Deception of Browns Plot Point
If you are interested in a book that will keep you up late at night struggling to keep you eyelids elevated, Deception Point is your oasis. This book will take up all of your free time. The way Dan Brown writes is astonishing. The way that Brown distinguishes his characters is lifelike. In this Rachel Sexton, a white house intelligence analyst, is asked for assistance in an important operation in the Arctic to help NASA. The operation is extremely secret and no one in the world is allowed to know. If word got out about this incredible NASA feat all minds would change about the incriminating thoughts about NASA’s floundering status.

Along with Rachel man named Michael Tolland, who is an oceanographer, work to figure out how to address the public of this outlandish incident. While in the process of verifying the data the two of them including Corky Marlinson, a chubby astrophysicist, are attacked by a group of assassin controlled by a power broker who will stop at nothing to hide the truth. The arctic becomes a sanctuary for fact-less fiction or fiction-less fact that Brown hides professionally. Senator Sexton, a man considered to posses a large hatred for NASA, is in a presidential race and feels that NASA’s unaccomplished presence will be a good source to demolish his opponents thoughts. The president running for his second term has a trick up his sleeve. He knows that this accomplishment for NASA will boost him in the race to keep his position as president. But what he does not know is that NASA’s find in the arctic could have some fiction related to it. This is where Dan Browns mind comes into play.

Brown is effectively able to produce confusion throughout the story to keep your mind wandering. Without a definite answer you are left with a blank. That blank stays put with most of the story that creates desire for an answer. The only way to fill the blank is to read this thrilling novel.
