Like no other suspense author in his genre, Follett reinvents the thriller with each new storyline. 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 converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, the research company’s director, has everything riding on the drug he is developing to fight the virus, but he isn’t the only one: his grown children, who have come to spend Christmas, have their eyes on the money it will bring; Toni Gallo, forced to resign from the police department in disgrace, is betting her career on keeping the drug safe; a local television reporter, determined to move up, has sniffed the story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs is on its way to steal it for a client already waiting, though what the client really has in mind is something that will shock them all.

As the storm worsens, the emotional sparks, jealousies, distrust, sexual attraction, and rivalries, crackle; desperate secrets are revealed; hidden traitors and unexpected heroes emerge. Filled with startling twists at every turn, Whiteout rockets Follett to a class by himself.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ben Lehrer | 1/17/2014

    " Fairly simple plot line without the twists you'd expect from a thriller. Still a decent page turner, but a bit adolescent compared to some of Follett's other works. Like a Dan Brown novel without the conspiracies. "

    " excellant one of Follet's best "

    " This was good book. Similar to Tom Clancy. It does have lots of sexual scenes and bad language, so be aware of that. I bought it in the airport because I needed another book to read for the flight home, and it is certainly a compelling story. If it wasn't for the unnecessary gratuitous sexuality, I would have given it 4 stars. "

    " I read this a long time ago, I couldnt put it down. In a nutshell its holiday time and there is a Wicked storm, a whiteout. There is a virus and a drug developed to stop the virus. Full of twists and turns, non stop action. "
