I enjoy Dan Brown stories with one but ...
To my mind he pushes the bounds of believability to the extreme.
In Deception Point he has three civilians escape world class special forces in the Arctic Circle by
A: using a weather balloon as a wind sail to speed them across the ice
B: They drop onto the end of a glacier which then calves off into the sea
C: They survive this, somehow remaining on the (now) iceberg and tap SOS on the ice
D: a passing nuclear submarine picks them up.

A lot of people call this 'jumping the shark', the scenes stretching the storiues credibility to breaking point.

Sorry, I nearly gave the book up at that point.
