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)

    "Taut Thriller with Lip-Smacking Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Deception Point: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    A terrific non-Langdon Dan Brown thriller with tons of twists, great characters and the usual, spectacular descriptions. Kept me listening, even though I had to turn the volume down to ignore the narrator's lip-smacking habit.


    What aspect of Richard Poe’s performance would you have changed?

    I think Mr. Poe should've used some Fisherman's Friend Lozenges and Throat Coat Tea before each day's performance while sitting further back from the mike.

    "Deception Point a worthy read"

    After having read Digital Fortress which I enjoyed until the ridiculous ending I was skeptical of reading a 2nd book or in this case listening to a 2nd book from Dan Brown.
    I'm not a big stickler that every book needs to be realistic. It's entertainment for me and most importantly I want to get sucked in and feel the story happening in my mind.
    I want to be able to picture the characters and feel I got a good knowledge of them. This book accomplished all of that. Storyline is out there but that's ok. Made it enjoyable to see what would happen next.
    Since this was the 2nd time I've listened to this and as of now I'd say it's only behind Angels and Demons for me. That's without having listened to Inferno yet.
    Enjoyable book to get lost in.

    "Not my favorite but still decent."

    Deception point was a captivating book. I always felt as if I did not want to put the book down. The storyline, however, was weird. The story involved political figures, Army Delta Force, NASA, and researchers. The plot involved a cover-up and a woman with daddy issues trying to discover and reveal the truth. Also, I found the end to be a bit cheesy. If you're a Dan Brown fan, definitely read the book. But, in my opinion, it wasn't his best. With that said, it was still a good book and Dan Brown is still a fantastic author.

    "Performance was lacking"

    They did not edit well. There we a lot of dead time and mouth noises. It kind of turned me off to this reader. Hopefully he doesn't read anymore book I like.

    "Started good and ended poorly"

    I've enjoyed other Dan Brown stories, but the the more I listened, the less it held my interest. The last hour of the story in my opinion was terrible and made me wish I hadn't invested 16 hours of my time listening to this book.
