Publisher's Summary

Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett - an international best-selling author who is in a class of his own.
As a blizzard whips down from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus.
Several others are interested in his success, too: his children, at home for Christmas with their offspring, have their eyes on the money he will make; Toni Gallo, head of his security team and recently forced to resign from the police, is betting her career on keeping it safe; an ambitious local television reporter sniffs a story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs are on their way to steal it, with a client already waiting.
As the storm worsens and the group is held under siege by the elements, the emotional sparks crackle, and dark secrets are revealed that threaten to drive Stanley and his family apart forever.


What the Critics Say

"Human betrayal, medical terror and a race against time...this is gasp a minute stuff by a vintage practitioner." (Daily Mail)

Poor narration, OK story

I usually love Ken Follett, but it almost seems that the narrator was only chosen because of her Scottish accent (the story is set in Scotland) than for any other reason. The narration is monotone with few attempts at injecting a performance.

Perhaps because of that the story itself appears to be predictable and unengaging.
