This is a novel geared for adults but I read it in my early teens in the 70's. The story is set in a futuristic anti-utopia that probably seemed far distant back then, but I think we are there now, which might be why I cannot find it; maybe it is too ludicrous in the light of real world internet experience. Still I would like to re-read this book.
It has two simultaneous story lines that alternate every chapter. In one story line we follow this computer expert as he flees from...perhaps malicious government forces or annoyed corperations...I'm not sure. The other story line is the same computer guy who has apparently been caught and is being interveiwed by a a psychologist. They parry words and ideas as the psychologist gently tries to coax the Computer Guy into doing what he wants (sabotaging some corperate or government system I think), while the computer guy is trying to decide if he can really trust the psychologist. It is this exchange of ideas that I want to re-read now. I loved the adventure of his flight when I was 12, but thought the interview scenes were rather too intellectual at the time.
It is very suspenceful and then all ends happily ever after. Can you help me find this story?
