Running from the Devil by Jamie Freveletti

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.

Synopsis

Running from the Devil by Jamie Freveletti

This is a high-octane debut thriller - involving a hijacked plane, guerrillas, and a volatile biological weapon - sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Reviews

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
