Roadworks Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Roadworks

This is the story of a battle of wits between a Traffic Controller and an African terrorist outfit which brings Brussels to a standstill.

Set in a possible future for the capital of Europe, a city where all rail, road and underground traffic is computerised, Hugh Ryan, a Transport Authority controller, has to outwit Akila Kama, an African terrorist who has taken the city and many foreign heads of state hostage. His demands are simple, either the greatest humanitarian aid package is sent to Africa by the nations of the West, or their leaders die.
