The 10 Best Science Thrillers Ever Written: Jon Land’s Picks

in Thrillers by

So my latest Caitlin Strong thriller, Strong to the Bone, is heavily based in science, particularly bio-engineering, after clinical trials for a groundbreaking anti-rejection drug go horribly wrong. That results in bad guys, really bad guys, ending up in possession of what could be the ultimate weapon. So I got to thinking about the genesis of thrillers at least reasonably grounded in scientific principals, and I came up with a list of books to which I can only hope Strong to the Bone, to be published on December 5, 2017 by Forge Books, will be compared favorably. The Andromeda Strain, Michael Crichton What can I say? This is the grandfather of the entire genre by the man who practically invented…

Most shows rarely make it that far, and if they do, the quality starts dropping significantly (I’m looking at you, Grey’s Anatomy). But Bones has tapped into something magical, growing with its audience and delivering quality crime-fighting episodes for years. Now it’s almost time to say goodbye: the 12 and final season airs on January 3, 2017. The show has come a long way, from the early days of chemistry-filled banter between Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) to their eventual marriage and the birth of their children. Along the way they’ve fought countless bad guys, solved countless crimes, and have…
