Publisher's Summary

While most young people are just getting their footing in life, 24-year-old Bryshon "Boogie" Tolliver is already being groomed to be a boss by his father, Barry Tolliver. At first, he's not so sure he wants to take his father's place in the family business. He has dreams of being the most prominent chef in New York. However, things change when Barry is murdered in cold blood and everything he built is left at Boogie's feet. Gone are those chef dreams, replaced with a new resolve to prove himself worthy of upholding his father's legacy.

Boogie takes his rightful place at the table of the Five Families of New York and is quickly taken under the wing of Caesar, the head of the organization. Known as The Godfather's Godfather, Caesar shows Boogie what it takes to be a boss.

The deeper in Boogie gets, the more obsessed he becomes with finding his father's murderer. When all signs point to the person Boogie knows is untouchable, he'll do anything to even the score, even if it costs him his seat at the table.

Fell short

call Weber usually delivers, this one was disappointing. I tried hard to like it, it just did not work. The reader was pretty bad.

Good book

I am rarely disappointed by authors in the Carl Weber, fray, and this book stood up to my expectations. For a minute, I forgot this wasn't actually written by Carl, because I kept waiting for the Duncan's to appear. LOL. Good book. I'm going to have to get the next installment.

Great Story Overall

I loved this book and listened to it in one day. I was very annoyed with some of the info that was withheld to allow things to unfold how they did, but I understand this will be a multi-book story. Either way, it was great! I read it based on the Carl Weber backing but I'll be looking for more from C.N. Phillips.

I expected so much more

I purchased this one due to Carl Weber's name being attached. The narrator was HORRIBLE. I couldn't even get into the story because of that. I heard the whole story, but I didn't remember it simply because of the narrator.

Okay

The book was not what I expected. When you see Carl Weber, you think this is going to be good. This book was okay. I thought Boogie character was stupid. Over all I hope book 3 is better.
