Audio Book Summary

'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.

    The problem that I have with any book by Ken Follet is that the Pillars books were SO GREAT that the others I have tried just end up bland and hollow in comparison. This book was entertaining enough, if somewhat bland.

    Not Follett's best. Very slow getting started. Story finally developed and the ending was great.

    A fast paced book with great narration. Great twists and turns yet at times predictable. I highly recommend it.

    This book is one of those that makes you look forward to getting in the car to listen. You can't help but like the characters, and every twist has you wondering what will happen next. Only the romance was a bit hard to buy.

    I really enjoyed this book. It kept me wanting to listen to more. I thought the ending was just right, I have been in a situation like that before where you're not certain you like someone until unseen circumstances bring you together. I liked the ending. I would definitely re-rent this book.
