A desperate man attempts to win a reality TV game where the only objective is to stay alive in this #1 national bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman.

"Tomorrow at noon, the hunt begins. Remember his face!"

Ben Richards is a desperate man. With no job, no money, no way out, and a young daughter in need of proper medical attention, he must turn to the only possibility of striking it rich in this near-future dystopian America: participating in the ultraviolent TV programming of the government-sanctioned Games Network. Ben soon finds himself selected as a contestant on the biggest and the best that the Games Network has to offer: The Running Man, a no-holds-barred thirty-day struggle to stay alive as public enemy number one, relentlessly hunted by an elite strike force bent on killing him as quickly as possible in front of an audience all too eager to see that happen. It means a billion dollars in prize money if he can live for the next month. No one has ever survived longer than eight days. But desperation can push a person do things they never thought possible--and Ben Richards is willing to go the distance in this ultimate game of life and death....

"Under any name King mesmerizes the reader." --Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

Merely by tickling the keys of his word-processor King can make the flesh creep half a world away (The Times)

Stephen King is one of those natural storytellers...getting hooked is easy (Frances Fyfield, Express)

Book Description:

The name on the covers was Bachman. But the imagination could only belong to one man: Stephen King.
