Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

    "The story unfolds"

    Wow how this story unfolded. I simply love the way the authors played the roles that they were assigned. I didn't really know what to expect but at the end of the book all the scheming that was taking place was brought together very well and each individual family members roll. I didn't expect so much drama and I was waiting to see who the first person in the family business was going to die. This book has some of the best narrators that urban fiction has to offer I love Patricia Floyd and Ezra Knight voices very strong. I would recommend this book to other Carl Weber fans.

    Story
    "Family Meeting"

    WHY DON'T HE TALK ABOUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT, LIKE WHEN THE HELL HE WAS GOING TO F### THE PU###. HELL, THIS WAS OUR THIRD DATE AND HE HADN'T EVEN SMELLED THE THING.
    I know not how these books are not in the erotic section. Expect lots of sex and usually very good sex. I like Weber's writing, I always find his stuff to be entertaining. This is my sixth book by him and there has never been a dull moment in any of them. When this started out I thought it was a Black version of Dallas, it turned into a Black version of The Godfather. In my last review I said I would like him to get away from Jamaica Church. This stars a family that attends that church, but the church is not part of the story. His characters think and act the way real people do and I like that. There are also several twists and turns and surprises in this book.

    I did think it was funny, that someone in the family would say they needed to act fast and then they would have a family meeting. I know people like that. Dennis Lehane wrote a great book called The Given Day, which is a historical fiction book about Boston. I would like to see Weber write an historical fiction book about Queens.

    Multiple narrators and they are all great. This is a top notch production.

    Love books on tape! It's all about the narrators for me though. No matter how good the story, if the narrator doesn't cut it...

    "AWESOME TWIST - DON'T HESITATE TO BUY THIS BOOK!!!"

    I love how the book starts one way then ends another. I actually went back and listed to the beginning of the book again...it was so good. It's amazing how the authrs made the characters sound one way come to find out they are another way. (I don't want to give out any info. and ruin it for potential readers/listeners.) I'd give this ten stars!

    "Excellent"

    Wow! Fast paced and dynamic storyline. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this highly dysfunctional family. Not crazy about the gratuitous sex scenes, but the story kept my attention. Excited to read the next installment.

    "Tough Listen"

    The positive part of this book is the performance. I enjoyed all of the narrators. And there's a great twist in the story.

    However for me, it's difficult to listen when I don't like any of the characters in the book. They are really hateful, antisocial people. The youngest daughter doesn't seem believable at all. Very one dimensional. The family's mother is a bit redeeming. Overall, these are not people I wanted to get to know. I continued to listen, however as I wanted to learn whether what goes around would come around in this tale.

    Cannot recommend this one.

    "Excellent and it kept my attention!"
    If you could sum up The Family Business in three words, what would they be?

    First of all, I LOVED the performances, especially Ezra Knight! I love audiobooks that have different Narrators to play each Character... it keeps it interesting!
    The story was very good and the role each family member played made me want to learn more about each Character. If you like the action and drama to continue in each Chapter, you will find this book very interesting... like all Carl Weber books! :-)

    Story
    "Just OK"

    Overall the story had lots of twists and turns which was good. Some of the things that happened didn't really add up for me; London and Paris were a bit much for me. I couldn't believe London let her husband treat her the way he did; and I felt that there was something missing from the husbands story; what was with all the phone calls? And it didn't play well for me that Paris would go behind her father's word like she did. I thought it took away from the fathers roll.

    "OMG!!!!!"
    If you could sum up The Family Business in three words, what would they be?

    LORD HAVE MERCY


    What did you like best about this story?

    The bitter/sweet relationship of the siblings


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ezra, Patricia & Michael made this story feel ALIVE, felt as if i was looking at tv, you can feel the excitment, sorrow or pain of the characters they're speaking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    CAMERAS, ROLL, ACTION !!


    Any additional comments?

    I find myself looking for books under narrators just to see what else they're reading. MY OPINION!!! Money well spent. Can't wait for the follow-up, so get to writing.

    Story
    "Loved it!! Can't wait for the next in this series"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Family Business?

    When the "true" jobs of the characters are revealed.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Family Business and why?

    Of Course Paris. Wouldn't mind hearing more about Vegas, but I'm sure he will have his own story soon.


    Any additional comments?

    This is must have to any collection. Drama, suspense. Twists at the end. It's hard to pause the book. You'll want to finish it in one sitting.
