Die Kanzlerin versteht die Welt nicht mehr: Plötzlich wird sie von allen Seiten bedrängt, Cannabis endlich zu legalisieren. Die Krankenkassen wollen damit Kosten für Medikamente sparen, Bauern und Wirtschaft wittern ein Milliardengeschäft, selbst die Kirche fordert eine Freigabe. Als die Kanzlerin die Legalisierung fürs nächste Jahr andeutet, beginnt in der Republik ein grüner Goldrausch. Die Gier macht aus Drogengegnern enthusiastische Cannabis-Befürworter. Nur der Dude ist deprimiert. Er sitzt im Gefängnis, weil er einst das beste Gras der Republik hergestellt hat - leider illegal. Frustriert sieht er, wie sich vor allem der Chemiegigant Meduk und der Energydrink-Hersteller Black Devil mit ihren Cannabis-Produkten in Stellung bringen. Und auch die Motive der Kanzlerin scheinen nicht ganz selbstlos. Schnell wird klar: Das Rennen macht, wer den besten Stoff anbietet. Plötzlich kämpfen alle um sein legendäres Gras - und der Dude wird zum Spielball im großen Cannabis-Krimi. ´´Legal High´´ ist eine beißende Gesellschaftssatire über die Gier und Doppelmoral auf unseren Fluren der Macht - lustig, spannend und erschreckend realistisch.

It´s America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages.

Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake.

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Weekenders comes a delightful new audiobook about new love, old secrets, and the kind of friendship that transcends generations. When 99-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons attorney Brooke Trappnell to her 20,000-acre barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never actually met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter, but why enlist Brooke and not the prestigious Atlanta law firm she has used for years? Brooke travels to Shellhaven and meets the cagey Josephine, whose home is a crumbling pink mansion at the edge of the turquoise sea. Over the course of a few meetings, Josephine spins a tale of old friendships, dark secrets, betrayal, and a long-unsolved murder. She is hiring Brooke for two reasons: first, to protect her island from those who would despoil her land, and second, to help her make amends with the heirs of the women who were her closest friends, the girls of the High Tide Club - so named because of their youthful skinny-dipping escapades - Millie, Ruth, and Varina. To fulfill a dying woman’s wishes, Brooke must find Josephine’s friends’ descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who’ve actually never met. But in doing so, Brooke unleashes the makings of a scandal that could make someone rich beyond their wildest dreams...or cause them to be in the crosshairs of a murderer.... The High Tide Club is Mary Kay Andrews at her Queen-of-the-Beach-Books best, a story shrouded in mystery, Spanish moss, verandah cocktails, 1940s dinner dances, love lost, and possibly...love found. 1.
