From the New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code comes an explosive, high-tech thriller that takes readers from the chilling depths of the Arctic Ocean to the treacherous heights of Washington power. 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.

Deception Point Book Review
“Exceedingly clever…. Fascinating and fun…a considerable achievement.” is the praise that the Washington post gave to this book that I wholeheartedly agree to. The US presidential election is coming up, and both candidates are arguing over the necessity of keeping NASA. Meanwhile, pro-NASA presidential candidate Zack Henry, who is also the current president, received news that NASA may have found a huge meteorite in the arctic with samples of extra-terrestrial organisms. The president sent Rachael Sexton, daughter of his opponent senator Sexton, and a team of scientists to investigate the meteorite. As the team of scientists went on a trip to retrieve new samples of the meteorite, to solve some errors in the previous data, they were ambushed by a team of deadly assassins.
I think the plot of this book is excellent, because it is very unpredictable and compelling. The story is set in modern time, so it is easy for readers to understand what the author is saying. Dan Brown continues his style of blending esoteric information into his story to amaze readers in this book.
I really like the characters in this book, because they are all very realistic. The author is of this book is really good at displaying the characters emotions at different life threatening situation, making the characters believable.
Overall, I think Deception Point is a great thriller, and it is so compelling that I finished this book in a day. I would recommend this book to thriller lovers, or just Dan Brown fans.
