Richards is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of WIRED and more than a dozen other. Wired by Douglas E. Richards - The sensational bestseller read by over a million people and translated into six languages. Richards is “a worthy successor to.

The 1 bestselling Kindle book for an entire year in two major categories: Kira Miller is a brilliant genetic engineer who discovers how to temporarily achieve a transcendent level of intelligence. But this enhancement comes at a high cost. When Kira is found to be behind a bioterror plot that threatens millions, special forces operative David Desh is tasked with hunting her down. 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 becomes a key player in a deadly game he can't begin to understand. One that is certain to have a dramatic impact on the future course of human history.

His intricate plot had me unable to put the book down at any chapter though I was literally forced to many times. There is a very small amount of language with the F-bomb dropped a few times. Other than that, there were no embarrassing scenes, and the violence though strong was not bad at all.

The intensity of the story came from the plot of genetics, biology, and chemistry. It was all about the unknown and who could be trusted.

I have had a few books this year that I have said are the must-reads of This book just shot up to the very top of that list! But only start when you can finish it.

This book was provided by the author with no expectation of a positive review. I won this book from the Member Giveaways on Library Thing.

I have to start by saying this is one of the best books I have read in a very long time! The subject material is astounding and very imaginative. This book is one that will make you want to keep reading and never put it down. Enhancing human intelligence is the subject of this book.

The main characters are Kira Miller, a genius who works in gene therapy, and David Desh, who is a retired Special Forces agent who served overseas. The government and military believe that Kira is engineering a plot to wipe out the entire population with an Ebola virus and is working with terrorists.

David who goes by Desh in the book is being hired to go after her and capture her to bring her to justice for the plot and for killing several people from her past, including her parents, two teachers and her brother.

There are a few twists and turns, and eventually, Desh figures out that Kira is telling him the truth - that she is being set up to take the fall.

They, together with a few trusted friends of Desh's, find the person s responsible and go after them. The book is very exciting and there's always something new. The detail that goes into this book is wonderful and gives a reader a very good understanding of what exactly gene therapy is and how it can either help or hinder society.

Kira and Desh eventually meet up by way of Kira kidnapping Desh and she tries to get Desh to believe her that she is being set up. I don't want to go into any more of the subject material of this book, as it will give too much away, however, I will say that there is so much action in this book, you won't want to put it down!

At the end of the book, the author leaves open the possibility of a sequel, which I do hope he does!! Fantastic, brilliant book and I very highly recommend this to everyone!!

WIRED (English Edition) eBook: Douglas E. Richards: Kindle Store

This book had as an interesting story. It's too bad that it's written so poorly. Instead of explaining how the characters accomplish anything, the author simply states that they execute "exactly" right to achieve "perfect" results every time. In fact, everything they do in the entire book is "flawless". These just aren't realistic characters.

I guess that's to be expected when your prtagonist is the best Special Forces operative in the world and he hires the best hacker in the world only uses h This book had as an interesting story. I guess that's to be expected when your prtagonist is the best Special Forces operative in the world and he hires the best hacker in the world only uses his powers for good to help him find the most brilliant molecular biologist in the world who manages to hack the best hacker in the world's computer and kidnap the world's best Special Forces operative.

It's so disappointing because the plot of the bio-engineered enhanced intelligence was really a great idea. The storyline even played out fairly well. Unfortunately the words read like they came from a 10 year old. No one. I never write book reviews, but this book merits one.

One word describes it: The writing is cliche and amateurish: While the premise is interesting and the main characters promising, the execution is terrible. How this made on the New York Times best selling novel list is beyond me.

Not once was I able to sink into the story and relax in I never write book reviews, but this book merits one. Not once was I able to sink into the story and relax into the plot: I found myself critiquing the writing instead of enjoying the novel and I use that term lightly.

I feel I have wasted not only a couple of hours of my life, but also my free December book loan from Amazon. Trust me: You'll be better for it. View 1 comment. Book Info: Biotechnological Thriller Reading Level: Adult My Thoughts: Swallow a pill and genetically altered viruses rush to your brain?

Adding to my irritation while I was reading was a plethora of exclamation point abuses — every sentence that could possibly be surprising was ended by one! Someone moved! A gun fired!

A grenade! Really annoying. The ideas presented are fairly interesting, and the series seems like it might be trying to make some sort of point about the human condition.

There is a sequel out now called AMPED if you are interested in pursuing this book, so be sure to watch for both of them. The author is obsessed with content to the extent he practices zero literary form seen prior the "da Vinci Code". He has co-op'd every imaginable motif; war hero, gum shoe, boy meets girl, super hero antics, mind altering drugs, endless multiple hidden plot reversals bordering on the absurd,the ultimate insult; pretended parallels with the psychological realities of Friedrich Nietzsche.

After completing the Read I felt the author had nothing of his own soul invested.

It causes one to pause and reflect on what has happened. Additionally the ease allowed by word processing software has replaced a writer's necessity to preconceive, plan and visualize in the mind beforehand. The venerable author hovering over his mechanical typewriter, rewriting passages or longhand rewrites had an effective value both subtle and powerful; STYLE. It seems style has been undermined by entertainment media.

The 'good stuff' takes time to create and experience. When one is immersed in a fine fiction,one wants to reduce the pace not accelerate it. The trash cans on the corner and The New York Times bestseller enlist in equal proportion; easily conceived and executed, lacking reflection, editorship or life experience.

It always shows through in Art,because it sells is simply not a complete definition of success. We the audience of course share the blame. Our swelling appetite for the effortless cultural stimulation drives this condition. I believe one can and should learn from an author.

