Nice read

I thought the book was good overall. I love the stock market and the story had alot of stock market and securities examples that were really dead on.

Interesting because current issue in society.....

Really a sifi "story" because the author was "carried away" with the idea and gave the computer a "vendetta" persona .... Helpful insight to what goes on in the real world of high stakes finance.....

    The story is well told with the exception of the biggest part. We are to believe that computer have taken over after the main character begins having a very strange day and murders a man who he supposedly hired to attack him. We are never told in any credible fashion how this alternate computer universe came into being. Suggestions are made, but they do not support the conclusion. A variety of clandestine events had taken place, yet who put them into action? No credible answer is given. My vote is 3 1/2 stars, rounded up to 4. My computer gives it 5 stars!

    Page turner

    Intoxicating mixture of science, technology, greed, and the psychology of fear. I couldn't put it down.

    Highly Recommend

    Hooked from page one, I never once lost interest in the Fear Index. The perfect algorithm of money, murder and mystery resulted in a marvelous read.
