An injured lab technician, a missing canister. Toni Gallo, the attractive new head of the security team operating at the local pharmaceutical-research company, knows she has problems, but she has no idea of the nightmare to come.
As his family converges on a remote farmhouse in Scotland for the Christmas period. Stanley Oxenford is a worried man. Everything is riding on a new drug he has developed to fight a lethal virus; all have something to gain with the money he’s going to make. Toni Gallo, too, is out to prove herself as a woman up to her job. Then a blizzard whips out of the north, and as the storm worsens, the emotional sparks – jealousies, distrust and sexual attraction – 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.
This was another book I started and just kept turning the pages. The author did a good job of developing the characters and they came alive before your eyes. I found myself screaming “I can’t believe he did that!”. Great book.
