From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno—now a major film directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones—comes a lightning-fast thriller about an astonishing NASA discovery that uncovers a vicious conspiracy leading all the way to the White House.

A shocking scientific discovery. A conspiracy of staggering brilliance. A thriller unlike any you've ever heard...

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!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil | 4/22/2018

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neil | 4/22/2018

    " 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! "

  • 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 | 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. "

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

  • 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. "
