Deception Point by Dan Brown

After reading Da Vinci Code I began to like Dan Brown and after reading Angels and Demons I became a fan. So when I saw Deception point by Dan Brown in the library I didn't hesitate to borrow it straightaway. This guys story telling ability is second to none and he doesn't disappoint in Deception point as well. The other remarkable thing is the amount of research he does before he publishes his books and how he connects those truths with fiction to keep the readers on the edge. In the book he talks about NASA and how much it is costing the US tax payers , He talks about weapons that make use of material in the surrounding environment to make ammunition so they have a constant supply of ammunition , he talks about echelon which is spy network created by the US to spy on the Russians etc and if you do some research you will find that most of these facts are very close to the truth. Furthermore he gives a sneak peak at the internal politics in the capitol and where the real power lies.

Then there is the plot of the story and as usual Dan Brown has come up with a story line that is intriguing , imaginative and extraordinary at the same time. Presenditial campaign , biggest discovery in Human history made by NASA , Delta Force and NRO are all put together to make a book that is so intriguing that you want put it down once you start to read it.

The characters

Rachel Sexton - Daughter of Senator Sedgewick Sexton who works for NRO which sends intelligence reports to the white house.

Michael Tolland - Scientist , popular TV host and one of the few civilian scientists sent out to investigate the mystery.

Sedgewich Sexton - Presedential nominee and a heavy critic of NASA. His lust of power proceeds his love of his daughter ?

William Pickering - Director of NRO , does a man with enough power to wake the president at any hour solve this mystery

Zachary Herney - US president , the most powerful man in the world , will he plan the biggest deception of all just to save his seat or is he deceived like everyon else

Summary given in the back cover

"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 implication for U.S. space polic and the impending presidential election.

With the oval office in the balance, the president dispatches Whits House intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to verify the authenticity of the find.Accompanied by a team of expert,including the charismatic academic Michael Tollan, Rachel uncovers the unthinkable - evidence of scientific tricker - a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy.

But before Rachel can make the findings known, she realises, perhaps too late, that such knowledge puts her and Tolland in deadly jeopardy. Fleeing for their lives in an environment a desolate a it is lethal, they posess only one hope for survival, to find out who is behind this masterful ploy.The truth they will learn , is the most shocking deception of all."

True to the Dan Brown Style

Like almost all of his books in this book also Dan Brown proclaims some bold statements. And you will be hard pressed to find evidence to suggest otherwise. For example his claims of creating ammunition using surrounding material is a well know research topic which is true yet to be proven. His revalations about spy networks are , the specific details about NASA etc are mind blowing and really makes you wonder about the space program. This research ability and how to fits them together with fiction is what truly sets Dan Brown apart. Going searching for "Digital Fortress" now
