It is now an all but dead genre due to its success. But all things that become popular are subjected to overkill in the greedy search to milk it for every buck possible. I found myself swamped by the amount of books being written and lost interest after a while. Surprisingly though, for all its success, very few of these techo-thriller were ever adapted to film. Tom Clancy's novels are an almost glaring example for bucking the trend though. The Hunt For The Red October is probably the best film of his novels that were adapted, with the others varying in quality, not to mention Jack Ryans!!
