Stephen King writing as Richard Bachman
"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 Network. Ben soon finds himself selected as a contestant on the biggest and the best game show that the Network has to offer: <i>The Running Man</i>, 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 to do things they never thought possible -- and Ben Richards is willing to go the distance in this ultimate game of life and death." --Back cover
