The new biotechnology thriller, WIRED has been taking readers by storm. In addition to quickly becoming the #1 bestselling technothriller, it has risen to as high as #67 among the millions of works of fiction offered by Amazon (including both physical books and eBooks).
WIRED's author, Douglas E. Richards, is a former genetic engineer and biotechnology executive who has written for National Geographic, the BBC, the Journal of Virology, and many others. Richards has also authored a series of widely acclaimed YA thrillers, and in 2010, in honor of this work, he was invited to be a "special guest" at the world-renowned San Diego Comic-Con International, along with such icons as Ray Bradbury and Stan Lee.
In WIRED, Kira Miller is a brilliant genetic engineer who discovers how to temporarily achieve savant-like capabilities in all areas of thought and creativity. But what if this transcendent level of intelligence brings with it a ruthless megalomania?
Former special-forces operative David Desh is reactivated for one last mission: to find Kira Miller, the enigmatic genius behind a bioterror plot that threatens millions. But when Desh learns that the bioterror plot is just the tip of the iceberg, he is thrust into a byzantine maze of deception and intrigue, and he becomes a key player in a deadly game he can't begin to understand. A game that is certain to have a dramatic impact on the future course of human history.
