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?

David Desh left the special forces after his team was brutally butchered in Iran. Now he has been reactivated for one last mission: find Kira Miller, the enigmatic genius behind a bioterror plot that threatens millions. But when Desh learns that the 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.

WIRED is a smart thriller crammed with breakneck action, mind-expanding science, and intriguing concepts that listeners will be contemplating long after they’ve heard the last sentence.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Victor Tatarskii | 1/30/2014

    " Here is your ideal fast food techno thriller: easy and enjoyable to read, shallow, with 2d characters and the most stupid villain on mind-enhancing drugs you'll ever see. Also: fantasy molecular biology. But still I'll give it 3 stars, and maybe even would read the sequel, when I feel like I need morning subway reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mitzi | 1/29/2014

    " Luckily I had never seen this cheesy cover since I read this as an e-book. Definitely entertaining and I liked the concept, the writing and 2-D characters not so much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Heidi Harvey | 1/24/2014

    " This book was awesome! Loved it from the minute I opened it. It makes you think about all the untapped capabilities of the human mind. Can't wait to read the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Agam Dua | 1/13/2014

    " I bought it for a dollar, would've paid three. Surprisingly pacy, enough twists to give you great value for money if all you're looking for is a quick side read. "
