When a new NASA satellite detects evidence of an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory...a victory that has profound implications for U.S. space policy and the impending presidential election.
With the Oval Office in the balance, the President dispatches White House Intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Arctic to verify the authenticity of the find.
Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic academic Michael Tolland, Rachel uncovers the unthinkable - evidence of scientific trickery - a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy...

Review by Colibriani
Yet another Dan Brown page turner and the receipe works every time and doesn´t let you down. This one is a bit different from the better known ones in that it is more centered on science than on the humanities. So far I enjoyed every Dan Brown thriller I read even though the endings tend to be the weakest part of his novels. Deception point has a conspiracy, meteorites, icebergs, corrupt politicians and high tech Special Ops killers...what more can you ask for? Good fun for a long weekend.
