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.
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.
