Deception Point by Dan Brown
Conspiracy theories, how I thrive on them!
Dan Brown has delivered a fabulous holiday read, a distraction from the mundane in Deception Point.
Set in the freezing wastelands of the arctic, the gales blow from murder to murder as the plot unfolds. I was duped, quite sure I knew who the villain of the piece was only to be astounded along with the rest of the crew when the true culprit stood up.
That is the gift of a master story teller as Dan Brown surely is. From the first sentence to the last the reader is taken through a series of hoops, given fascinating insight into the natural world, the scheming of politicians, the concerns of the intelligence agencies entrusted with keeping the avarice of industry in check.
A fabulous romp when and if you need an escape for a few hours.
