Our May Top Pick in Audio is The Fear Index by Robert Harris, which takes place on just one day—May 6, 2010, the day of the market “flash crash.”
Dr. Alex Hoffman makes billions of dollars off his genius computer program that predicts movements in the financial markets. During the wee hours of May 6, an intruder breaches his elaborate security measures, leading to paranoia, fear and “a whirlwind of mayhem, financial and physical.”
You can listen to an excerpt from the audiobook in our audio column. Check out the trailer from Doubleday:
