The #1 novel of 2011 in two major categories—science fiction and technothrillers—an unprecedented achievement
New York, New York (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
The runaway biotech bestseller, WIRED, was not only a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, but the bestselling Kindle novel of 2011 in two major categories—science fiction and technothrillers—an unprecedented achievement.
Now, as the WIRED sequel, AMPED, climbs the charts to glowing reviews, the eBook version of WIRED is being offered on Amazon and Barnes & Noble for only $3.95. The author of these books, Douglas E. Richards, has been frequently compared to the late Michael Crichton for his ability to weave action, suspense, and well-researched science into riveting page-turners.
Richards has a master's degree in genetic engineering and was a biotechnology executive for many years. 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."
