Kira Miller has been secretly working on a formula to enhance human intelligence. But what she doesn’t realize is that others are aware of her research, as well as the idea she worries could destroy the world.

Suddenly finding herself on the run, she teams up with military man David Desh, formerly of Special Forces. As they run from those who want to capture Kira, she enlightens David as to the damage that could be done if her work ever reached the public. No matter what, she needs to keep this a secret, even if it means losing her own life in the process.

Wired is a fast-paced science-fiction action novel, but it occasionally bogs down in long conversations between Kira and David. I enjoyed reading this book, for the most part, but the surprise out-of-the-blue ending didn’t work for me. I would have preferred if we had been given hints as to the identity of the man hunting Kira, as well as what David knew in order to stop him. But overall, this is a good read.
