Publisher Comments:

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, 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.

Ken Follette
Whiteout
For three days surrounding Christmas in the UK, terror reigns as a virus for which there is no known cure is stolen from a laboratory owned and operated by Stanley Oxenford, widowed and wealthy landowner in Scotland. Nothing is easy for the thieves or their pursuers, headed by Toni Gallo, as the snow piles up in the worst blizzard of the century. There is a little of every kind of drama in this story from romance to brutal killings to treachery within a family that threatens to tear it apart. This page turner will keep you engrossed to the very last word that provides a very satisfying ending.
