AMPED (Wired Book 2)


WIRED, the novel that introduced Kira Miller and David Desh,was a runaway NY Times bestseller, and the bestselling novel on Amazon in the categoriesof Science Fiction and Thrillers for over a year. Now Miller and Desh return ina breathtaking stand-alone thriller.

Kira Miller is a brilliant scientist who discovers how to temporarily boosthuman IQ to dizzying levels. But this transcendent intelligence brings with ita ruthless megalomania. Determined to use her discovery to propel humancivilization to a higher plane, despite this side effect, Kira and ex-specialforces operative David Desh recruit a small group of accomplished scientists, allof whom are safely off the grid. Or so they think . . .

Soon Kira and her team are fighting for their lives against unknown butpowerful adversaries. Worse still, while on the run and being relentlesslyattacked from all quarters, Kira comes across evidence of savage acts that theenhanced version of Desh kept hidden, even from himself. Now both she and Deshmust question everything they think they know. Can they trust each other? Canthey even trust themselves?

And all the while, the greatest threat of all may be coming from an entirelyunexpected direction. A threat that could lead to devastation on a globalscale. And time is quickly running out . . .

Like its predecessor, AMPED is a smart thriller crammed with breakneck action,unexpected twists, mind-blowing science, and philosophical and ethical conceptsreaders will be contemplating long after they've read the last page.
