Publisher's summary Edit

White: the perfect camouflage for ghosts.

White consumes the New Hampshire landscape, and troops move in on a survivalist cult following a spate of unnaturally severe blizzards. The Special Forces group, White Shadow, are searching for the missing fragments of a US Air Force jet, which crashed while engaged in top-secret test flights over the region.

The Doctor and Leela have arrived at quite literally the wrong time. Thanksgiving is approaching — traditionally a holiday all about home and family. But this year, all that is lost.

Lost: like the local community, in the grip of something far more sinister than a harsh winter. Like young Amber Mailloux, victim of a broken home that won't even settle in one place. Even White Shadow is lost, out of its depth and up against an enemy that not even the Doctor can find in this world of white.

An enemy that promises the bleakest of midwinters for the people of New Hampshire and, before springtime, the end of life on Earth...