The author is learned wise or possess something we do not. The life experience must be there for him to have something meaningful to say to the readership. An 'artist has to suffer',the saying goes,the audience too,but not this way!

There is another old saying that applies; pier group looks at form, non-pier group looks at content. The audience is not seeing or responding to the form elements of written fiction in WIRED because we have been watching television, going to movies,probably not reading enough classic fiction and philosophy as students. As a result we crave only what happens next,not how it is written. Like visual art , the literary market is being merely entertained or manipulated by ,not bestowed by the authors genius.

The forum itself ultimately suffers. The reader feels like the hungry man in search of a good meal and finds only another fast food joint. Richards and To sum up in one sentence or less Richards is an amazing writer. About the book And by brilliant I mean brilliant. She graduated from high-school at sixteen, received her BS in molecular biology at nineteen and then went on to obtain a Ph. However, this advancement is not without a price Not knowing what to do with himself after he retired; David joined an executive bodyguard service but gets recalled to duty for one final mission: Reviewed in association with Rebecca's Reads.

With characters that came straight from central casting it was hard to personalize the book. Like the proverbial onion the story continually reveals layers and twists, many of which surprised me. The book has the annoying part where the antagonist explains the whole thing to the bound and helpless heroes only to have everything go wrong in the last chapter.

However in t With characters that came straight from central casting it was hard to personalize the book. However in this case it fits because the bad guy is a sociopathic egomaniac Not sure.

Otherwise it was a good story line when it dealt with the characters, dialogue, events and such it was pretty good.

If you like pondering things like superior intellect and theories of this and that then you will enjoy this book. If you prefer to read more character interaction and banter between characters all while unfolding whatever events are taking place then this may not be for you. Overall this book comes down to preference so I'd say give it a shot. Sep 05, Rick rated it did not like it.

Gawd Awful! How does this crap become a NY Times best seller? I read Split Second as I have an interest in time travel fiction. It was Gawd Awful but I thought maybe it was just a stinker. Shakespeare wrote Titus Andronicus, a stinker. So, to be fair, I decided to read Wired. A Fun Read…but Maybe Too Much Voila Science Wired is story of brilliant genetic engineer Kira Miller, who is accused of a diabolical bioterror plot, and ex-special forces operative David Desh, who is tasked with finding and stopping her.

Let me jump right to the conclusion. But even so, Richards puts a great deal into this novel besides the pace and twists — a bit of romance, some thought-provoking science, and even some light philosophy meaning of life, existence of God kinds of topics.

Yes, this kind of combination is a bit trite, but it still makes for some fun reading from time to time. And Richards does it well. In effect, when anything is possible, nothing is surprising. But giving Richards his due, he does pick an interesting path through the alternatives.

Fun, fast, full of twists…and some material to think about as well. Have you ever wondered what you would do if you had a chance to enhance your intelligence significantly? What if you could double your lifespan? Would you? These are the questions that brilliant scientist, Kira Miller, is working on in her genetic research, but when a trail of bodies start to pile up around her, she becomes enemy 1 in the eyes of the government. David Desh, a former special-forces soldier, is called in for one more mission.

Problem is, this mission is totally off the books. Dav Have you ever wondered what you would do if you had a chance to enhance your intelligence significantly? David must rely on his own training and intuition to catch this elusive genius.

David has been told that Kira is working with terrorists on a bio-terror plot that threatens millions, but not everything is as it seems. Who is telling the truth and who is really behind the bio-terror plot?

Richards weaves a story full of deception, intrigue, betrayal and a mystery that becomes more complicated with each turn of the page. The author draws you in with each little clue. Who will come out of top? Is there a top to come out on? Are things really as black and white as the government claims? This thriller is non-stop action and will satisfy readers of both thrillers and mysteries.

A must read. Highly Recommended. And that got huge accolades. It had a lot of accurate science in it, so science teacher organizations around the country were praising it. Because the kids seem to love these books, and yet I could never make it where you could really make a living out of it.

I also found that sales were not at all tied to publicity.

And I know that authors tend to be delusional. People have an over-estimation of their capabilities. So I wrote this thriller Wired , which is kind of a Michael Crichton kind of thing, a techno thriller.

I finally gave up. This thing called Librarything allowed you to give books away free to the membership. For the first month, I gave away maybe three or four hundred copies.

My feeling was my only chance in this cluttered world, I have no name, so my only chance to get anybody to read this is word of mouth. People have to love it, and they have to tell a lot of other people about it.

I was already back into biotech. I had already written this thing off. So I put it out there and then it went viral.

By the end it was selling two or three thousand copies a day. Right next to The Help. Because you get to keep so much of the sales price? So then I started writing more books, and my third one I went with a traditional publisher.

I got the six figure advance, and they were lovely people. They did a beautiful job. You could die of old age. It was somewhat successful. I did all kinds of radio. They put a full page ad in Scientific American. So I make a little bit abroad. All the books have Audible editions, and I get a little advance.

I get some royalties from there. I might have sold three or four hundred paperbacks last month. Is the best use of your time always just writing the next book? Do you do anything like writing workshops or speaking gigs or teaching community college classes? Yes, absolutely, it is writing. After Wired , I quit biotech again. I have a Facebook page and I love it. What I found was, over the years, the effort I spent on advertising or radios or great reviews or big write-ups, none of that really helped.

Absolutely fascinating. The premise may seem absurd, but the plot is driven by this very absurdity. It is engaging and enthralling. A delightful twist in the tale which draws everything together, adds to the narrative. While there is little humor, the notion of the plot does not lend itself to such.
