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.

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.
