Launched in July of 2011, the riveting biotech thriller, WIRED, quickly became a runaway New York Times and USA Today bestseller. And in 2012, when Amazon published its list of the bestselling Kindle books of 2011, WIRED was #1 in two major categories: technothrillers and science fiction -- an unprecedented achievement. Now, to mark the launch of the highly-anticipated sequel, AMPED, the eBook version of WIRED is being discounted to 99 cents at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
WIRED's author, Douglas E. Richards, is a former biotechnology executive who has written for the Journal of Virology, National Geographic, the BBC, and many others. In the book, Kira Miller is a brilliant but enigmatic genetic engineer who discovers how to temporarily achieve savant-like capabilities in all areas of thought and creativity. But she is also behind a bioterror plot that threatens millions. When ex-special forces operative David Desh is sent to capture her, he quickly learns that the bioterror plot is just the tip of the iceberg, and he is thrust into a byzantine maze of deception and intrigue. Soon, Desh 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 has a twisty plot, big ideas, and nonstop action and intrigue," says Ernest Lilley, founder of SFRevu and Senior Editor of TechRevu. "It'll have you guessing right up to the very end."
WIRED is now available for 99 cents at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. To learn more about Richards and his work, visit his website (douglaserichards.com) or Friend him on Facebook at Douglas E. Richards Author.
