Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno and the “master of smart thrills” (People) comes a “rocket-fast thriller” (Vince Flynn) about an astonishing NASA discovery that unravels a deadly conspiracy that leads all the way to the White House.

When a NASA satellite spots evidence of an astoundingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory—one that could have profound implications for US space policy and the impending presidential election. With his re-election hanging in the balance, the President sends White House Intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Milne Ice Shelf to verify the authenticity of the find.

Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic academic Michael Tolland, Rachel uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery. Before she can contact the President, she and Michael are attacked by a deadly team of assassins controlled by a mysterious power broker who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Fleeing for their lives in an environment as desolate as it is lethal, their only hope for survival is to find out who is behind this masterful ploy. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all in this “taut, fast-paced, barn-burner of a book” (St. Petersburg Times).

    " Interesting story with many plot twists! While the ending was a little "stretching", the political/social intrigue more than made up for that. The narration added to the story's captivation. All characters (male, female, urban, suburban, ...) were well defined and story "highlights" were properly emphasized. "

    " Thoroughly enjoyed the story! Narration only served to add to the story as the various characters (male, female, city, country, ...) were well defined. The ending was a little predictable, but enough plot twists existed to make the story extremely interesting! "

    " 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! "

    " 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). "

    " 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. "
