I finished reading Deception Point. Over the last eighteen months, I have read all four of Dan Brown's books; Deception point is the weakest. The plot centers around a NRO [National Reconnaissance Office] employee. While I enjoyed the book, there are just too many outlandish plot twists.
I would rank Brown's four books in the following order: Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code, Digital Fortress and Deception Point. As I have said before, I think Angels and Demons is better than The Da Vinci Code.
Brown has indicated that he is writing another Robert Langdon thriller, a sequel to The Da Vinci Code. The new novel explores the hidden history of our nation's capital and is tentatively slated for release in summer 2005.
