Publisher's Summary

Charles Knight is released from an especially unpleasant stay in prison, only to rejoin a society overwhelmed by looting, riots, arson, viral panic, mob-think, and economic decay...with a presidential election in the balance. The cronies are in charge, abetted by their media lackeys and political puppets. They’ll do anything to get what they want. How can Charles stop the deadly crimes - crimes that push millions into poverty, servitude, and ignorance - committed by those who control the law, print the money, and confuse the minds of the people? Will a highly unorthodox presidential candidate and a cryptocurrency network that turns the surveillance state on its head be enough to expose and defeat them? Or do some people just need to be killed? 

The cronies are moving fast. Charles Knight needs to move faster.

Another great book in this series.

Can't wait for the next book. I wish there was a real Paladin network. Maybe things in the real world would be a lot better. Fantastic series. I highly recommend it to everyone. Start at Speculator the first book and go from there. You won't be disappointed.

To real to be non-fiction

What a riveting story. Charles Knight is the hero we would all like to have on out side. The P-net is needed in our society today. To hold people accountable for their miss deeds. I can just imagine how a blockchain like P-net would put the fear of God into the crooked politicians. I think it’s a doable project and someone should put it into action.

Thriller!

Loads of wisdom heaped between the lines. I hoped for closure though I’m consulted by the implication of yet another adventure brewing in the saga of virtue over corruption.

Very well written, hard to put down!

Great story, hard to put down. It also seems to be quite plausible given all that is currently going on politically in our country and around the world!

Loved seeing Charles & Rainbow's depth grow.

I love the whole High Ground series but this book knocks it out of the park. The timely nature of the story is also a treat.

Such a great idea in the book.

Great book. Defense of self-defense against the creeps and the central banks. If people woke up to what central banks allowed to control the only allowed medium of exchange, world would change for the better.

What a treat! 👏👏👏

I absolutely loved the first 2 books of the trilogy and Assassin, sure is a ‘killer’ too! Definitely a must read, especially at these times!

Besides being fantastic thrillers, what I enjoy the most is the authors' ability to put very ‘complex thoughts’ and sometimes what could be -unfortunately- consider taboos, in such a clear and thought provoking way that makes you start to question all your own long-held beliefs… it’s a real treat to the intellect! I’ve recommended the trilogy to a lot of friends and family members, especially to those deeply entrenched in their own immutable world views and to the more curious ones too.

If you're looking not only for a great entertaining book, but also for a truly thought-provoking one, do yourself a favour and get the book now, you will love it too! However, if you haven't read the first 2 books, I'd highly recommend starting from the book 1 of the series: Speculator.

Well done gentlemen! I am extremely grateful to Doug Casey, John Hunt, John Pruden, their producers and Audible for taking the time to give humanity such a gift! 👏 THANK YOU!
