Powerful, inspirational, and raw, Queen Pin is the story of Jemeker Thompson-Hairston, who ran one of the country's most profitable drug cartels in the 80s and 90s.
Of course Jemeker paid a heavy price for her involvement in the drug game. Learning from her sources of a federal investigation, Jemeker went on the run. For two years she saw her son only intermittently. Her love for him brought her back to LA, even though she knew she would be arrested. Jemeker served twelve years in federal prison, losing precious years of her son's life that can never be recaptured, plus her legitimate business and her drug money. But in prison she was touched by God. She saw the path of destruction she had sown and vowed to change her life and carry forth a positive message upon her release. Jemeker has done so.
In Queen Pin, written with New York Times bestselling author David Ritz and Geoff Martin, Jemeker has brought to life, in vivid and gripping detail, a story the likes of which has heretofore been told only as fiction
