"Waiting on" Wednesday {21}: The Fear Index by Robert Harris

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a super meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine


I haven't done this one in a while but I figured today is a good day to do it! Just saw this book randomly on a FB advertisement of all places. And I'm definitely intrigued! Check it out!

At the nexus of high finance and sophisticated computer programming, a terrifying future may be unfolding even now.

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 as Hoffmann attempts, with increasing desperation, to discover who is trying to destroy him.

Um, hell yes? Can't wait for this one.

Do you guys read books like these? What books are you looking forward to?
