Travel a road of horrors with Stephen King's alter ego Richard Bachman.
In the near future, where America has become a police state, one hundred boys are selected to enter an annual contest where the winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life.
The game is simple - maintain a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings, and you're out - permanently.
