In Conversation: On People Die in Sunshine: A Novel of Miami

Authors:Stephanie Sayfie Aagaard, Gloria Nagy


“Money. Money. Money. Money.”

And so begins People Die in Sunshine, Gloria Nagy‘s fast-paced tale of greed, glamour, envy, and avarice in the aftermath of a vicious double homicide. Nagy’s cast of characters – wildly diverse in ethnicity, wealth, morality, and status – are by turn warm, entertaining, engaging, and comical, and as the murder investigation progresses, so too does the list of possible suspects. Speaking with Nagy is Stephanie Sayfie Aagaard, who has been chronicling Miami’s social set for more than 20 years in her Miami Herald column, “Steph Sez.”
