About This Book
In the world of page-turning thrillers, Dan Brown holds a special place in the
hearts of many of us. After his first book, Digital Fortress, almost passed me
by, he wrote Angels and Demons, which was probably one of the half-dozen most
exciting thrillers of last year. It is a pleasure to report that his new book
lives up to his reputation as a writer whose research and talent make his
stories exciting, believable, and just plain unputdownable.
The time is now and President Zachary Herney is facing a very tough reelection.
His opponent, Senator Sedgwick Sexton, is a powerful man with powerful friends
and a mission: to reduce NASA's spending and move space exploration into the
private sector. He has numerous supporters, including many beyond the businesses
who will profit from this because of the embarrassment of 1996, when the Clinton
administration was informed by NASA that proof existed of life on other planets.
That information turned out to be premature, if not incorrect. (This story is
true; I repeat, Dan Brown's research is very, very good.) The embattled
president is assured that a rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice will prove
to have far-reaching implications on America's space program. The find, however,
needs to be verified.
Enter Rachel Sexton, a gister for the National Reconnaissance Office. Gisters
reduce complex reports into single-page briefs, and in this case the president
needs that confirmation before he broadcasts to the nation, probably ensuring
his reelection. It's tricky because Rachel is the daughter of his opponent.
Rachel is thrilled to be on the team traveling to the Arctic circle. She is a
realist about her father's politics and has little respect for his stand on
NASA, but Senator Sexton cannot help but have a problem with her involvement.
Adventure, romance, murder, skullduggery, and nail-biting tension ensue. By the
end of Deception Point, the reader will be much better informed about how our
space program works and how our politicians react to new information. Bring on
the next Dan Brown thriller! --Otto Penzler
