The statements and events in the life story of Derrick Gregory James Sr. were recently spoken of by him to several individuals who had come together to write this biography as a whole. Not until now had Derrick Gregory James revealed to these close individuals what he had denied for eighteen years to society, which was the truth of who he really is and had become!
This biography is one of absolute truth, sheer amazement, utter excitement, and one that shines a spotlight upon a man who became somewhat of a legendary folk hero, eventually given the name Spiderman by Florida’s law enforcement authorities and the media. This name was given to Derrick Gregory James due to his ability to climb high-rise condominium buildings, unmasked, for years on end without being detected, stealing millions of dollars in jewels from the rich and wealthy whom he had come to resent over time.
Not only is this biography one of truth, sheer amazement, and utter excitement, it also touches deeply on love, life, money, family, childhood, drugs, prostitution, murder, betrayal, race, cars, homes, condominiums, women, sex, jewelry, robbery, theft, pregnancy, resentfulness, anger, sadness, right and wrong, gambling, burglaries, clubbing, football, high school, social strife and strain, prison, regretful relationships, judicial injustice and cover-ups, generosity, compassion, joy and pain, loyalty, spiritual belief and conviction, and especially prophecy and God, all wrapped up in one.
