Meet Alex Hoffmann: among the secretive inner circle of the ultra-rich, he is something of a legend. Based in Geneva, he has developed a revolutionary system that has the power to manipulate financial markets. Generating billions of dollars, it is a system that thrives on panic - and feeds on fear.

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 *
