Runner Publisher's Summary

In a crumbling futuristic society, Earth is only a myth, the technological advances of centuries have faded into distant memory, and space travel depends on a fleet of run-down, unreliable ships. Only the brave - or foolhardy - undertake such risky journeys. The brave, the foolhardy - and the runners…

Jak Rebo is one such runner, whose current job is to deliver a future religious leader to his people, while avoiding assassins. If that's not enough, he gets involved with a very beautiful woman who holds the secret to instantaneous travel between star systems - a secret that some would kill for.

With death waiting at every port, Jak soon realizes that this time he is running for his life…
