Reseña del editor
A New York Times & USA Today Bestseller, and the #1 Kindle book of 2011 in two major categories -- technothrillers and science fiction. "Richards is a tremendous new talent." --Stephen Coonts, 17-time New York Times bestselling author of Pirate Alley "A keep-you-up-all-night thriller. Intense action, mind-blowing concepts, & breathtaking twists. Enjoy the ride." --Boyd Morrison, bestselling author of The Vault. 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 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. . . WIRED is a smart thriller crammed with breakneck action, unexpected twists, mind-expanding science, and intriguing concepts readers will be contemplating long after they've read the last page. "A twisty plot, big ideas, and nonstop action & intrigue. It'll have you guessing right up to the very end." --Ernest Lilley, founder, SFRevu, Sr. Editor, TechRevu. Be sure to read the WIRED sequel, AMPED, and Richards's newest novel, THE CURE.
Biografía del autor
Douglas E. Richards has been widely praised for his ability to weave action, suspense, and science into riveting novels that brilliantly straddle the thriller and science fiction genres. He is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of WIRED, its sequel, AMPED, THE CURE, and six critically acclaimed middle-grade adventures enjoyed by kids and adults alike. A former biotech executive, Richards earned a BS in microbiology from the Ohio State University, a master's degree in genetic engineering from the University of Wisconsin (where he engineered mutant viruses now named after him), and an MBA from the University of Chicago. In recognition of his work, Richards was selected to be a "special guest" at San Diego Comic-Con International, along with such icons as Stan Lee and Ray Bradbury. He has written numerous feature articles for the award-winning magazine, National Geographic KIDS -- some having appeared in a dozen languages in as many as sixteen countries -- as well as essays for the BBC, The Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Earth & Sky, Today's Parent, and many others. The author currently lives in San Diego, California, with his wife, two children, and two dogs. You can friend Richards on Facebook at Douglas E.

In particular, the author has some brilliant speculation about the effect of enhanced intelligence on human beings. I am not sure that I agree with the speculation, but I found it plausible and fascinating and it certainly made this novel a page turner. There is other speculation as well, but I do not want to engage in spoilers.
No science-fiction reader should miss this one. This is a dazzling novel that will hold the reader's interest throughout. RJB.
The plot was masterfully revealed, with just the right amount of uncertainty as to the identity and motives of the heroes and villains.
There is a terrific surprise at the end that was truly unexpected, but made perfect sense once revealed.
The ending is really good and very optimistic. There is a sequel, but this story is complete on its own.
