New York, NY (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Former genetic engineer and biotech executive, Douglas E. Richards, has gone back to his roots with WIRED, a new thriller combining pulse-pounding action, mind-blowing science, and intriguing concepts that readers will be contemplating long after they've read the last page.
"If you're looking for a slam-bang, keep-you-up-all-night thriller, crack open WIRED and enjoy the ride," says bestselling thriller author Boyd Morrison. "This adventure is crammed with intense action, mind-blowing concepts, and breathtaking twists."
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. . .
Author Douglas E. Richards has written for National Geographic, The Journal of Virology, the BBC, and many others. In honor of his work, Richards was invited to San Diego Comic-Con International in 2010, along with such icons as Stan Lee and Ray Bradbury, as a "special guest," where he signed books and presented on the art of writing can't-put-down thrillers. "My mission with WIRED was to write an intelligent, mainstream thriller that would keep readers racing through the pages," says Richards, "but also one containing thought-provoking concepts that readers would long remember. I couldn't be happier with how the book turned out."
For a limited time, WIRED is being offered by all major eBook retailers for the introductory price of only $.99.
"WIRED is a brilliant concept," adds Boyd Morrison. "I was blown away."
