Saurav Chakraborty (sauravchakraborty) | 46 comments Dan Brown's " Deception Point" is a perfect example of fast paced narrative in the geo- environmental thriller genre. This one is different from his Langdon Series and gives us another side of his story telling mastery. Thoughts on the book from my blog:

Saurav Chakraborty (sauravchakraborty) | 46 comments " The Shepherd" by Frederick Forsyth is no short of an experiment in story-telling.
