I like technical thrillers, and finished two good ones recently: Jeffrey Deaver’s “The Blue Nowhere” and Ken Follett’s “Whiteout.” These two titles were suggest by a poster at The Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, and the books were just the thing I was in the mood to enjoy them.
“Blue Nowhere” focuses on computer hacking, and “Whiteout” focuses on bioterrorism. The books were written a few years ago and show some touches of age in the technology described, but it’s not too outdated to spoil the story.
I’ve read other books by the authors before and they’re good reads. Follett’s “Eye of the Needle” and Deaver’s “Garden of the Beasts” were also good reads.
I read “Garden of Beasts” and another book about pre-war Germany, but the author and title of that has slipped my memory. Both were good examples of books that look at murder, etc. within the stage of another great event. The two books reminded me of “Foyle’s War.”
Thriller fiction is one of my favorites, and I’ve long enjoyed reading Crichton and Tom Clancy. Now I have more choices for books I can’t put down until I find out what happens.
