Summary

When he graduates with his law degree, handsome and charismatic Langston Hudson is ready to hit the ground running as a lawyer with his family's firm, but a routine traffic stop during a night out with his friends quickly derails his plans and turns his world upside down.  Langston and his friends are arrested after officers find half a million dollars' worth of drugs in his car. When Jacqueline Hudson learns of her son's arrest, she immediately begins to build her case. She is one of the top lawyers in the country, with a reputation for being a shark in the courtrooms. She is confident that she will be able to get justice for her son - until she realizes that she will be going up against an old flame. She questions if this district attorney is allowing their personal history to interfere with the case at hand.  To complicate matters, Jacqueline discovers that her firm is being sued by a former secretary for sexual harassment and illegal termination. Her older son, Lamont, who is also a lawyer, has been using the law firm like a personal dating service for much too long, and his misbehavior might have finally caught up with him.  Desiree, Jacqueline's only daughter, is quite reserved compared to her siblings. She's the good girl who doesn't normally like to rock the boat, but in what could be considered the worst of all timing, she is falling for Perk. The problem is he's been an employee at the firm for so long that he's practically considered family.  Given the problems her brothers are facing, now is not the right time for Desiree to introduce more drama to the family, but she just can't seem to help herself. As if fighting for one son's freedom and fending off lawsuits against the other isn't enough pressure, Jacqueline is also in the middle of striking up a deal to run for governor. She knows how much is at stake if her family's drama spirals out of control, so she'll do everything within her power to keep it all together.

The year is 1978. The Duncan brothers and their tough-as-nails women have vanquished their rivals and taken their place as the leaders of Waycross, Georgia's criminal enterprises. However, their rise to power has not gone unnoticed, and the family is rocked when their mother, Miss Bettie, is kidnapped and her body is found in a swamp. No one knows who the killers are, but instead of drawing closer, the family is split when their grief-stricken leader, LC, is offered membership in the South's most powerful black organization, the Council. Membership has its privileges, but they do not include his brothers. LC packs up his growing family and moves to Atlanta to open his first car dealership. Unable to deal with their mother's death, Lou Duncan searches for her killers with the help of an unlikely ally - LC's ex-fiancée. Her presence may cost him his relationship with his brothers, but Lou is resigned to that fact because Donna's help is instrumental in finding Ms. Bettie's abductors. What he will soon learn is that his search for the truth will also lead him to discover a long-buried Duncan family secret.

In his typical jaw-dropping fashion, Carl Weber returns with part two of his New York Times best-selling Family Business series. He's brought along a friend in best-selling author Treasure Hernandez, and together they've added more drama and new family members to the world of the Duncans. By day they are upstanding citizens running one of New York's most respected car dealerships; but by night, they're criminals who control most of the East Coast drug traffic. No matter whether they're on their day or night jobs, one thing is true about the Duncans: there is never a dull moment to be found. Momma drama takes over the Duncan clan, as there is still uncertainty about who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one of his family's many rivals. It's his mother, and she may be his most formidable opponent to date, because she's making the family take sides. Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart?

Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he's on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies to become a one-woman man. The stage is set for what might be the wedding of the year, but quickly becomes the disaster of the year when Aaron is left at the altar without explanation. Now, during his own hour of need, Aaron turns to the bishop for help. Unfortunately, the line he asks T. K. to cross will force the bishop to choose between faith and friendship, or as he puts it, "between heaven and hell". As the investigation into Tia's disappearance continues, the two men are challenged in ways they never imagined.

Summary

Headlined by New York Times best-seller Carl Weber, three authors bring listeners tales of power, greed, and ambition set in some of the country's roughest neighborhoods.  "Sibling Rivalry" by Carl Weber: They say the parent's sins always fall into the children's laps. Twins Kayden and Jayden Vincent have walked in their father's kingpin shadow as two princes fighting for the same throne since they were children. Now, finally at the age where the transition is inevitable, it seems as if the twins are going head-to-head when it comes to everything around them. What they don't know is that the crown they are fighting for comes with its own burdens - like a past the kingpin forgot to tell them about. It's a past that, if not dealt with, will leave both men without an empire to inherit.  "Love Seldom, Trust Never" by Ty Marshall: While attending his estranged father's funeral, East is approached by the legendary Ricardo Wheeler, who offers him the opportunity of a lifetime. Wheeler takes the young man under his wing, but when Wheeler's son and heir-in-waiting becomes jealous, his excessive ambition and quest for power lead to betrayal. A treacherous war is set in motion that will force the powerful legend to choose between his two sons. Anything built on a lie will eventually crumble. When no one and nothing are what they seem, who can you trust?  "The Bag Is In" by Marlon P.S. White: Slow grinding for years, Greedy and GiGi are ready to step up their game, with a thirst to be Detroit's king and queen of the trap. The struggle is real, but the payoff will be major. After cashing out their middleman up front, the couple's hood dream tragically turns into a nightmare. The middleman is popped, and the infamous Mexican pipeline is broken. Greedy and GiGi devise a seemingly flawless plan to not only recoup their invested cash, but to link up with one of the most notorious cartels across the border. What seems like sunshine quickly turns to rain, however, and chaos erupts.
