Description

U.S. defense intelligence operative Kate Molares is investigating a suspicious international money trail.  

Her instincts place her at the center of a plot involving a terrifying new kind of terrorism—financial terrorism— perpetrated by a suave, handsome Middle Eastern hedge fund mogul.   His goal is to wreck the West by bringing the global economy to its knees.

Kate's mission takes her from the defense intelligence command center on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. to the oil-fueled economy of Caracas, Venezuela; from the Beaux-Arts buildings of Old Havana in Cuba to a hedge fund king’s magnificent back-country estate in Greenwich, Connecticut; from the United Nations to the site of a deadly Islamic conspiracy in the Iberian Peninsula.

Kate is in a race against time to fit together the pieces of this global puzzle…or risk the catastrophic destruction of the world’s financial markets.

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 28, 2011 – International investment banker Narea brings 20 years of financial experience to his less than successful debut, a near-future thriller that plays off current anxieties about technology gone wrong and the vulnerabilities of Wall Street. At the Defense Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C., 30-year-old analyst Kate Molares uncovers key pieces of information that hint at a vast conspiracy against America and the West. In Europe, Nebibi Hasehm, a charismatic financier born in Milan to immigrant Egyptian parents, plots to bring down the U.S. through its corrupt and overextended financial system. Hasehm orchestrates a diverse anti-U.S. alliance, which includes traditional foes like Cuba and more recent adversaries like Venezuela and al-Qaedaesque Muslim extremists. Weapons at his disposal range from dirty bombs to a serum that enhances the fervor of the men set to carry out his evil schemes. Though Hasehm comes across as more than a cardboard villain, the other elements of this predictable effort never rise above cliché.

Customer Reviews

A must read

We read fiction for entertainment and on that count this book is a blockbuster - absolutely unputdownable. However this book leaves behind a certain impression that the security we take for granted is not that infallible after all! I hope people in the top echelons of power - political as well as financial - read and learn from such works. A must read in my opinion.

Good start but frustrating ending

I liked the book but the ending was disappointing left me dissatisfied

Great!

The Fund is a wonderful read... It's a quick, enjoyable narrative with strong characters and an ending that is frightening in its realism. If you like the Bond or Bourne books, I'd highly recommend it.
