonight you just met your first international fugitive,' Stan told Shawn with a smirk. Well, Stan being dead and all by the time this book was written, Cope would have had to have gotten this information from Shawn, a teenage drug addict at time of the alleged quote. Did Shawn actually tell her this? Did he actually mention a smirk? I don't think so. Did she even interview Shawn? Well, Cope thanks a long list of people who helped here write the book. Shawn Cohen is not one of them.

Which brings me to another irritation, the international fugitive in question, one Frank Diaz, is mentioned occasionally throughout the book and at one point it is broadly hinted that he will somehow be involved with Cohen's murder. But that never materializes and I was left wondering, since he had no other role in the story, why he was being mentioned at all. Maybe Cope was just giving a shout-out to a friend.

There is considerably worse true crime out there, and ITFL would be okay to read on the beach or on a plane if it was all you had, but on the other hand there is no reason to go out of your way to read it. I'd give it 2.5 stars if I could, but I can't.

Carol Soret Cope does a pretty good job with this real-life murder story. Unlike some other ones I've read, such as those by Ann Rule, there's not much "suspense," but for the most part this is made up for by lots and lots of details; you won't put this book down feeling like it was a poorly researched rush job, like those "crime of the week" books that pop onto shelves immediately after something happens.
