Best Technothrillers Ever

List your all-time favorite technothrillers.
NOTE: Technothrillers are a hybrid genre, drawing subject matter generally from science fiction, thrillers, spy, action and war.

message 4: by Bo (new)

Bo Scott Help! I am looking for a book that I read in about 1987.
All of the world's computers crash, except those with the Apple/Macintosh operating system.
The book came out sometime after the "MacPlus" (my first computer).
I don't know the name; nor do I know the title.
Can anyone solve my query?
Thank you.
Miss Bo

William Blankinship I have a similar request. Around 1995 I read a novel and depopulating the world to save it. A group picked leading scientists and others to have the antidote for a virus that was engineered. Folks were tricked into taking a vaccine also. The heroes won and dumped the masterminds of the plot naked in the Amazon jungle. I do not remember the name or author. The was a V22 Osprey tiltrotor on the cover. This was while there were still in the testing phase in the real world.

HI William - AG Riddle has a similar book, it's the first in a series I think and intertwined with the Atlantis Gene series.

Enjoy!

message 7: by Red (new)

Red Hi there,
I'm looking for a novel similar to the show "Person of Interest" or AI. Female and male protagonists that are adversaries at the beginning but become allies (friends, lovers whatever). Preferably the characters should not be younger than 30, so no teens.^^

(Just read D. F. Jones Colossus anything in that direction would be fine)

In short:

AI thriller akin to POI (Person of Interest TV)

adversaries -> allies

characters (f/m) should no longer be teens

Thanks in advance for your help, hope someone has a recommendation for me.

Cheers :)

Hi Red, I just ran across your somewhat-old question and thought I'd throw my new book out there. It's titled All In and features two unlikely 30-something partners (a hacker and an NSA spook) who battle a super AI.
