Publisher's Summary

The breathtaking New York Times and USA Today bestseller!

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.

    "Good, but not great."

    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.

    "Too Over The Top"

    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.

    "great story"

    my only negative of this reading is the narrator tended to lower his voice for dramatic effect quite often and it was hard to catch everything he was saying clearly, thus only 4 stars for performance. Other than that a great action story with a very intriguing scientific plot line. If there is a sequel, I would definitely listen!

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Boring!"

    The first several chapters seemed to provide some promise of interest, but Wired goes downhill fast and never recovers. I usually like contemporary SciFi, but not this book.

    "Great premise and potential, poor delivery"
    What did you like best about WIRED? What did you like least?

    Story has a great premise in it, and it also starts great, but it becomes a bore and predictable and there isn't any action or surprising or thrilling portion past the half time.
    also to make matters worse, the narrator is pretty bad, he whispers a lot which makes it hard to hear (he thinks that that's how women sounds) and this also makes you turn the volume up and down all the time (I listen in the car) which is annoying.

    "Annoying"
    What did you like best about WIRED? What did you like least?

    In all fairness, I turned it off after about 30 minutes and read the Kindle version, so my opinion is based on the first 30 minutes of the audio version. I listen to a lot of audio books, and this is by far the worst narration I have heard. It is read in almost a singsongy cadence, and he drops his voice at the end of every sentence and sometimes at the end of phrases within sentences. Trying to listen in the car I missed enough of what was going on that I had to start back at the beginning when I switched to the Kindle. I got the audio version for $3.49 when I bought the Kindle version, but if I had paid full price or spent a credit I think I would have asked for my money back.

    I rarely read fiction, but if I do it has to be really good for me to give it a good review.

    "Very Good"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "After numerous books. The first low review from me"

    This author needs to stick to children's books. This was quite possibly the worst book I've ever read or listened to. It was like some cheesy, badly thought out James Bond plot for the script of a direct to DVD B movie. Don't waste your money or your time.

    "Not For Me"

    Dreadful stereotypes for characters in the first few minutes. Made me think of Mike Hammer.

    "Very entertaining action near future Sci Fi"

    Near future Sci Fi meets action detective in this military spec ops meets genius story. While I wouldn't call this ground breaking, I would call it high entertainment with enough moral conversation to keep it fresh and interesting. A couple solid if not cliche twists are comfortable but don't differentiate the story. I would read a sequel.
