Publisher's Summary

When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, 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 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. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.

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)

    "Poltical Intrigue"

    This book is another jewel from the mind of Dan Brown. I learned about government departments, secret weapons and deep and intuitive areas of the political arena I never knew! Dan is such a deep and truthful writer - I think he lived through it all! This is one book to keep and I love how it is read! The reader is GREAT!

    With all the intrigue, knowlege and drama Dan writes about - I think he lived through it all! A book to listen to and read! Can't wait til 2005! Dan Brown is a genius! All of his books should be a movie! I love this book!

    "Not a Da Vinci Code"

    I am always hesitant in reviewing an abridged version of a story, as I don't feel I have "heard the whole story". However, in this case, I did review the Da Vinci Code (abridged), and this book from Dan Brown doesn't match the combination of historical fact and fictional story woven into the Da Vinci Code. An interesting theme and theory, but the characters were shallow, and there wasn't the twists and turns of the Da Vinci Code. Again, this may be due to being the abridged version, but apples to apples, it doesn't compare.
