Beschreibung

Filled with startling twists, Whiteout is the ultimate knife-edge drama from Ken Follett - an international best-selling author who is in a class of his own.
As a blizzard whips down from the north on Christmas Eve, several people converge on a remote family house. Stanley Oxenford, director of a pharmaceutical research company, has everything riding on a drug he is developing to fight a lethal virus.
Several others are interested in his success, too: his children, at home for Christmas with their offspring, have their eyes on the money he will make; Toni Gallo, head of his security team and recently forced to resign from the police, is betting her career on keeping it safe; an ambitious local television reporter sniffs a story, even if he has to bend the facts to tell it; and a violent trio of thugs are on their way to steal it, with a client already waiting.
As the storm worsens and the group is held under siege by the elements, the emotional sparks crackle, and dark secrets are revealed that threaten to drive Stanley and his family apart forever.

Great story

A good story from a master. It can't quite be put in the same category as The Pillars of the Earth, but good suspense, great characters. And Sally is a great reader as well.
