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.

I liked it, but to me the narrator made it a little less than perfect. The plot is DEFINITELY unique and the story keeps a great pace till the end, with surprise after surprise. Yes, it's definitely a medical, biotechnological, action packed thriller and yes it's definitely interesting, but the characters are almost TOO perfect. It has a potential to become a series, but it needs a little more realism and to come down a little from the clouds before I think this character will go main-stream.
Worth the credit, but not an all out purchase, if that makes sense. I'll read another of his books if he writes one just to see how the author progresses.
I actually chose this book because it had a sequel but have no plans to read the next one. The premise was interesting. I liked the suspense. The tech stuff was fun. I wanted to find out what happened but just couldn't make myself listen to any more of the overly dramatic dialogue. If a superhero comic book could be made into an audiobook this would be it!
Note to self. Be more thorough in reading all reviews. Not everyone likes the same style.
Entertaining, insightful, riveting
David Desh leads us through the adventure
When Kira and David escape the safe house. The description of the mind altering experience is amazing.
Thoroughly entertaining. I enjoy a story I can try and puzzle out. This one has many entertaining twists
The first fourteen chapters kind of run-on without enough character development IMO, but in chapter fifteen things get interesting and then it just keeps getting better. A talented new writer whom I'll be following in the future.
to many new books to find and listen to or read I am 69 finally have time but not for that long I enjoy thought provoking syfi
According to the Bible The Arch-angel became the devil by trying to be as God?
