    An unprecedented scientific discovery, its impact on the presidential elections, and the fate of NASA’s future whirl around the deception of one man, whose victory will shape the future of science and the world.

    Summary Of The Book

    The book begins with an enigmatic prologue which promptly sows the seeds of intrigue for the entire read.

    In the light of the imminent elections, President Zachary isn’t looking too good in the public eye. A staunch NASA supporter, he has endorsed a series of NASA’s failed missions with the tax payer’s money. His nemesis, the manipulative senator Sedgewick Sexton, has used this to his utmost advantage and is basking in the good books of the people, as his intentions of abolishing NASA have been publicized.

    So when NASA satellites descry a high density meteorite, submerged in the Milne ice shelf and carrying fossils of extraterrestrial bugs, in the midst of this political unrest, the miraculous find seems to be a ploy to secure the incumbent president a second term in the White House. The president personally requests Rachel from the NRO (coincidentally also the estranged daughter of Senator Sexton), to accompany a team of eminent civilian scientists to authenticate NASA’s claim. When Michael Tollan, the renowned oceanographer, astrophysicist Corky Marlinson, glaciologist Nora Mangor, paleontologist Wailee Ming, and Rachel Sexton arrive at their destination and examine the fossils, everything seems bona fide and a spirit of victory sets in as the President is informed.

    As in all of Dan Brown’s novels, there are multiple events that come to pass simultaneously in different locations. Concurrent with all that has transpired, there is another coterie in the vicinity - the Delta Force. Operating invisibly under the orders of an unknown chief, the unit is observing the arena and monitoring the movements of the scientists closely. In the White House, President Zachary is all set to go public about the new discovery. At the Milne Ice Shelf however, Ming notices some aberrance in the nature of the ice under the meteorite. Before he gets to investigate it further, he’s killed. Observing the same phenomena later, the other scientists figure out that what should have been an enclosed area of fresh water, is in fact sea water, which is logically impossible. Subsequent to their new findings, they are ambushed by the Delta Force, who manage to kill another member of their team.

    Is the discovery of the meteorite and its extraterrestrial fossils, fake? If so, who is the mysterious Delta Force leader and why is he trying to cover it up? Can Rachel and her counterpart secure presidency to the right candidate, by exposing the ulterior motives of the anonymous commander in time?

    The story delivers climax on top of climax as the plot unravels rapidly but comes together in the end.

    Deception Point, Brown’s 3rd novel, is a science fiction novel and was released in 2001. The novel received favorable reviews.

    About Dan Brown

    Dan Brown is an American bestselling novelist and the author of The Da Vinci Code.

    Dan’s first novel was Digital Fortress, after which he wrote Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol, which were adapted into film.

    Dan Brown’s writing has never been for the literature-oriented. His language is concise and delivers explanations of technical matter coherently. His books are extremely fast paced, involving cryptographic symbols and scientific jargon, and generally keep the reader enthralled to the very end.

    Brown was born on 22 June, 1964, in New Hampshire, where he spent his childhood. His fascination for cryptography and symbols began in his childhood as he solved anagrams and entered treasure hunt games invented at home. After completing an Art History course in Spain, he graduated from Amherst University. He married Blythe Newlon in 1997 and lives with her in New Hampshire.

    Good build up but finish a let down

    When u start reading it u cant stop. But still i feel its end is quite a letdown, though it was quite shocking but i expected something much better from Dan Brown. I still feel till date Da Vinci Code is his best.

    A Marvel!

    If we have some knowledge already about NASA and a little bit of science we will feel our pulse high throughout this novel. I really don't know how Mr.Brown have collected these much amount of facts which he has mentioned in the book.
    Forget about Science. Even if we don't know anything about science you will feel amazed in each and every line of this book. Write from the start You will feel the intensity what could have been that discovery and once it is revealed and when Rachel and her fri...

    The big problem with Dan Browns books are, you cant focus on your other part of life if you leave it half read... I skipped my meeting saying not feeling well and was reading it in sick room, fought with my girlfriend, so she will not call me and I can read it… Amazing book… feeling like witnessing every moment what written is happening in front. Desperately wanted to know what will happen next … And very happy to see the marvellous end… MUST… MUST BUY… NOT HAVING A COPY OF DAN BROWN, YOU ARE...

    Interesting initially but slows down towards the climax.

    Firstly, thanks Flipkart for the prompt delivery. Well, the book is a typical Dan Brown thriller. The writer has managed to keep the reader gripped by his style of narrating the story. The revelations have been made at the right place and at the right time which makes this an interesting read. The only thing which I felt personally, is that towards the end it becomes a bit slow, mostly because of the over detailed description of the surrounding circumstances. Moreover, there is more romance d...

    Deceptively gripping.

    First the bad news: if you don't have at least a few days spare time, don't start it, because once you start it, you'll not be able to put it down till you finish it. Now the good new: true to the title, this book keeps you engrossed once you start it. All the facts put in a logical way, no extra push to hard-sell any fact, put in a way, which happens in reality. For anybody looking for suspense, and anybody not looking for the same, just go through it. But, as I said before, keep a few days ...
