New from Encore! A lightning-fast thriller from New York Times bestselling author Dan Brown—a team of scientists called to the Arctic to verify an astonishing NASA discovery uncovers a vicious conspiracy leading all the way to the White House.

When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory—a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery—a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy. But before she can warn the president, Rachel and Michael are ambushed by a deadly team of assassins. Fleeing for their lives across a desolate and lethal landscape, their only hope for survival is to discover who is behind this masterful plot. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all. Download and start listening now!

    " i love dan brown but was new to him. Read the description and had to buy it. Gotta love conspiracy theories! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Oldenburg | 2/13/2014

    " Dan Brown, where did you go and when are you going to write another book!?!?!?! I really enjoy Dan Brown's writign style! Very suspensful and educational in a way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pritam | 2/6/2014

    " Like all other books of Dan Brown,this one too was really amazing...A little scientific enabling us to enhance our g.k. I liked it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Swagato Barman Roy | 1/29/2014

    " Great work, a must read. But if you read 'Digital Fortress' before this one, the story twist might seem a bit familiar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/25/2014

    " Dan Brown is a master of taking fiction and half-truths and weaving them into a story that sounds more than just somewhat believable. While there were factual errors with his story and his claim that "all organizations and technology in this book exist" isn't quite spot-on, he still manages to write an interesting, fast-paced story. Even though his books might seem formulaic, there is no doubt that he keeps you interested and on your toes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 1/21/2014

    " Probably said this before but I am such a sucker for Dan Brown. Quick read thrillers like 24; a whole book encompassing the actions of a single day. Love! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan Groll | 1/19/2014

    " Needed some quick and easy reading after The Historian. Have new respect for bioluminescent algae. Have less respect for Dan Brown, but guess he can only write one da Vinci Code. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 1/18/2014

    " A classic Dan Brown novel, plenty of suspense, plenty of twists, plenty of really short chapters which end at the climax before moving on to a different scene, and plenty of conspiracies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ferdi van der Kamp | 1/12/2014

    " Fun read and a typical Mr. Brown read. In overall too much over the top action and weak plots, making it all to predictable. Started nice with a political battle going on only bad my hero in the book lost. All with all a fun read but nothing spectacle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liza | 1/9/2014

    " Very good. Held my attention. Read it fast! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ajinkya | 12/28/2013

    " Deceptively gripping. Perfect combination of Science, Military ops and politics.Hats off to level of research Dan does for every book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 12/24/2013

    " Great book! This is an earlier book by Dan Brown, but it is written in the same suspensful writing style as his more popular books, like Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pascale De thaey | 12/16/2013

    " Sorry, just not my cup of tea...never finished it because I really didn't like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nik Bramblett | 11/29/2013

    " Nearly overwhelming action, REALLY surprising twists, a great thriller. Wasn't impressed with the unnecessary and gratuitous sex at the end. Completely unnecessary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Satchs | 11/24/2013

    " Action good at end surely a white knuckle event at end, but plot not so believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 11/16/2013

    " Set in Washington DC and the Arctic Ocean, this is another great adventure from Dan Brown. I liked the fact that the main character is a female! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 kami | 10/19/2013

    " Some of the technical stuff was over my head, but it was an okay read. "

    " My favorite of his books thus far "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph Haas | 6/22/2013

    " Before he found his religious symnbology thing, Dan Brown was into techno thrillers. This one was ok, nothing great. I did guess wrong on the big baddy, though, which I always appreciate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Haris | 1/12/2013

    " The deception point failed to reach the level of other Dan Brown masterpieces. You will feel master story tellers wonderful techniques mostly,but this one will not make you feel that you received what you will expect from the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kai | 1/8/2013

    " Dan Brown makes Sydney - Amsterdam bearable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Beeson | 1/7/2013

    " unexpected twists-impossible to put down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vjekoslav Babic | 11/17/2012

    " A nice page turner, not as intriguing as The Da Vinci Code, but very good, with an unexpected twists all over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 9/15/2012

    " page turning journey in the arctic. Sometimes I felt that it was predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Ronan Davis | 7/18/2012

    " Might have been my favorite of Dan Brown's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Khushboo Havelia | 4/27/2012

    " Dan Brown is an inspiration for me, as a great writer. He uses so many different aspects of the world and weaves them together to produce a fact like fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/4/2012

    " This is my favorite by Dan Brown up to this point could not put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary Stanley | 1/10/2012

    " I really liked this one!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyatanu | 12/24/2011

    " Awesome book, I would put it right after The Da Vinci Code. There were a few major and a few minor plot holes but which book doesn't? And the love story felt tacked on. But overall the suspense was maintained well with an explosive ending. Well done Mr. Brown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vikas Sasidharan | 9/10/2011

    " As is the case with his other book (Digital Fortress), Dan Brown doesn't do a good job at keeping the suspense under wraps. That wouldn't stop you from still enjoying this, though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caleb | 6/24/2011

    " Yet another fantastic read. Dan Brown, once again, presents a fabulous work. It is a really interesting look at American politics while presenting a fictional story. If you like Dan Brown, you will most likely enjoy this novel as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/22/2011

    " You read one Dan Brown book, you pretty much read them all. Brown's writing style makes the rest of his books pretty predictable. Still and enjoyable read but 1/3 into the book, I pretty much expected certain things to happen (and they did). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thu N | 6/21/2011

    " Very action packed, but also very predictable considering it's called Deception Point. Maybe if it wasn't called that, the reader wouldn't asking "where's the deception?" after every big discovery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbi | 6/20/2011

    " This book reminded me of Digital Fortress. It was good, and kept you guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 6/13/2011

    " Not my favorite of Dan Brown's work, but it kept me reading. I would read the others before this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyndsey | 6/9/2011

    " This is more Sci-Fi than the rest...by far my favorite of the Dan Brown novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/9/2011

    " Over the top intense political thriller, like all of his books. An easy read that is pretty fun if you don't try to take it too seriously. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 6/8/2011

    " Love it so far...page turner!!!
    "
