RUNNER is a well written little story, with good pacing and a perfect build up to the inevitable. The author has a way of continually developing the characters throughout the narrative, and I came to care about Kathy and root for her until the end.

You'll happily finish this story in one sitting...not just for its length, but because you won't be able to put it down!

I read Merrill Heath's short story, "Runner," in one sitting. Since I don't have a Kindle reader, I was able to download the Kindle edition to my smart phone. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Dinner was late because I had to know how the story ended. This story is so well written. Fast paced.

Merrill Heath knows how to engage the reader. He puts us in his characters' heads and hearts. I was rooting for Kathy. I felt like I WAS Kathy as she ran along, oblivious to the dangers that awaited her. Loved the whole set up. The pacing was spot on as was the dialogue. The villain came across as so believable. That's what made this story even more plausible.

I normally shy away from scary stories, but this one was too good to pass up. Plus, it has a great, satisfying ending. Just the right amount of detail without going overboard.

Great job. I look forward to more writing from Mr. Heath.

This is a terrific story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The writing sounds natural so it's easy to get into it. It's short enough to read in one sitting and I did.

Merrill Heath's earlier work, "Consequences" is, in my opinion, a fantastic book and I enjoyed it greatly and that's why I read, "Runner".

This was a great value ... terrific story for very little cost. Give it a try.
