From #1 international bestselling author Ken Follett, the gripping thriller Whiteout...
Like no other suspense author in his genre, 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.

From the Paperback edition.

Could not put this one down.
July 9th, 2014
This virus lab tale is totally engaging. It is also the sort of thing that could happen. We humans try to plan so carefully, but we can't control lots of things. It is not just a warning though, it is about people and how they react under pressure. Some come through and some fail very badly. The author puts in good twists and fun ways folks make do with what is available.

Beautifully crafted, wittily plotted and just a perfect book for any occasion. Takes you from reality of daily grind and then takes you back, but you now realize that you have changed. A true masterpiece of detective writing .
