"Everyone likes a page-turner, and Follett is the best." —The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A hell of a storyteller" (Entertainment Weekly), #1 New York Times bestselling author Ken Follett reinvents the thriller with each new novel. But nothing matches the intricate knife-edge drama of Whiteout. . . .
A missing canister of a deadly virus. A lab technician bleeding from the eyes. Toni Gallo, the security director of a Scottish medical research firm, knows she has problems, but she has no idea of the nightmare to come.
As a Christmas Eve blizzard whips out of the north, several people, Toni among them, converge on a remote family house. All have something to gain or lose from the drug developed to fight the virus. As the storm worsens, the emotional sparks—jealousies, distrust, sexual attraction, rivalries—crackle; desperate secrets are revealed; hidden traitors and unexpected heroes emerge. Filled with startling twists at every turn, Whiteout rockets Follett into a class by himself.
I have been raking a lot of these pseudo writers over the coals lately about the boring drivel they expect customers to pay for. However, I am happy to report that Ken Follett has written another entertaining book, again showing the utmost respect for his audience. Great read.
This book is alomost as good as his others. Not as much suspension as others. Not as much action either. But still a good read.
Loved this book my first by this author. It was recommend to me by a friend, I was not disappointed. the story took alot of of twist and turns keeping you locked in.
