The Family Business by Carl Weber and Eric Pete

Title: The Family Business

Author: Carl Weber and Eric Pete

Rating: 3

Headline: Too Many Unanswered Questions

I do not know where to begin with this review. The Family Business is about the Duncan’s who seem to be an upstanding family with a legitimate business. Carl Weber and Eric Pete decide to turn this into a gangsta book which is uncharted territory for Weber. This book has more questions than answers.

There is no character development in The Family Business as we do not even know why the older brother is out of the picture and what was his role leading up to his disappearance. The first chapter, especially Trevor’s storyline, has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the book. This is just the tip of the iceberg of the questions as there were not any details about the mother’s illness, and there was no sense of reality that Rio would have received such great hospitality while in California, and to top it off, there’s a socialite who is really an assassin.

I am only giving this book 3 stars based on the reputation of Weber’s previous works but he really missed the mark with The Family Business.
