January 2011 Guest Editor Lisa Gardner on Jamie Freveletti...

Jamie won Best First Novel in 2010 from the International Thriller Writers for Running from the Devil. Devil begins with a plane crash that lands an ultra-marathoner (a woman who races 100+ miles) in the middle of dense Columbian jungle, where she must outwit dozens of crazed drug lords to save her fellow passengers. I thoroughly enjoyed Freveletti’s female action-hero, whose background makes her both compelling and credible.

Just terrific-full of thrills and tradecraft, pace and peril. An outstanding debut. -- Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of NOTHING TO LOSE Ten pages in, my heart was pounding-and the tension only grew from there. This is a breathless, hair-raising read, one of the most gripping thrillers I've read in a long, long time. -- Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Keepsake
