Recensioner i media

"The Fear Index could scarcely be more of the moment" The Times "Harris is a master of pace and entertainment, and The Fear Index is a thoroughly enjoyable book ... Read the book." Observer "The Fear Index is an escapist thriller to rank with the best of them, and as a guide to what hedge funds actually do, it is surprisingly clear and instructive." Economist "There are moments when this book feels so up to date it could have been written next week... spookily exciting." Express "I would recommend The Fear Index, the new novel by Robert Harris that delves into the world of modern finance. The writing is as elegant as ever" -- Lionel Barber Financial Times
