Overview

Famed international man and #1 bestselling author Doug Casey--in collaboration with John Hunt--releases DRUG LORD, Book 2 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, tele-evangelists, 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.


"Drug Lord--it's Ayn Rand with guns and drugs! But that doesn't do John Hunt and Doug Casey justice. They've written a thriller that's whatever the opposite of 'escapism' is. Call it 'right-here-and-right-now-ism.' It's an adventure in rationalism with a heartening lesson. Reason is not only the source of liberty, it's the source of virtue."
-- P.J. O'Rourke, Editor, American Consequences magazine and author of How The Hell Did This Happen? The Presidential Campaign of 2016

"Drug Lord is as equally entertaining as it is edifying. I read it over the course of three days and was totally absorbed. Knight's adventures were much more fun than my usual day-to-day, to say the least."
--Ross Ulbricht

"Through a cleverly crafted plot, Hunt and Casey sound the alarm on paternalistic laws, over-legislation, and the growing police state. The story reads like historical nonfiction as government officials morally justify evil acts for a perceived greater good, letting the reader ponder serious philosophical issues while enjoying a thoroughly good yarn."
--Jeffrey James Higgins, retired DEA supervisory special agent

"Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged was the novel that sparked a free market revolution in the 20th century. Drug Lord could be the novel that ignites that spark into an inferno in the 21st century."
--Jeff Berwick, The Dollar Vigilante

"Drug Lord should come with a warning sticker: CAUTION, THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE."
--Paul Rosenberg, author of The Breaking Dawn and Free-Man's Perspective

"Drug Lord's intrepid hero, Charles Knight, is engaging and enlightening."
--Barry Reid, author of The Paper Trip

"Casey and Hunt manage to entertain and inform at the same time. Drug Lord is another stylishly written paean to free markets and free minds."
--Jo Ann Skousen, Professor, Chapman University

"Who is Charles Knight--iconoclast, speculator, drug lord? Intelligent, principled, and fearless--this guy is a total badass. Drug Lord is Chicken Soup for the Ancap Soul."
--Albert Lu, CEO, Sprott US Media and host of The Power & Market Report

"Charles Knight hits his stride, stepping on from his smashing role in Speculator, to gather steam in Drug Lord. Speculator was great and successful, but Drug Lord is possibly better: it's different; it's smoother, and Charles Knight is smarter now. The dialogue and settings teach life lessons."
--Bo Keeley, executive hobo, racquetball champion, global vagabond, and prolific author
