The Duncan’s name carry a lot of weight. As a respected businessman, L.C. has been able to build up his empire and with six grown children, now is the perfect time for him to step down. Or at least that’s what his children believe. Somewhere the Duncan’s have become vulnerable and ripe for the picking. As the patriarch of the family, it’s L.C.’s job to locate that threat and eliminate it before it can cause any destruction to his family.

Orlando is now the head of the Duncan family. While he wasn’t the family’s obvious choice, Vegas, is indisposed and until his return, Orlando is the one in charge. Or is he? Soon Orlando realizes that his life needs to be all family all the time. Is he truly prepared for what being a leader in the Duncan family entails?

Secrets have a way of unfolding and catching you in a hornet’s nest. For Harris, L.C.’s right hand man and son-in-law, he finds himself having to make a very difficult decision. Either way, he could be jeopardizing more than just business. Can he find a happy medium for everyone?

When business gets messy, the Duncan’s have to figure out a plan to hash out details with an old acquaintance. As suspicion and doubt are cast, it’s time for the Duncan’s to prove that they have what it takes to maintain. Are they willing to unite as a family in order to do so?

“The Family Business” by Carl Weber and Eric Pete had the potential to be so much more! I mean you could literally see the potential in flashes and you wanted to reach in the book and yank it out, but with so much stacked against it, the book was destined to fail. There is no true introduction to the characters. You’re thrown into a story that transforms into a different story. So much is being said, but nothing is being explained. The timeline is muddled. The characters are contradicting. And after each page I found that I was asking myself ‘why?’ “The Family Business” was not concluded in this episode and readers will have to return to see what happens next.
