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?
David Desh left the special forces after his team was brutally butchered in Iran. Now he has been reactivated for one last mission: 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 fast paced thriller from start to finish. It's got a bit of science fiction thrown in with the genetic manipulation creating super intelligence. Sure wish it wasn't fiction, I could use something like that!
The characters were ok. Desh and Kira were likeable, though maybe not 100% believable as real people. Kira seemed a little too good at the action stuff for a scientist. Desh did have a soft side to counteract his tough soldier qualities.
The story was written well and paced just right. It kept my attention throughout, and I think it will keep yours.
