Overview

Meet the Duncans, a prominent family from Jamaica, Queens. They may be known for their big house, fancy cars, and lavish lifestyle, but that doesn't make them immune from some over-the-top drama.

L.C. Duncan has run his successful car dealership in Jamaica, Queens for more than thirty years, but when the recession hits and the competition gets a little rough, some say it's time for him to retire. Palm trees and golf sound like fun, but L.C. still has a few tricks up his sleeve. Which one of his kids can he trust to run the family business?

Paris could give any supermodel a run for her money. When she walks in the room, all heads turn, but it's her anger issues and knack for getting into trouble that most people remember. She's much more dangerous than anyone gives her credit for—except, perhaps, her father.

Orlando is the most obvious choice to lead the Duncans into the future. He has proven himself to be quite the businessman over the years; but sometimes, the most obvious choice isn't always the best choice.

Harris Grant is married to L.C.'s oldest daughter. In Harris's opinion, he's the most qualified to run the family business. Now he just needs to convince L.C. . . . and make sure no one discovers the secret he's been keeping.

Harris isn't the only one with skeletons in the closet. The Duncan family has been keeping a secret of their own—a deep, dark secret that, if revealed, will shock the entire community.

    WOW!!! OMG!!! Part II

    I had this book pre ordered on my Nook and had been anticipationg its release date. From the moment I started reading I knew that this book was going to be another great read. This author never lets you down. I had to post another review, Because I love that Carl makes his characters so believable. When you sit back and read his books you can visualize and hear each character saying their lines. But as you read the narration you can tell that he is a highly educated individual. As long as he keeps writing I will keep reading.

    In one word.... AWESOME! Well worth every penny I spent. I kinda

    In one word.... AWESOME! Well worth every penny I spent. I kinda wish I would have waited until the sequel was released because I am too impatient. I want to know what happens in the end right now. This is the first project I have read from Eric Pete but I know that Carl Weber puts it down in his work. Good job to both authors, keep the Duncan's story alive- we have our own 'Sopranos' now!

    The Family Business!!!

    There is no business like family business and this book proves it!! This book was very good. There was supense at every twist and turn. Pulling you deeper and deeper into the lives of the Duncan family. But This book was also raw but had just enough class. I loved how the family's life was exposed layer by layer. This is a really good read!! So happy reading!
