Publisher's Summary

It's not just a game when you're running for your life.
Every night they tuned in to the nation's favourite prime-time TV game show. They all watched, from the sprawling slums to the security-obsessed enclaves of the rich. They all watched the ultimate live death game as the contestants tried to beat not the clock but annihilation at the hands of the Hunters.
Survive 30 days, and win the billion-dollar jackpot - that was the promise. But the odds were brutal and the game rigged. Best score so far was eight days. And now there was a new contestant, the latest running man, staking his life while a nation watched.

A great performance by Kevin Kenerly! Solid all the way through. HOWEVER. I'd seen the film of the running man about 20 years ago. Never knowing that it was based on a book. And a good book at that. So I was looking forward to this experience. Then bloody Stephen King starts the whole thing by spoiling the ending. THE TWIST ENDING! Within the first 5mins of the introduction! The audacity of the man! You write pulp fiction you fool! It's not of mice and men! We didn't do running man at school! It completely ruined, what would have been, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Please buy and enjoy. But skip past the first chapter to avoid the giant bombshell of a spoiler made by the pretentious arse.
