With a movie forthcoming, I had been hearing a lot of buzz about this book and wanted to see what it was all about. Whiteout follows Carrie Setko, a US Marshall who has ended up in Antarctica. Things are monotonous and dwarfed by the weight and expanse of all that white. Monotonous that is, until a researcher is discovered bludgeoned on the ice. Under pressure from her boss and the changing seasons, Carrie must unravel the murder mystery before it is too late.
As a mystery, it is fast-paced and brief. But Rucka has created fascinating characters and offers plot twists that are quite unexpected. The artwork is quite interesting: at times messy and at other time beautiful. I really enjoyed how the illustrator explored the concept of a "whiteout" and how that relates to the story. Whiteout is haunting mystery that is over too soon and the artwork is well worth a look.--Brita
