Carl Weber is known as the King of “Relationship” Drama but I have to say that his new series (The Family Business) has garnered him a new title…the King of “Crime” Drama. In part 3 of the series, Carl Weber has teamed up with Treasure Hernandez to craft a story where readers see Vegas in action after getting out of jail. He had no time to enjoy being with his family because he had to dive into action to neutralize a threat levied against the Duncan family by Brother Xavier.You see Brother Xavier is the leader of the Islamic Black Panther Party (IBPP) and the husband of Sonya, Junior Duncan’s girlfriend. While locked up in jail, Sonya told him that she doesn’t love him anymore and that she wanted a divorce. Brother Xavier wasn’t taking this lightly and once he paid off Sergeant Jefferson and Captain Nugent to break out of jail, he began to wage war not only on the man who took his wife but the entire Duncan family.
It was a roller coaster ride of action, twists and turns that will leave you surprised at the end. The characters were well developed and I really loved that the entire Duncan family played a part in protecting the clan. I can’t wait to dive into part 4 to see what happens to a few folks I didn’t trust in part 3.Fantastic read! Two thumps way up!
My favorite lines:
“Look, go home through the tunnel and let me figure out how to sneak you in here.”
“No, I’m on my way!” I was screaming at him now.
“Don’t.” It was Vegas’s voice on the phone now. ‘We need you to be smart, because if anything happened to you, Mom would not make it. Just give us an hour, that’s all. Plus, you need to get Sonya to the house so that she’s safe. We’ll figure something out.”
Where Orlando had sounded broken, Vegas sounded calm and in charge. I realized that he was talking sense. “Fine,” I said. We’ll go to the house, but if I don’t hear from you in an hour, know that I will be on my way.”
“Of course. You’re a Duncan. And, Junior, this isn’t your fault. This is the life we live, and it was only going to be a matter of time.”
I hung up, hoping that one day I would come to believe, like Vegas did, that I wasn’t to blame for all of this.
