9780099594314: Gridiron

Los Angeles, 1988 Ray Richardson, a brilliant architechnologist, has created a dazzling new building: 'The Gridiron', in the heart of L. A. The Gridiron represents the state-of-the-art in smart buildings: every aspect of the building, from temperature control to security, is controlled by an intricate computer system. On the eve of the building's official opening, a team gathers to put the finishing touches to Ray's new masterpiece. But there are a couple of unexplained deaths, which the team at first puts down to saboteurs. It is only when they discover how bizarre these deaths are that they realise the building - through its computer - is controlling them, and is set to destroy its creators.

Review:

In the heart of a huge, beautiful new office building in downtown Los Angeles, something has gone totally, frighteningly wrong. The Yu Corporation Building, hailed as a monument to human genius, is quietly snuffing out employees it doesn't like. The brain of the building can't be outsmarted or unplugged -- if the people inside are to survive, they'll have to be very, very lucky.

From the Inside Flap:

Welcome to the most ingenious building ever designed. Now try to get out alive... In downtown Los Angeles it stands as a monument to man's genius--a glittering, high-tech office tower that washes its own windows, purifies its own air, and even knows which of its employees is using drugs. But now, the building known as the Gridiron has turned malevolent. And its first victim is about to die. From its hardware-jammed computer room on the fourth floor to the 300-foot-high tree that rises in tis atrium, the Gridiron for the men and women trapped inside, there is only one way out: through the raw, human will to survive.
