Not the best of Follett, but I enjoyed the book. I think I might have read it years ago. ( )

Ken Follett is an excellent storyteller and Whiteout is a page-turner that does not disappoint. A missing canister containing a deadly virus and a deadly snow storm make up the plot of this bio-terrorism novel. It is a riveting thriller full of romance, family relationships and company security. The characters are well-fleshed and believable. I found Follett's writing to be suspenseful and entertaining. I look forward to reading more Follett in the near future. I highly recommend this book to those who love suspense thrillers.

I thought this was interesting enough but not quite believable. Especially the ending of the book. Don't want to get into detail and spoil it. Nevertheless It kept my interest, I had to see the outcome. ( )
