Dan Brown’s Deception Point is very different from his much more famous series that all began with Da Vinci Code.
When a NASA satellite detects evidence of a meteor buried deep within the Arctic ice the struggling agency declares a much needed victory, a victory that has profound implications for their future and that of US space policy, not to mention the looming US presidential elections.
With his presidential run in the balance the incumbent dispatches White House intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton to the Arctic to verify the authenticity of the new find.
Rachel however uncovers the truth, the unthinkable, evidence of scientific wizardry that could plunge the world into chaos.
This is quintessential Dan Brown, its fast, its loud and its briefly entertaining though ultimately shallow. It’s written well sure, and the location of the novel is perfect for that heart pounding thriller action he is most well known for, yet the characters are shallow and poorly conceived while the plot is laughable for the most part.
If you’re a big Dan Brown fan and haven’t read Deception Point yet I’d certainly recommend checking it out. But if you’re a new reader look at his Robert Langdon series, they’re a little better.
You can check out Deception Point for yourself on Amazon.
