Summary
Dr. Alex Hoffmann is a legend. A physicist once employed on the Large Hadron Collider, he now uses a revolutionary and highly secret system of computer algorithms to trade on the world's financial markets. None of his rivals is sure how he does it, but somehow Hoffmann's hedge fund -- built around the standard measure of market volatility: the VIX or "Fear Index" -- generates astonishing returns for his investors. But what if the algorithm is more like a mind than a computer? What if it could connive as well as place bets on Wall Street? What if it could worm its way into the records of Hoffmann's hidden past and use it to destroy him?
