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.

Edge Of The Seat Thriller!
I loved this book, but it was a bit slow until the second half. All I can say is don't stop listening. The first half lays the groundwork and introduces all of the characters. The second half is very exciting and thrilling with one thing after another happening. The author doesn't leave us hanging, either. He wraps it up very nicely at the end by letting us know what happens to all of the characters. I found it to be very enjoyable.

Bio-thriller love story!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Whiteout is a combination who-dunnit, love story and thriller wrapped nicely into a Scottish backdrop. It's very good.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The techical aspects are actually a backdrop to the interpersonal conflicts. I like it when the authors don't overdose on technology.
