When a blue whale tagged with a web-cam designed with stolen defense technology broadcasts a brutal murder at sea as part of a television nature program, Special Agent Tara Shores finds herself navigating an ocean of manipulation and deceit. It's a deadly race to reach the 100-ton creature roaming the Pacific before an unknown killer can destroy the digital evidence it carries.
As Shores dives deeper into the case, what she initially dismisses as a publicity stunt for the glitzy reality series soon sweeps her out to sea in a riptide of greed, intrigue, and high-tech crime.

"A whale of a tale by first-time author Rick Chesler involving modern-day pirates, media moguls, and a sexy federal agent -- all chasing a cetacean-mounted camcorder and the crucial piece of evidence needed to resolve a murder." (Steve Alten, NY Times best-selling author of Grim Reaper and Meg)
"Wired Kingdom is a fast-paced thriller that is one third deep-sea adventure, one third FBI sleuthing and one third awesome. A superb debut novel and killer concept."(Jeremy Robinson, author of Pulse and Instinct)
When I picked up Wired Kingdom it was believed to be the first book by Rick Chesler that I was going to read, I found out shortly after that I've read a couple of books that he co-authored and I throughly enjoyed them so I didn't expect any less from this book. I was not disappointed in the slightest. I was hooked from the first chapter, it has great characters, it's fun, interesting and makes you think. The detail was just right. If you are looking for an intelligent, fun, well written thriller then this is the book for you.
Jeffrey Kafer does a fantastic job narrating this book, you never doubt which character is which. He does an excellent job of drawing you in and holding your attention through the whole book.
