Publisher's Summary

Suspenseful, compelling, and utterly believable, The Bank of Fear is unparalleled spy fiction in the best tradition of Graham Greene and John le Carré—a twisting tale of the ruthless greed and money laundering behind today’s headlines. Behind the doors of a London investment firm lies a grisly five billion dollar secret that directly involves the Ruler of Iraq. When British financial investigator Sam Hoffman and Iraqi computer analyst Lina Alway decide to expose the secret, they are quickly caught in a deadly maze of deception and terror. Their only hope for survival is hiding in a global computer network of the Internet—but only if they’re smart enough to find it.

    "Outdated"

    Set in the early 90's, this isn't old enough to be historical, but old enough to make me impatient. ("...he was even known to take a cellular phone with him to the movies..."). Also, 95% of the books I've listened to that were narrated by George Guidall have been great, but once in a blue moon he reads in a sort of slower, prissy style, and this is one of those. Maybe I've been spoiled by more modern spy thrillers (such as the unsurpassable Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series). I might have loved it if I'd listened to it when it was new.

    "Good book, but the storyline is dated"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The premise of this book predates the 2nd Iraq war, and as such requires you to envision a very different outcome than actual historical events.
