In 2022, the world abruptly changed for the worse when millions suddenly vanished. Shock, fear, and anger became the norm as violence gripped the survivors, if that is even an appropriate word for those who still lived on planet earth. Using advance technology, a police state that makes Orwell’s 1984 look as simple as Ashcroft’s 2004 take control of everyday life. Additionally, ruthless war lords lead lawless anarchists taking whatever they want as long as they stay away from the even more merciless ruling elite.
In this world gone mad some good people still try to raise their family with positive values towards others. Graham and Jackie Peck are such a couple until the violence hits home when someone aimlessly killed his mother. As their son asks questions about his Grammy, the Pecks seek answers too. Why would God do this to a caring kindhearted innocent person like his mother and why was this family left behind? For answers they turn to the New Seekers, but that membership leads the Pecks to ponder more questions of what to do believe.
This is an exciting end times thriller that makes a case that today’s international governments ,including a belief in the empire seeking of the United States sets the stage for the Anti-Christ to move into control. Aimed as a warning tale to Christians, WIRED is a solid thriller that fans of apocalypse now tales will appreciate though the leaps in political integration seems stretched. Still the audience will receive a wonderful tale due mostly to the stunned Pecks wondering what they did wrong to be left behind.
