Well, here's a tentative one (tentative because i haven't finished 
reading it yet):

Vernor Vinge, "The Peace War" (and i think "Marooned in Realtime" as 
well, that's next on my list)

The protagonist uses IA to beat the baddies (or not. Maybe i should say 
'fight the baddies').

Uses rather a poor concept of using scalp electrodes, rather than proper 
neural interfacing, but the idea's there.
