Doug Casey & John Hunt’s High Ground Novels
The High Ground Novels are the latest releases from Doug Casey and John Hunt. The two authors joined forces, combining their unique skills and backgrounds to write a series that is as much about free market principles and philosophy as it is adventure.
About the Series
The first three books in the High Ground series have already been published: Speculator; Drug Lord; Assassin.
In the first, Speculator, we follow Charles Knight as a young man traveling to West Africa to pursue mining and speculation opportunities. His aim is to strike it rich, but everyone around him wants him dead. Charles faces a psychopathic rebel leader, a team of mercenaries and the US government while he navigates the complex world of African politics.
The second book, Drug Lord, sees Charles return to the US to begin a career as both an investor in pharmaceuticals and the head of a drug smuggling operation. He has a new street drug — and he’s going to use it to start a revolution.
In Assassin, book 3, the US is in the throes of recession, violence and elections. There are people committing horrible crimes, but they control the politicians and the currency. They’re above the law, but not beyond justice.
