Long hours of driving on the frigid interstate have taken their toll. In a split second, Frank Sawyer's car drifts and clips a passing van on the otherwise empty Montana highway. In the aftermath of the wreck, Sawyer encounters a gruesome scene: the van's passenger did not survive. But it isn't the crash that took his life—he's been shot. Before Sawyer can assess what's happened, he's struck from behind. When he regains consciousness, he discovers that his attacker is gone, his car is missing—and the police have named him their prime suspect in the dead man's murder.
The harsh winter weather bears down as the chaos unfolds, and Sawyer finds himself trapped in the small town of Cluff. And law enforcement is keeping him firmly in their sights, so there's no possibility of escape. As he struggles to clear his name, Sawyer looks to the past for answers, becoming embroiled in a decades-old mystery that may hold the key to proving his innocence.

I gave this book a shot on a whim. The plot sounded interesting enough for a fun read, but it plays out slow for being rather short and never really develops the characters to the point of being fully invested.
After a really good book you are generally left with thoughts, questions, introspection, or retrospection. After finishing this book I wasn’t intrigued to think over the plot in my mind and piece things together, I was somewhat glad to be done.
The premise is interesting and I really wanted it to all come together but it never made it.
Thanks for this novel. It’s a great story. The quirky main character is likeable and his light-hearted dialogue make the drama and violence all ok. I’d love a series with the same main character ! Thanks
Stuck at home, sick as a dog, needing something to distract my mind.... I found WHITEOUT by Brett Cain. Awesome book! I loved the suspense. I loved the way the main character reasoned things out in his mind. Sometimes his choices shocked me and other times I cheered him on! With masterful impulse control combined with pure human emotion, he steps through a blizzard of murder and mystery and manages to sort out the whole thing. Brett Cain, BRAVO! Please write more!
I love to read suspense books when I know I’m perfectly safe and comfortable at home. Whiteout is a suspense book by a first time author and it’s really good.
I like the way the author writes. The way he writes, I’m able to see pictures in my mind, almost like a movie. His scenes that included a fight were intense! It was obvious that the author had experience with fighting.
Frank is the main character in this one. He’s just returned from a mission. Frank was left a sweet car by a man he ministered to before his mission. So he decides to go for a joyride. He could never have imagined the trouble he could get in in the middle of nowhere Montana in a snow storm.
But trouble he found. And it continues to find him, over and over again. Of course, he does kind of go looking for it, so that’s not overly surprising. But that’s what makes the plot of this one so interesting. You never know what danger is lurking around the next corner. There was plenty of it. And I never guessed just who the bad guy was, until it was revealed.
This one has a crazy good plot. Except for one thing, I didn’t like the ending. I’m a happy ending type of girl. This book was not quite that. I really liked everything besides the ending. The plot was great, the characters too.
If you love suspense books, you’ll love this one!
This book was interesting. I don't normally like a lot of internal thought or dialogue, and this book was full of it. It was one that I kept putting down but had to keep picking back up. The plot was interesting and I like the characters. It was obvious the author had extensive knowledge on a couple of things in the book. That might have been what kept me reading. I wanted to see if I was correct in my assumption of why Frank felt a certain way, and it wasn't until almost the quarters of the way through the book. The ending . . . didn't feel right for me. I can see why it happened that way, however, it left me wanting a better conclusion. I would recommend it to most people.
Whiteout was a huge, pleasant surprise. When I initially read the book description I was on the fence about reviewing it. But, I'm so glad I took the chance.
Sawyer goes by his last name (thankfully, because Frank makes him sound like an old man). I don't recall that it said his age, but he had just gotten home from a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the average age for a returning male missionary is 20. But, I think it mentioned that he was older than that.
Sawyer is absolutely hilarious. I really wasn't expecting that, but his comments kept the story light in the midst of the suspense. He was so different from what I'd expect a recently returned missionary to be like. The author gave little hints here and there about Sawyer's past, but even at the end of the story there was still quite a bit of mystery to him. Sometimes that drives me nuts, but I felt like I got enough information for the particular mystery of the story to be solved, and I would love to have more stories about Sawyer and his adventures where I get to learn more about his past.
Whiteout has a Jason Bourne movie feel to it (which I'm a big fan of so it's no surprise that I enjoyed the book). With the returned missionary aspect, you might expect a religious story, but it's not at all. I think mention of that only adds to Sawyer being a moral person with a strong determination to right the wrong he stumbled upon.
I really enjoyed reading Whiteout and I can definitely see myself reading this one again. Debut author Brett Cain did an excellent job, and I hope he continues writing.
There is quite a bit of violence throughout the story, but the author presented it in a way that wasn't overly graphic.

An absolute delight, every well conceived word!
Best book I’ve ever read! I love this author a lot!
One of the best suspense novels I’ve ever read. Tons of mystery and thrill and so much fun to read. Get this book!
