Description

At the nexus of high finance and sophisticated computer programming, a terrifying future may be unfolding even now. Dr. Alex Hoffmann’s name is carefully guarded from the general public, but within the secretive inner circles of the ultrarich, he is a legend. He has developed a revolutionary form of artificial intelligence that predicts movements in the financial markets with uncanny accuracy. His hedge fund, based in Geneva, makes billions. But one morning before dawn, a sinister intruder breaches the elaborate security of his lakeside mansion, and so begins a waking nightmare of paranoia and violence as Hoffmann attempts, with increasing desperation, to discover who is trying to destroy him. Fiendishly smart and suspenseful, The Fear Index gives us a searing glimpse into an all-too-recognizable world of greed and panic. It is a novel that forces us to confront the question of what it means to be human—and it is Robert Harris’s most spellbinding and audacious novel to date.

Customer Reviews

Fun for Finance Geeks

If you follow markets and the antics of venture capital and hedge funds, this is an entertaining tale. And it's interesting to think that the threat of the future won't come from the space world of HAL or the military world of Skynet, but from the financial world. There are points where it gets a little psycho-melodramatic, but all in all it was fun. Maybe it could even help those who don't read business sites that often understand a little more.
