When a new NASA satellite spots evidence of an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory...a victory that has profound implications for U.S. space policy and the impending presidential election. With the Oval Office in the balance, the President dispatches 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 -- a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy. But before Rachel 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 Deception Point, bestselling author Dan Brown transports readers from the ultrasecret National Reconnaissance Office to the towering ice shelves of the Arctic Circle, and back again to the hallways of power inside the West Wing. Heralded for masterfully intermingling science, history, and politics in his critically acclaimed, blockbuster thrillers Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, Brown has crafted a novel in which nothing is as it seems -- and behind every corner is a stunning surprise. Deception Point is pulse-pounding fiction at its best.
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.

Brown Doesnt Disappoint
I read this well after reading "The DaVinci Code" and I found this to be a quick, exciting read.
Mr Brown has certainly studied cold climate and its effects as well!
Simply put, you wont be disappointed if you decide to read Mr Browns novels, - even though they are not about the same topic. He is a great story teller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Perhaps Hollywood would find a way to produce this novel into a movie too.

This book is not as good as Dan Brown's other books, but it's an okay book to read. It starts out slow, so you have to chug through the first chapter or so, but once you get past that then it gets much better. Just make sure that you give it time.

Full of Twists and Turns
I thought I knew where it was going and I was suprised. Very well written. I had a good time reading it. My daughter picked it up after me. It is on the Summer reading list and I recommend it.
