Publisher's Summary

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 deadly 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.

What the Critics Say

"Brown moves into new territory with his latest. It's an excellent thriller: a big yet believable story unfolding at breakneck pace, with convincing settings and just the right blend of likable and hateful characters. He's also done his research, folding in sophisticated scientific and military details that make his plot far more fulfilling than the norm." (Publishers Weekly)
"A dazzling high-tech adventure...With this latest story, Brown proves once again that he is among the most intelligent and dynamic of authors in the thriller genre." (Library Journal)
"This is pretty exciting stuff...and Brown certainly does have a knack for spinning a suspenseful yarn." (Booklist)

How to do six impossible things before lunch

Suspend all belief - a real roller coast ride - and I still haven't worked out how some of the escapes were made!! Definitely one for the long long haul - perhaps Australia and back twice. Enjoy it and don't try and believe any of it - except perhaps the politics!

Great book , but ...

This is a great book , a real rollercoaster story that is
gripping to the end.
However it is let down by the narrator.
He 'lisps' a little on each word begining with 'S' which can
get annoying on long listens and even pronounces words incorrectly in a couple of places (livened for example).
Overall despite his best efforts he does not ruin a cracking story.
