Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A shocking scientific discovery.
A conspiracy of staggering brilliance.
A thriller unlike any you've ever read...

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.

Review:

"[A]n excellent thriller — a big yet believable story unfolding at breakneck pace, with convincing settings and just the right blend of likable and hateful characters." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[T]his is pretty exciting stuff...and Brown certainly does have a knack for spinning a suspenseful yarn. On the other hand, his writing style is merely adequate." Booklist

Review:

"There's intrigue aplenty, both in the Arctic and in Washington, and Brown does not disappoint with this genuine page-turner." Library Journal

Review:

"[M]ostly tedious....Although Brown is a more astute storyteller than most of his brethren in the technothriller vein...he's never able to convincingly marry the technical and the human sides of Deception Point." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"A master of smart thrills." People

Review:

"A rocket-fast thriller....An outstanding read." Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Consent to Kill

Synopsis:

After a NASA satellite discovers a mysterious object buried beneath the Arctic ice, a team of scientists is called in to verify the authenticity of the find. What they discover, however, is a plot of unimaginable deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy — a vicious, high-ranking conspiracy that may lead all the way to the White House.
