Travel back to a small Southern town where, before there was Duncan Motors, there were the Duncan brothers: Louis, aka Sweet Lou, a lover of ladies and life and a man you did not want to cross; Lawrence, aka Larry, a screw-up as attracted to trouble as it was to him; and Lavernius, better known as LC, the soft-spoken college boy who simply wanted to sell cars.
But the Duncan brothers weren't alone at the crossroads. There was also the mysterious and seductive Chippy, a woman who saw a way out of her circumstances and dared to take it. Witness what changed the course of their lives when ambitions intersected with opportunity that came calling one day in the form of a man named Alejandro Zuniga. Welcome to the familiar, but as you've never seen it before.
The full voice cast includes Alonso Riggs, Julian Durant, and Neicy Bethea.

Where it all begins
I really enjoyed this book. I love Carl Weber's mind and the way that he lets you get to know his characters. The narration of this book was wonderful, they had the right cast for this one. I loved the Family Business series and this book helps you get to know and respect who LC and Chippy are. This is a must read I would have never imagined Chippy's past being the way that it was. I am glad that these two found each other and were able to build an empire. This is the beginning, how it all started.
