Book   Description: By day, the Duncans are an   upstanding family who run a thriving car dealership in Queens. By night, they   live a dangerous secret life! Carl Weber and Eric Pete deliver a thrilling   underworld drama in The Family Business.L.C. Duncan, patriarch of the family,   is at the age when he’s starting to think about retirement in sunny Florida.   But the recession is taking a bite out of the business and, worrying more, he   has to decide which of his children should take over. When his workaholic son   Orlando gets the nod, Orlando’s siblings—including the favorite son Vegas,   conniving daughter London, glamorous party girl Paris and flamboyant   nightclub owner Rio—are up in arms. But so are the Zunigas, a rival family   whose fragile business alliance with the Duncans may explode at any   moment.When Vegas suddenly breaks away from the family, London’s lawyer   husband, Harris, makes a play for the company and all hell breaks loose.   Selling cars, it turns out, is only a small part of the Duncans’ family   business. Each member of the family has a secret expertise to reveal. And   now, under siege from the Mafia, Mexican drug cartels and the Zunigas, the   Duncans will have to stick together—or die separately!

BRT   Review Title: Edge of your   seat reading!
BRT   Review: I listened to the   audiobook version and let me say that I was not disappointed!   The back story revealing what the true family business is, and   what each family members part in the business is, was nothing short of   brilliant. The vivid descriptions and realism of the situations pulled me in   at every turn. Either these guys did some serious research to ensure the   “business” dynamics were realistic, or they’ve had a room with a   view to such operations previously to make this storyline work. The cut   throat tactics of the outside players, as well as within the family itself,   ensures the reader undrstands early on that these are not the Huxtables from   the Cosby Show or the Seaver’s from Family Ties. Each family member has their   own back story and the audio version definitely made certain that I felt like   I was listening to a movie playing on my television while I was in another room.   The newly ensued trouble that begins at the end gears you up for the   sequel…while you wait on the edge of your seat for it. Nothing short of   “Bravo” is worthy in reviewing this book. Great review   talk! But you be the judge.
