[Book Review] The Family Business by Carl Weber


Darletha reviews THE FAMILY BUSINESS by Carl Weber with Eric Pete (Urban Books, 2012)

L.C. Duncan and his adult children operate one of the most successful luxury car dealerships in New York.  Ready to retire to Florida with his wife, L.C. names middle son, Orlando, his successor. Before Orlando can fully take the reigns a special delivery from Los Angeles is hijacked, igniting a feud between the Duncans and a west coast organization. Now each family member must utilize their specialized skills to protect Duncan Motors at all costs.  
The story is told in Weber's signature fashion from the alternating perspectives of L.C. and his children Orlando, Paris, London, Rio, and his son-in-law Harris. Out of all the siblings youngest daughter Paris reminds readers there is definitely more to this family business than meets the eye. Disloyalty and power moves will shake their relationships to the core and the shocking ending will have readers searching for the sequel, The Family Business 2

This fast-paced, suspenseful story has a street fiction feel designed to grab a reader’s attention until the end.  Although I figured out some of the plot twists early, those who like brazen characters, sex, action, and drama with will enjoy this book.
