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)

    "Great story"

    There are a few times you figure things out before the story teller but it doesn't ruin the experience.

    "Great story, but too many cliffhangers."

    Excellent story, and well defined characters. more twist than expected or needed, but overall very good.

    "Not the Dan Brown I'm used to."

    I have became a fan of Dan brown in the past few months. This is not the typical Dan Brown type story but is very interesting and as usual is very entertaining. I did have a hard time getting past all the mouth noises that the reader of this book makes throughout the entire book.

    "Great Story, horrible narration and performance"
    Where does Deception Point: A Novel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Although the story was good, the narration includes so much lip smacking, and mouth noise it is difficult to listen too.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Poe?

    Any one would be better.

    "Good story but disgusting mouth noises"

    Good story. The narrator was good but his mouth noises were disgusting. Wish they would have cleaned up the audio a bit to eliminate that.
