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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Exactly what you expect from Dan Brown

Deception Point is a great example of how Dan Brown can dive into an obscure world and pull out tons of interesting facts that constantly make you want to stop and Google things!

STORY: Brown does his research when he writes a book. He is a master of immersing his story into a new world of science, history, art or whatever the subject matter. Deception point is no exception. The story is entertaining and full of twist and turns. It is also completly implausible on every level. Brown also cannot help but to insert a farfetched romace into all his stories. Still overall its very entertaining.

NARRATOR: The narrator is fine in many regaurds. He changes his tone well, subtly changes his voice for different characters and paces the story well. Now the problem; he is constantly swallowing or gulping throughout the reading. once you notice it it becomes infuriating. He also sounds like he is costantly out of breath well reading. it became very hard to concentrate on the story after a while.

Overall i think its a great listen if hou enjoy Brown's books. I wish it could be rerecorded with a different narrator or edited better.

Riveting

Dan Brown always grabs my attention by the throat and doesn't let go until the last word! This book was no exception. I enjoyed every moment, except the sound of the narrator swallowing and making smacking noises. It wasn't distracting enough to quit listening but the tech side should have been taken care of better than it was.
Overall a great read.

THE SWALLOWING!!! KILL ME!!

Would you try another book from Dan Brown and/or Richard Poe?

For Sure

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The constant swallowing, licking of lips, smacking of tongue!! OMG!! The worst.

Any additional comments?

The story was great. I love Dan Brown. The story had to have been good for me to continue this book through the mouth noises. It was so freaking distracting and gross. I had to pause it at times. C'Mon editing. Let's work this out and give a good book a chance to do even better.
