On the eve of a presidential race in which NASA's budget is a pivotal issue, the space agency announces the discovery of an ancient meteorite filled with fossils deep in the Arctic ice.

Simon and Schuster
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and Inferno—now a major film directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones—comes a lightning-fast thriller about an astonishing NASA discovery that uncovers a vicious conspiracy leading all the way to the White House.

A shocking scientific discovery. A conspiracy of staggering brilliance. A thriller unlike any you've ever read...

When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory—a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable: evidence of scientific trickery—a bold deception that threatens to plunge the world into controversy. But before she can warn the president, Rachel and Michael are ambushed by a team of assassins. Fleeing for their lives across a desolate and lethal landscape, their only hope for survival is to discover who is behind this masterful plot. The truth, they will learn, is the most shocking deception of all.

The story has original characters (well at least I haven’t seen them before in a Dan Brown book). It’s a scientific, action-adventure story set in the arctic and part of the US east coast. As with most of the other Dan Brown books I’ve read you have to suspend your disbelief and just go along for the ride and you’ll enjoy the story. Once again the heroes are discovering secrets, running for their lives, and up against dangerous people. This story has no historical facts (or fiction). You won’t learn anything new in this story, but it’s an entertaining summer read.
