Author Roland Roberts debunks this insightful, gripping and sensational story in the hopes of warning those who are prone to the shady scams, deceptions and fraudulent artistry of life’s most skilled tricksters.

There are very many layers to this work. Like an onion that needs to be peeled until it reveals its very last sheet, the elusive truth and core of this story can only be found at the latter pages. Nonetheless, in order for one to appreciate the pure craftsmanship and creative style of Roberts’ literary prose, one needs to submit to the gradual progression of this book’s shocking and insidious events. “GROWING UP FERRAGAMO” unveils the specious facets of a well-concocted scam that has almost, if it were not for sheer skepticism and clever analysis, cost a group of medical research organizations extreme financial loss.

With his alluring biography readers will eventually be enthralled into the utter vastness of his empire as they discover the immense business involvement of the Ferragamo clan. Little by little, like a heavy sheaths of clothing removed from one’s body, the fragments of obscurity vanishes, thus revealing an interesting plot, which involves the author’s artistic introduction of a seemingly-endearing character by the name Juliana Maria Boscelli.
