    Sold our souls for greed – made mistakes without learning – death clears our vision (reminding us that life has a time limit). These are some of things we encounter in Eating the Forbidden Fruit. This is an incredible piece of fiction which reads like an autobiography, and readers of both genres will love it. Roland Page has put together a gripping family/crime fiction that moved me to tears several times. As I read this novel I was struck with the thought ‘what makes me qualified to review this?’ I’ve never felt that about a book before, it caused me to sit back and contemplate on what I was reading. I am a middle-aged, white, suburban housewife from England. This is a story about a young black man living in the US, in a world I know nothing about. Then I saw it. We are the same. We live. We bleed. We die. Our blood runs through our veins making our hearts beat while supplying oxygen to our brains, so that we can – think, feel, love and hope. Whoever we are, wherever we live, we are the same. That is how thought-provoking I found this. This is a story about hope, and what defines a person. Is it the choices we make? Roland starts his life off not always making the right decisions, one day some of those choices come back to haunt him. This book begins and ends with a court case, what happens in-between those chapters are the steps that lead up to that courtroom. Like many things in life the pivotal catalyst of this event, is not one but many things. We all fall from grace now and again, but it’s how we get up and move forward that defines us. Without these struggles we might never appreciate the things we have. This message is highlighted in this marvelously gripping book. Two worlds collide when Roland joins St Louis Metropolitan Police department, a shady past of drugs that’s entwined with the love and fierce loyalty of his family and friends, and his dedication to justice and doing the right thing in the force. For me the underlying heartbeat of this novel, isn’t the troubled upbringing and crazy choice making, it is that having the love of a person that’s true and altruistic is stronger than the pull of the world, stronger than drugs, stronger than childhood ties and even stronger than habits. Without love everything is meaningless. My favorite line from the book is: Wherever Tracey laid her head was home to me. A close second is: I wasn’t a complete asshole, just a part-time one! Roland Page bravely reveals his thoughts to us in this touching and tenderly-open story. If you appreciate honest autobiographies, crime or family stories you are going to drink this up, enjoy the tale but then, if you’re like me, you might get to reflect on your own choices. Chick Lit Café highly recommends this wonderful, unique and riveting book, Eating the Forbidden Fruit by Roland Page. Don’t miss this electrifying family/crime novel!

    The year of 2020 has been so unpredictable we bear witness to many misfortunes in the entertainment, political, and economy. Paranoia has invaded the minds of the norm. However, the newly ordained author Roland Sato Page has counted his blessing with the tragedy. He recently released his life based novel “Eating the Forbidden Fruit” a thrilling journey of his past profession as a St. Louis law enforcement officer convicted of federal crimes because of his childhood affiliation. A tale of karma, confession, and redemption. Roland states, “I have Lupus so my anxiety is on volume ten. I thought it was the end of the world. My book release is going to take a hit because of the lack of in person promotional campaign. I invested money into a delayed strategy. Yet the opposite happened. I was being booked on podcasts, blogs, and national editorials as soon as the press release went out. People were so receptive of my story.” He suggests many readers relate to transparency, trial, and tribulation of life. “We all fall from grace at times sometimes more than once. “Eating the Forbidden Fruit” displays the woes many marriages and life encounter. I reveal complete transparency to the readers. It’s practically like putting on my police uniform and riding shotgun in my squad vehicle.” The book shows the unmentioned things people would not believe cops experience. Sin behind the badge. The St. Louis writer feels he is a humble man wishing to share his inspirational story filled with drama, humor, even true romance. He does not proclaim the title as an author for he feels he has to earn that honor. Roland's resume reads like an exciting roller coaster ride warranting of a series. A former cop to a famed tattooist stricken by Lupus thus resorting to the literary industry. Regardless of what he considers himself it is clearly visible he has a Midas touch when it comes to success. He is known as quite an outstanding entrepreneur in the Midwest region. He has gained national attention in every endeavor he has committed to. He is pleased to say during the pandemic he has completed two other novels for future release “Skin Deep'' (Tattoo Industry) and “Walking the Purple Road” (90 day hospital stay battling Lupus).

    Private detectives Matt Singer and Jamal Wade’s plan to sell real estate as a side business explodes into murder when their client is brutally slain in a house they’ve listed for sale. In their search to find the real killer, Matt and Jamal are trapped in a Chinese puzzle box of cover-ups and corruption that goes to the very top of the southern California beach town known as Paradise. Before this case comes to its shattering conclusion they will uncover a man’s crushed skull and shattered bones buried forty years ago ... the Mayor’s illegitimate son who threatens to destroy his father’s reputation ... a political assassination disguised as an accident .. and the most devastating discovery of all – that the truth is far closer to them than they’d thought possible.

