Click Here to Download the Book A shocking scientific discovery. A conspiracy of staggering brilliance. A thriller unlike any you've read.... When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic sea, 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 team of assassins. Fleeing for their lives across a desolate and lethal landscape, their only hope for survival is to discover who is begin this masterful plot. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.
Reviews This story centers on the Presidential race between incumbent President Herney and his opponent, Senator Sedgewick Sexton, whose daughter Rachel is an analyst on the staff of the NRO (National Reconaissance Office) and is asked to participate in a mysterious and confidential assignment on behalf of President Herney. It seems NASA has made an amazing discovery that might secure the dubious future of the organization and revitalize the President's flagging campaign. The interesting detail contributes to the realism in this fascinating story of political rivalry. Frequently writers research the topic about which their plot revolves to the point that we are bored to death but Brown injects his factual material in a surprisingly interesting manner. It enhances the plot and makes the incredible aspects of the story appear to be true. By the time I finished this book I had learned a great deal about NASA, Sattelite surveillance, new and imaginary military weapons, asteriods, and deep sea exploration and enjoyed it all.
Unbelievably good. Out-Crichtons Michael. Out-Clanceys Tom. What a brillliant mind. First Dan Brown builds a fantastic hypothesis and then slowly undoes it. This man should work for the CIA, he is such a brain! This is a terrific story about how NASA falls on its own sword. The characters are well drawn, the women especially. The inside workings of politics is a fun story. How can one writer know so much? One of the best thrillers I have read in several years. Every chapter is a cliff-hanger. When a NASA satellite in the Arctic discovers a meteorite buried deep in a glacier, the foundering Agency grabs the publicity to save it from being voted out of existence by dollar-hungry senators and representatives. The president is also in need of a something to boost his sagging polls. This looks like the life-saver, until it begins to look like a gigantic hoax. And on top of that, someone is willing to kill, and does murder several scientists, in orer to prevent exposure. You won't be able to put this down, once you start it. A high-concept novel, yet thoroughly believeable.
It's been quite some time since I've read a book as tight, exciting, and twisty as Deception Point. I think the last author to bowl me over so quickly was Dean Koontz (his early years, not now). This novel has just about everything you need for a stay-up-all-night read and absolutely nothing you don't need. It's very well-paced, and I swear this is one of the hardest books to put down. Until I read his debut novel, Digital Fortress, and was bowled over again by this new author. He just has a knack for getting you hooked right from the start and not weighing you down with a lot of character development until you're ready. And by this I mean he doesn't spend the first 50-100 pages introducing the main players and boring the socks off of you like a lot of authors do now. He gradually unveils each character over the course of the novel, so like in real life, you get to know them over a period of time. Dan Brown reminds me so much of when Koontz used to write like this, but now all his books are all about the character, and the action, plot, and narrative are secondary. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for character development, but I simply can't remember all there is to know about a person when 50 pages are devoted to them back to back. Just doesn't work, at least for me.
So, read the plot outline above, and if sounds like a genre that will appeal to you, give it a go. I will say that Dan Brown can take the most complicated subject matter and boil it down into something completely understandable. And when I look up some of the things he writes about, I find that all his plot devices are based in fact. How refreshing! So when his prologue or author's note says such-and-such are real places and/or devices, believe him. This is one author who does his homework, and the reader is the beneficiary of all this knowledge. You will walk away from his books feeling completely refreshed, not ripped off, and ready to find his next little gem tucked away somewhere on Amazon!
