The Fear Index by Robert Harris - $37.99
Dr Alexander Hoffman is a brilliant physicist, wealthy beyond his wildest dreams and married to the beautiful Gabby.
He runs his own hedge fund company and has been working on special software than will help his master the vagaries of the stock markets.
VIXAL-4 is an autonomous machine learning algorithm that operates by analysing the fear index - and will only become more sophisticated and effective as it analyses the data it collects.
Billionaires are queuing up to invest but Dr Hoffman’s in trouble. His life is starting to unravel and his friends and the police believe that he’s the one responsible. He’s not - so who is behind the mental torture?
A true thriller but one where the journey was more terrifying than the destination.
