New York, NY (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
The new biotechnology thriller, WIRED, promotionally priced at 99 cents at all major eBook retailers, 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 is a keep-you-up-all-night thriller," says bestselling author Boyd Morrison. "It's packed with intense action, mind-blowing concepts, and breathtaking twists. I was blown away!"
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.
"The response to WIRED has been more positive than I could have dared to imagine," says Richards. "I'm ecstatic. The power of strong word-of-mouth in today's connected world is truly astonishing."
"WIRED is fast paced, with a twisty plot, big ideas, and nonstop action and intrigue," adds Ernest Lilley, founder of SFRevu and Senior Editor of TechRevu. "It'll have you guessing right up to the very end."
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. . .
"WIRED is a brilliant concept," adds Morrison. "If you're looking for a slam-bang, keep-you-up-all-night thriller, crack open WIRED and enjoy the ride."
