Beneath the murmuring surf and rustling palms are less soothing sounds: Construction cranes, not flamingos. Concrete mixers pouring condos, not plastic buckets shaping sand castles. Sniper fire drowning out children’s laughter. Sniper fire? Miami’s sultry calm deceives. A guerrilla war rages, fueled by the city’s epochal growth.
