Publisher's Summary

Jealousies, distrust, and hidden rivalries uncover dark secrets when a dozen vials of a deadly virus go missing.

As a blizzard whips out of 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 laid under siege by the elements, the emotional sparks crackle and dark secrets are revealed that threaten to drive Stanley and his family apart for ever.

    "Thrilling"

    What a fantastic story with many twists and turns along the way. The characters are brought to life by the delightful narration of David Tennant, and I found myself willing them to succeed. I normally avoid abridged versions of audiobooks, but this one works well, without feeling as if I had missed anything important. I would highly recommend this book.

    "Fantastic"

    I was there with them every step of the way, activated by what was going to happen next. Didn't want to stop listening when I turned off the engine on my way to work. David Tenant was excellent.

    What did you like most about Whiteout?

    Did not know what to expect. Unfortunately I only had the abridged version and wished I had had the whole story.

    Really enjoyed this book as I have listened to several others from the same author.

    Highly recommended with all the twists with the characters.


    What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

    Great accent and he did all the voices very convincingly

    "Very average"

    Storyline and writing were very average and predictable, only made interesting by David Tenant's excellent narration.

    "A rattling good thriller"

    This is an exciting story very well read by Mr Tennant. I particularly liked the way the author dealt with the problems caused to a modern thriller writer by the advent of the mobile phone.
