'Intrigue and menace mingle in one of the finest mysteries I've ever read.' Clive Cussler

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 implications for U.S. 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 Arctic 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...

Excellent work Mr. Brown. (Non-spoler review.)

One of the best books ever written. A gripping and engaging storyline which was complemented by the technology rich novel it is. It's particularly impressive, as all technology in the novel is real and NOT fictitious. My only critique, is that sometimes it became too "sciency". Whilst a lot was required for the background, and some for the main parts of the plot, it was not necessary at all the times it is mentioned. It would be a perfect book for those who have an interest in science. Some of the political stuff was a little boring as well, but necessary. My favourite parts were the military/action and suspenseful scenes. All round, an incredibly well crafted book which deserves more credibility than it's gotten.
If I was to get if it a percentage of enjoyment, I would mark it: 84%, definitely a good read.
Highly recommended, especially to teenagers and those with an interest in sciences; specifically biology. Also to those with an interest in military. However, it is not limited to the previously stated audience.

I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. A gripping thriller from start to end, a great finish, and another superb Dan Brown masterpiece. Excellent read. Ignore any jealous haters' comments. Probably his best ever.

Deception point

This book is totally "unputdownable". I was captured from the very first chapter and couldn't get to the end of this riveting story quick enough. Highly recommended!
