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.

What the Critics Say

"Brown moves into new territory with his latest. It's an excellent thriller: a big yet believable story unfolding at breakneck pace, with convincing settings and just the right blend of likable and hateful characters. He's also done his research, folding in sophisticated scientific and military details that make his plot far more fulfilling than the norm." (Publishers Weekly)
"A dazzling high-tech adventure...Brown proves once again that he is among the most intelligent and dynamic of authors in the thriller genre." (Library Journal)
"This is pretty exciting stuff...and Brown certainly does have a knack for spinning a suspenseful yarn." (Booklist)

    As all the books of Dan Brown, he keep the reader in his book and it is impossible to let it before to be too tired.

    "An Disappointing Average Book"

    I read this after reading the Da Vinci Code. I was expecting the same high quality complex plot. Unfortunately this book did not meet up to that standard. It was fairly obvious from the beginning what was going on. However this didn't take away completely from the suspenseful novel. I still enjoyed the book and the characters. If I wasn't comparing it to the Da Vinci Code, I might have given it a higher rating.

    "This is How You Write a Book!"

    From the first minute to the last I couldn't stop listening to this book. It was so interesting! Dan's research on military, politics, and innovative technology was absolutly wonderful. I recomend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a good read.

    "Not as good as DaVinci Code - but!!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The science was interesting and the characters were fun to get to know. No, this book is not as good as DaVinci Code, but I still really enjoyed the listen and the story. For those who think they shouldn't listen to this because it's not as good as DaVinci code - really, that was such a good book, there are few that can compare!

    "Deception Point"

    As always, Dan Brown has written another winner. It keeps you interested in going on to see what is next. Enjoyed this very much as with all of Dan Browns' books.

    "Predictable..but fun"

    I enjoyed this audiobook; it wasnt on par with Dan's other 3 novels but it was entertaining. I was unimpressed with the slightly lame plot and I was often confused by badly described action scenes. But thats ok, because Dan Brown really learnt a lot from it, and he improves his style immensely in his other novels. All the same, it is pure Dan Brown and is perfect for those eager for some more of his style of writing, as we all wait for his next novel.

    "Not good"

    If you are a fan of Dan Brown, I would recommend you skip reading or listening to this book. The narration was fine, it just felt too grueling to listen to this entire story. It's obvious that he did a lot of research and was trying to pump his new knowledge into the story. It just didn't come together very well. Any of Brown's other books make for a much better listen.
