The story happens in the time of presidential elections where NASA is becoming the target of the opposition. Suddenly NASA says they have discovered something that could change the all the criticisms by the opposition as false and it can regain the confidence of the tax payers. This could help the president to win the elections. What did they found? Was that really helpful in the elections? How the opposition did take it? Read the novel.
Are there no other knowledge bits? It is an ordinary thriller? Come on. It is Dan Brown’s. How would there be just a story. This one offers a lot of insights about the NASA and the truth behind the so called alien sightings.
Also the hero being an ocean scientist, you could obviously find much information about the ocean creatures. Here the protagonist is not the male part. The NRO gister Rachel is the main character in the novel than the oceanographer Michael Tolland.
Also the main characters involved the president of US, the opposition candidate and other political staffs; it offers you much more information about the political structure of US and the manner in which the elections are happening.
Deception Point takes much unexpected turns than his previous novels. But for me, huge fan of Dan Brown’s riddles, it is not fully satisfied, though it is as faster as any of his other novels.
Although, it is a techno thriller and already 9 years passes from the hardcover edition of it, but still many information about the aircrafts, meteorite among other things are still afresh as these things are not yet for common knowledge.
If you love thrillers, this book is a recommendation for you. Although it is not a Dan Brown type thriller (Of course there are Dan Brown touch in many places), it is a good read.
My Rating ★★★☆☆
