Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally written under the Richard Bachman pseudonym, Roadwork is now available completely repackaged and under all-time bestselling author Stephen King's name. In this gritty narrative, a lone man takes on the wheels of progress in a showdown of cataclysmic proportions. When a highway project puts him out of work and threatens to destroy his home, he has more than enough time on his hands to plot his revenge. Driving his wife and friends away with his obstinate refusal to give in, he pushes the powers-that-be to the limit, taking a stand against what he sees as a criminal act in progress. Building to a shattering climax, Roadwork is a suspenseful tale you won't soon forget!

Synopsis:

What happens when one good-and-angry man fights back is murder—and then some….

Bart Dawes is standing in the way of progress. A new highway extension is being built right over the laundry plant where he works—and right over his home. The house he has lived in for twenty years…where he has made love with his wife…played with his son….  But before the city paves over that part of Dawes life, hes got one more party to throw—and itll be a blast….

With an Introduction by the Author, “The Importance of Being Bachman”

Synopsis:

#1 bestselling master of suspense...

King's other half can be even creepier.

They're tearing down Bart Dawes's home, leveling his memories, and destroying his past, all for a new highway extension. Funny what that kind of progress can do to a man. Scary, too.
