'Pure nerve-shredding suspense from the first page to the last' Erin Kelly

'Blair Witch meets Fleabag ... pure mastery' Janice Hallett

'Dazzling' Riley Sager

Movie-making can be murder.

The project
Final Draft, a psychological horror, being filmed at a house deep in a forest, miles from anywhere in the wintry wilds of West Cork.

The lead
Former soap-star Adele Rafferty has stepped in to replace the original actress at the very last minute. She can't help but hope that this opportunity will be her big break - and she knows she was lucky to get it, after what happened the last time she was on a set.

The problem
Something isn't quite right about Final Draft. When the strange goings-on in the script start to happen on set too, Adele begins to fear that the real horror lies off the page...

'A roller-coaster ride and fun in every sense, I loved it!' Andrea Mara

'Will have you glued to your sunbed ... insists on being read in one sitting' Gloss

'Pure nerve-shredding suspense from the first page to the last. Once I'd started reading I could. Not. Stop.'
- Erin Kelly

'A scary, claustrophobic thriller that balances cold creeping tension with cracking wit - Blair Witch meets Fleabag - I laughed out loud then couldn't switch the light off! A horror about a horror film, set on a set, this is a gem of the genre, delivered with pure mastery.'
- Janice Hallett

'A ferociously ingenious suspense thriller ... brilliantly conceived and meticulously executed ... a masterful performance'
- Irish Times

'Catherine Ryan Howard is a master thriller writer and RUN TIME is up there with the best, as the movie set of nightmares she so evocatively conjures starts to turn on its lead actress. The twisty, ingenious plotting, and atmospheric location make for a deeply chilling and unputdownable read. I didn't want it to end!'

- Andrea Mara
