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 re-election. 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. 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. Publikace: DECEPTION POINT (Re-issue A-format) - BROWN, D.. Rachel Sexton works for the National Reconnaissance Office as an
intelligence officer. She is also the daughter of a Senator
currently running for President. Her father's main offensive, and a
very popular one, against the incumbent President is to attack the
huge amount of NASA funding. Rachel is barely on speaking terms
with her father, believing him to be totally corrupt, but is still
worried she is being used by the President when he asks her to
verify an amazing find by NASA, a find which will settle the
arguments about NASA funding for ever. Reluctantly agreeing to view
the find Rachel is whisked off to the North Pole. What she finds
once she gets there takes her breath away. However, she quickly
learns that nothing is what it seems, and, with two civilian
scientists, is soon fleeing for her life. Stranded on an ice berg
they are rescued in the nick of time by a nuclear submarine, but
once back in the US their attempts to expose the plot show them
that they can trust absolutely no one. Publikace: DECEPTION POINT (Re-issue A-format) - BROWN, D.. 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... originální anglická
