The Hills of DC
Every Action Has a Consequence
Surviving the mean streets of Washington, DC during the Civil Rights era, Nathaniel McQueen-El was compelled to make hard choices at an early age. The premature deaths of his grandparents catapulted his family into financial crisis, and he turned to a life of crime. He hit bottom after the deaths of his mother and best friend, which sent him into a tailspin, using heroin and cocaine. It was then that he faced the horrors of adult prison life, confronting racism, violence, corruption and mismanagement. The Hills of DC isn’t just another memoir—it brings you face to face with characters who are real, whose crimes are a matter of public record. Its profound insight will enable you to clearly distinguish and preview what crime has in store. More importantly, this is a book about survival, endurance, hope, and the guidance of God in a life full of tragedy and mistakes. No matter what your background, you will be deeply affected by this vivid tale of love, betrayal, scandal, racism, politics—and ultimately, redemption.
