Reviews Rachel Sexton, government intelligence analyst and daughter of prominent politician and presidential candidate Senator Sedgewick Sexton, has been summoned by her father's opponent, the President of the United States, for a top secret briefing. A high density rock mass weighing over 8 tons has been found in the Arctic buried underneath 200 feet of solid ice. This giant rock turns out to be a meteorite which impacted Earth over 300 years ago. Rachel is sent to the Arctic location to verify the authenticity of the meteorite. The President has already assembled a team of NASA and civilian scientists to study the meterorite and to document the findings. Amongst this team is one Michael Tolland, oceanographer and TV personality. The President will make an announcement to the World press of the discovery of the meteorite but this is not just any meteorite. This astounding discovery will make or break NASA and the President's future life in politics. Ready to step into the President's shoes is his fierce opponent and strongest critic of NASA, Senator Sedgewick Sexton. Meanwhile back in the Arctic, Rachel and Michael discover unexplained inconsistencies in the evidence presented about the meteorite. Together with 2 other scientists they leave the habisphere to do further tests. Whilst the results of the tests appear before their unbelieving eyes, one of the scientists in the team is suddenly murdered. Someone in the middle of the Arctic is trying to kill them but why? Rachel and Michael find themselves on the run in the middle of nowhere. This was a fast paced, action packed thriller overloaded with scientific information and political intrigue. Dan Brown creates suspense and tension like no other writer, keeping the reader on the edge of their seats, eager to turn the pages until the end. The characters were larger than life. You are cheering on the hero and heroine all the way through their dangerous journey to uncover the truth. The plot twists and turns and you do not know which baddie you should be jeering at. A most marvellous and highly recommended read.
Deception is a mystery/thriller that has tons of action throughout the whole story. The story is centered around a presidential campaign. The two candidates are the current president, and the main character's father, Mr. Sexton. Mr. Sexton is a man who is very cunning and sly. He wants to win this campaign more than anything. But there's a twist- his daughter is working for the current president. The main character is Rachel Sexton, who works for a secret intelligence section of the pentagon. She deals with dumbing down the reports so that the white house can understand what they're saying. In this book, she is suddenly taken away, by the president himself, to observe and relay what is happening at the artic circle to the white house. Something that is truly amazing and terrifying at the same time. Something scientific that will make NOAA become renowned for centuries to come. I thought that this book was a terrific book. Combined with action and adventure, science and politics, this book is written for just about any reader. This book is written for those people who can read long words without getting lost. This is also a long book, and can take a while to get through, but the action in it really makes the pages fly by. The ending comes unexpected, and makes you think. If you are a reader who loves action, adventure, science, politics, and mystery, I can almost guarantee you'll love this book. This is truly a great
Deception Point is the sophomore book from Dan Brown. This book is worlds better then his first book Digital Fortress. It has everything you want in a political thriller with a little science fiction thrown in. There's sex (not to much enough to make it titillating), greed, political, power grabbing, and a nice little touch of family discord. The main characters are well developed and will be easy to cast for the movie (this one BEGS to be made into a movie!). I will not bore y'all with my casting (I've tried to be good and not color my reviews with how I cast then while I ready them.). The good are good and the bad are very very bad. It's a fun read that you will not want to put down until the last twist is turned!
