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.

Almost as good as naked emporer

A few times it is a bit preachy on libertarian philosophy, probably necessary to get the uninitiated up to speed.

Intriguing plot well played. I definitely look forward to the rest of the series.

I really struggled... putting it down that is 😁
if you loved the last book you'll love this one. I really appreciated the dedication right at the end too.

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.
