    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Robert Harris is a great writer and he is talented. The idea behind this book is just not that great...that's pretty much it.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Harris’s story?

    The story was just weak and really didn't have enough a foundation to carry it along. The fact that he was able to get so much out of a bland premise is a testament to his skill as a writer nonetheless.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rodska – was your favorite?

    Both Hoffman and Inspector LeClaire were my favorite characters as performed by Christian Rodska. He was amazing! His unique and diverse voicing for each character really helped to make this somewhat weak story, more tolerable. He gets 5 stars!


    Was The Fear Index worth the listening time?

    Sure. It was entertaining at some level and not a complete disappointment.
