Are multi-level marketers vampires? No, but two vampires founded a MLM empire! Tarocco is the family saga of two vampires, Remus and Roman Pezzano, as they build their direct sales empire in Detroit in the mid-20th century, selling a fountain of youth product called Tarocco Tonic. Not only is Tarocco Tonic marketed to health-conscious consumers, vampires can use it as a substitute for blood. The Pezzanos must fight the FTC, FDA, rogue distributors, and other vampires to save their business. Along the way, Remus, Roman, and their lively wives Maria and Florence show how to build a successful multi-level marketing enterprise and address critics who call their business a pyramid scheme. With a diverse cast of characters who reflect the many ethnic groups living in mid-century Detroit, the novel Tarocco paints a colorful picture of life in the Motor City when it was at the top if its game.
