Follett invades Robin Cook territory with a bio-thriller set in Scotland during a Christmas Eve blizzard. The yuletide reunion of the Oxenford clan at their remote estate is interrupted when a canister of a deadly virus is stolen from the research lab of patriarch Stanley Oxenford. The quartet of thieves has a rendezvous to sell the virus to a sinister client. But thieves and family are snowbound on the estate. As the roar of the storm echoes (an ominous sound effect), the battle between family and thugs escalates into a race against the clock. Barbara Rosenblat infuses the characters of this overpopulated story with such a distinctive personality and voice that each one is easily identifiable. This powerful production builds to a terrifying climax. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
