Publisher's Summary

From one of the most daring voices in urban fiction comes a sexy new novel about a modern-day Foxy Brown who goes undercover in a dangerous quest for revenge.

Naeema "Queen" Cole takes care of herself. From the death of her parents when she was just eleven years old to when she found herself pregnant and alone at sixteen, Naeema has had to make her own way in the world. She gave up her son for adoption and became an apprentice at a barber shop, making just enough money to pay the bills and get high. She tried being a wife, but ultimately found that she and Tank, now her ex-husband, are better friends and occasional lovers than partners. Naeema prefers to be on her own; no responsibilities, no rules. But the sudden and brutal murder of Brandon, the son she never knew, forces Naeema to reconsider the way she has lived her life. Brandon was involved with a notorious band of Newark bank robbers, and Naeema is convinced his gang life was her fault. Desperate to avenge her son's death and determined to take justice into her own hands, Naeema becomes "Queen" as she infiltrates the gang to discover her boy's killer. But when she starts to fall for the leader of the crew, will she still have the resolve to do what must be done?

Filled with gritty realism and unexpected plot twists, this page-turner will keep you guessing as Naeema struggles to do whatever it takes to right her wrongs.

    Story
    "Something new from Meesha Mink"

    This book was a little different twist from what I am used to reading from this author. Very suspenseful and lots of drama and mystery. I didn't really care for the story though. The characters were strong and the plot was well defined. It took me a lil more time to get into this story and complete it because I felt as if the story dragged on and on. I like Meesha Mink and will continue to support her work, but this story just wasn't for me.

    "Captivating"

    Kept me on my toes. Amazingly written for a great visual. It left with sequel feel. I'm more than happy to purchase the next!

    "I really enjoyed this book!"

    I loved the relationship between Tank and Niema! I know the feeling of loving that person but having obstacles that prevent you from being with them. I even liked the relationship between Niema and Bash. I didn't want to like him but I did up until the end. I didn't understand Red's beef with Queen and of course the lack of a true ending bothers me!
