In chaotic times of pandemic and injustice, the masses seek a distraction from the hysteria. A newly ordained author Roland Sato Page, hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, has recently released his first novel titled Eating the Forbidden Fruit.

A dark fictional journey into his past career as a St. Louis police officer convicted of federal crimes due to his childhood affiliation. It is mere fate during current affairs where the flaws of law enforcement are being exposed that Roland’s book is available on Amazon. Eating the Forbidden Fruit narrates the unethical and temptations plaguing many police departments (Sin Behind the Badge). It’s a tale of karma, confession, and redemption.

Roland expresses his disdain of how sexism and racism have infiltrated the system set forth to protect the public. Every time he watches the media it open old wounds of his past. He stresses his situation wasn’t a case of police corruption just a case of loyalty to individuals he grew up with.

The book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotion. Eating the Forbidden Fruit is a thrilling fusion of drama, humor, and romance. An inspirational story many will be able to relate to.

The author is a strong advocate for Lupus Awareness as well as a Lupus warrior diagnosed 8 years ago.
