The Forthcoming : Eating the Forbidden Fruit : Roland Sato Page : Release Date : March 30, 2020






Eating the Forbidden Fruit was long overdue since it was actually written during author Roland Page’s federal trial and detainment. The delay was because legal counsel advised him to wait for his statue limitation to be up. Eating the Forbidden Fruit is a gritty fiction novel loosely based on true events in author Roland Sato Page’s life. The newcomer author delivers a personal journey into his rise and demise as a St. Louis City Police Officer.

He takes the readers on a roller coaster ride of good ole family memories to the nightmarish reality of being a police officer indicted on federal drug charges. During his trial, he wrote memoirs as a testimonial of redemption. Roland’s case stems from the conflict of his childhood affiliation and his oath to uphold the law. What is certain is one can't run from sin for karma is much faster.
