Wired by Douglas E Richards

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!!
