Suspenseful, compelling, and utterly believable, The Bank of Fear is unparalleled spy fiction in the best tradition of Graham Greene and John le CarrE-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.

"The recording of The Bank of Fear narrated by George Guidall made a particular impression on author Ignatius. In particular, he notes the research into pronunciations and attention to detail. Lots of names and expressions were checked with the author. "Guidall takes the recording very seriously." The thriller takes place primarily in London and revolves around Arab financial interests and corruption. Ignatius says the voices of the characters must first come alive in the mind of the narrator and be then projected in the narration. While the author's process has much the same evolution, sometimes a very different interpretation of the work emerges from the narrator. Narration can open the door for a different experience, adding the performer's layer of artistry. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
