Publisher's Summary

Famed international man and number-one best-selling author Doug Casey - in collaboration with John Hunt - releases Drug Lord, book two of the High Ground Novels.

Charles Knight returns to the United States after seven years traveling the world. He embarks on two concurrent professions: one as a major investor in a small pharmaceutical company, and the other as the head of a black market drug-smuggling and distribution operation. Charles has to sort through the legal and illegal, moral and immoral, and right and wrong as he navigates the war on drugs and the crony pharmaceutical industry.

Meet Tristana Dubocher - CEO of Charles's company (Visioryme Pharmaceuticals) - and her sniveling husband, Donald, an FDA minion. Meet Seth Fowler of the DEA, whose criminality is exceeded only by his quest for power. Get to know Rainbow, a teenage girl living on the street who runs drugs for the Alphabet Men. Their careers in the drug world are forever altered when they meet Charles.

Most importantly, meet Naked Emperor, a street drug that doesn't cloud minds, but clears them. Naked Emperor prevents people from being able to lie to themselves. Anyone dependent on deception knows that this new drug will turn the world against them. Mobs of politicians, environmentalists, academics, televangelists, jihadists, journalists, central bankers, Deep State actors, and crony parasites join forces to wipe Naked Emperor off the face of the planet.

They all want him dead. But Charles Knight intends to start a revolution.

Best novel series of this generation.

Each one of these books are the best novel since Atlas Shrugged. Can't wait for Assassin to come out on Audible.

A fine thriller

After reading the 1st book I was hoping the 2nd book would be just as good. I was wrong. This book is better than the 1st book Charles Knight's character grows and becomes more real and believable.

Excellent book, I was on the edge of my seat

Fiction isn’t something I listen to often because I generally prefer to be learning something and sometimes feel like I’m wasting my time when listening to anything but non fiction. I didn’t feel like that was the case with this book or with book one in the series. I’ve never devoured audiobooks of this length so quickly. Both book 1 and 2 were equally great! If you’re interested in this book I’d definitely recommend starting with book one. Someone could listen to this book and not realize they’re missing anything but there was some character building in Speculator that will add to your enjoyment of this one.

A great libertarian adventure.

The story is captivating and the topic is pertinent to all freedom lovers. The narrator is superb and never gets in the way of the plot.

It’s fantastic.

This is one of those audiobooks that leaves you wanting to find a reason to drive or hideaway in your house to finish it. Then when it’s over, you are craving more.

A good dose of Naked Emperor

A brilliantly crafted novel that you can’t let it out of hand until you reach the end.
It combines an exciting storyline with philosophy, history and an interesting parallel between past, present and future evolution of state and its supporting financial system.
It is filled with so much substance and ideas that you can read it over again and still discover new things to think about.

Even Better Than The First!!!

Such a captivating story. The plot and the characters were even more interesting in this book than the last, like taking Ayn Rand's character Howard Rourke and injecting him as James Bond into a modern and blessedly shorter version of her book Atlas Shrugged.

I was at first a little skeptical of Doug Casey's interest at getting into fiction novels - but these guys have absolutely nailed it with the most entertaining fiction I've read in a long time. The content is SO relevant to solving the problems of the world today, I now recommend it to everyone I know. Very inspiring.

Loved It

Would you consider the audio edition of Drug Lord to be better than the print version?

I've only listened to the audio version and the narrator did a great job

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sabina because Doug has taught me to be a contrarian, it'd be too obvious to say Charles

What does John Pruden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I have slight dyslexia so John has enabled me to digest this book in a few days as opposed to a few weeks, I found him to be highly engaging and a pleasure to listen to.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

'Deboucher Eats Shit'

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the 3rd book, I wish all of Doug's books were available on Audible, also Doug if you happen to read this it would be great to see a new 'crisis investing' book