    From the opening scene of Jack Polo’s intriguing mystery novel, Death in Paraíso, real estate agents and private detectives, Matt Singer and Jamal Wade are thrust into solving a dangerous mystery in a town where those in power are drenched in crime, greed, and corruption. Set in a small, quiet Southern California beach town, the novel begins with an event that rocks Paraíso del Mar. Abbey McDougal, a wealthy divorcee, is found dead in a mansion listed for sale by Matt and Jamal. As they begin solving the mystery, a second body is found. Uncovered in a construction site, this one is decades old. Despite their unfriendly relationship with the Chief of Police of the town and his minions, both detectives carefully work to uncover the mysteries. A risky and timely visit by Matt and shortly later, the death of the mayor takes the detectives closer to the truth. But solving the mystery will prove more dangerous than any of them had anticipated as they try to maneuver the town’s political class to reveal the truth. The friendship between Matt and Jamal is developed through their entertaining dialogue that is infused with humor. The detectives are likable down-to-earth characters who even though unaccustomed to high-level crime, the kind that shakes the political powers of the sleepy town, are willing to employ their ingenuity to do whatever it takes to uncover the facts of the cases, even if this means breaking a few rules. One mystery is soon followed by another which maintains the suspense of the plot. As the novel comes to a close, the mysteries intersect leading to a gripping final scene. In Death in Paraíso the mysteries are captivating, the characters are likable and authentic and the plot is amazing and appropriately paced. Death in Paraíso is a fascinating mystery novel that is both imaginative and engaging. With its well-developed characters and baffling mysteries, it is an amazing addition to Matt and Jamal’s mystery series. Death in Paraíso by Jack Polo is an exceptional work of fiction and highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Jack Polo writes from his beach hometown in Southern California. His Paraiso series combines his career as a real estate agent with his love for intrepid characters entangled in mysteries not in their choosing. Most of the books are based on a true event that happened to one or more of his clients. Jack is also an award-winning screenwriter whose fiction reads like a verbal camera – taking readers inside the minds and hearts of the people in his books. The result is a page-turner of the first order. A can’t-put-down thriller.

    In his amazing second novel, No Pit So Deep: The Cody Musket Story Book 2, author, James Nathaniel Miller, II takes a moment to reintroduce us to the Cody and Brandi Musket Story, then off we go on some harrowing adventures, not of their making. A remarkable story and read! Four years had passed since their late-night romantic wedding and now they were back in the thick-of-things. Their daughter, Knoxi, was kidnapped and her father Cody would put together the team to rescue her, hopefully with Brandi staying on the sidelines for her own safety. Well, you can guess how that worked out. Knoxi was just seven-years-old when thugs from a South American cartel kidnapped her in retaliation for the Musket’s worldwide fight against human trafficking. A secretly crafted off-the-hook shadow division of their Planned Childhood Foundation was led by Cody without Brandi’s knowledge to keep her at a safe distance. The code name was Rosa’s Cantina, its purpose was to combat child trafficking – to search, destroy, and rescue without no one expecting. They were making a difference and the leader of the cartel, Salvador Escundo, backed by powerful thugs noticed and planned to stop them. Cody hired an exceptional team of comrades in arms to snatch Knoxi from the hands of the children traffickers. Not knowing where they’d taken her brought a set of problems of its own. Cody’s only hope was Knoxi would find a way to use the code he’d given her to contact him directly. The mission to find and release Knoxi from the criminal sadists takes many harrowing twists and turns, ones you’ll want to read for yourself for firsthand knowledge of their nightmarish Amazon jungle experience with the cartel in hot pursuit. In No Pit So Deep Book 2, the skillfully developed characters come full circle, with some in the most extraordinary ways. Where we originally began the story with Cody leaving Brandi for a meeting in downtown Houston, will find its way back in the dramatic and extraordinary conclusion. Other excellent supporting characters such as Benito Santiago, played an important role and will take a leadership position in his country’s government. Miller’s outstanding fictional story based on true events brings our attention to a world-wide plague on society – human trafficking. This is an exceptionally well-written novel of hope, faith, and deliverance. Another 5 star novel written by exemplary writer and author, James Nathaniel Miller, II. No Pit So Deep: The Cody Musket Story Book 2 by James Nathaniel Miller, II is highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.
