With a surname like his, Gerard Readett was born to become a writer.
His life has been spent bouncing between England and Belgium. At the age of five he left London and moved to Belgium where he became bilingual English/French. He returned to England to do a Joint Honours degree in Computing and Economics. Once again he went back to Belgium to work in the Network Operations department of a large credit card company. His job brings him into contact with people from many different nationalities.
He loves to travel to see other cultures and traditions, is particularly interested in Pre-columbian civilizations like the Maya, Aztecs and Incas and Ancient Egypt. Also shows an interest in wildlife, nature and astronomy. Enjoys reading Sci-Fi, Mysteries and Thrillers.
In a city where all rail, road and underground traffic are computerised, Hugh Ryan, a Transport Authority controller, generally has a very boring job.
In his wildest dreams he couldn't have envisioned it'd be his job to drag the hijacked city out of absolute gridlock by outwitting Akila Kama, an African terrorist who's taken the city and kidnapped foreign heads of state. While all traffic inside the city is at a standstill, a local crimelord working with the terrorist has decided to make matters worse by double-crossing Kama... and there's no doubt that there's a mole somewhere in Transport Authority helping him.
