New York, New York (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
Launched as an eBook in July of 2011, the riveting biotech thriller, WIRED, quickly became a runaway New York Times and USA Today bestseller, and Amazon's best selling Kindle book of 2011 in two major categories: technothrillers and science fiction -- an unprecedented achievement (and 19th among all books, fiction and non-fiction alike).
Now, for the first time, WIRED, and its critically acclaimed sequel, AMPED, are available in paperback. "Originally, I had no plans to put these books out as physical books," says the author, Douglas E. Richards. "But hundreds of readers have written to me requesting paperback editions for their friends and relatives, and others have insisted that physical editions would be ideal for book-clubs."
Richards is a former biotechnology executive who has written extensively for National Geographic, the BBC, The Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Earth & Sky, and many others. In WIRED, 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."
In addition to the paperback versions of WIRED, and its sequel AMPED, WIRED is now available as an eBook on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for only $3.95.
