Summary:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno—now a major film directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones—comes a lightning-fast thriller about an astonishing NASA discovery that uncovers a vicious conspiracy leading all the way to the White House.

When a new NASA satellite spots 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 US 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 Milne Ice Shelf 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.

But before Rachel can contact the President, she and Michael are attacked by a deadly team of assassins controlled by a mysterious power broker who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. Fleeing for their lives in an environment as desolate as it is lethal, their only hope for survival is to find out who is behind this masterful ploy. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.

In his most thrilling novel to date, bestselling author Dan Brown transports readers from the ultrasecret National Reconnaissance Office to the towering ice shelves of the Arctic Circle, and back again to the hallways of power inside the West Wing. Heralded for masterfully intermingling science, history, and politics in his critically acclaimed thriller Angels & Demons, Brown has crafted another novel in which nothing is as it seems—and behind every corner is a stunning surprise. Deception Point is pulse-pounding fiction at its best.

    This was a very good book. Lots of twists and turns. Very refreshing to not have an idea how the author is going to end the book. Well worth the time to listen!

    I have had to stop the book in the first 30 minutes because the narrators salivating is absolutely out of control. I have never once heard a narrator so awful and skin crawling in my life. He would be fine if someone had done their job in sound isolation but this is absolutely unbearable

    I was hesitant to get this book due to some of the lukewarm reviews that it received. But I am a fan of Dan Brown and decided to give it a try anyway. I was not disappointed. The ending had a twist that I wasn't expecting - I thought I had it figured out, but was wrong and surprised.

    This was a great story that kept me going throughout the whole thing. I am glad I had this on audio, burnt onto CDs I could use in the car - if I had it in paperback, I would have lost sleep because this would have been one I could not put down. It made me look forward to my next drive! Lots of action and intrigue. It would make a good movie, but we all know the book is always better, right? ;)

    I thought the story moved along at a good pace. Some things were pretty predictable--convenient rescues, etc. I basically knew who would die, who would live, who were the bad guys, etc., but there were definitely some surprises. It was a lot of fun, and I applaud the research that must have been done before writing this book. I also felt the reader was only so-so. As I listened in my car, I heard the reader swallowing or breathing or something. It was creepy. But I did enjoy the plot.

    Story is 5 stars. Reader is 1 Star. This was a great story. The downside to this is the reader. The reader can be heard licking his lips alot and lots of heavy breathing. Very annoying especially if you listen with headphones.
