Book description
In the underground setting of a post-apocalyptic world, humans are forced to live deep underground. Their well-being depends on a select group of men called Surface Runners who dare to set foot on the surface to recover supplies and spare parts needed for the survival of humanity. But these brave men's Run time is limited. Anyone spending over forty minutes on the surface meets death. For the enemy controlling the surface is fierce and unforgiving. And their leader is seemingly unreachable and indestructible... Coinciding with a massive attack that decimates a number of underground Colonies, Runners Command initiates an experiment that many expect to become humanity's ultimate weapon against the surface enemy. An experiment that will make humanity's return to the surface possible. A human experiment whose short life-span and dexterity is the key to their salvation. Get ready for an Action Packed science-fiction story for all ages.

Project yourself in a future where in the aftermath of the Nogaplan people are forced to live deep underground. In this Action Packed novel, but for the courageous few Surface Runners who risk their lives to run to the surface and recover much needed "Packages" that help the colonies to survive, humanity never sees the light of day. And if courage isn't the only quality needed to survive a Run, luck, speed and know-how help a man to beat the dreaded clock. For a Runner has only forty minutes Run time before he's detected, hunted down and destroyed. Project yourself into this underground world and imagine now the experiment concocted by Runners Command. A human experiment designed to outsmart that clock and to help humanity to return to the surface.
