"Running from the Devil" by Jamie Freveletti: A Thriller That Won't Quit

Pin It

Running from the devil Jamie Freveletti is a writer I've only recently discovered.  I received review copies of her latest book, "Running Dark" and her first thriller, "Running from the Devil" a couple of months ago. 

Because like a lot in my life right now, my reading is way behind schedule, I only got the chance to pick up "Running from the Devil" at the end of the summer.

Can I just say, I couldn't put it down. 

The action takes place after a plane crash in the Colombian jungle.  On board is Emma Caldridge, a cosmetics company chemist who becomes the sole escapee from a band of guerrillas who've taken the surviving passengers hostage.

An ultra-marathon runner, Emma has to fight injury, the elements, and her own fears to stay alive and evade capture.

A fabulous new female lead, who's also the star of Freveletti's latest, "Running Dark," Emma is a quick-witted biochemist who uses her knowledge from the laboratory as a weapon in her fight to survive.  The book is a roller coaster ride of a read, and if you love thrillers you won't go wrong with "Running from the Devil."

As soon as I get another break, "Running Dark" is next on my reading list.

And as we get closer to the holidays I'll have a great big book giveaway--yes, I know I promised one at the end of the summer, what can I say, I'm a cockeyed optimist when it comes to time management--which will include Freveletti's two books, "Uptown" by Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant and the latest from Diana Orgain.
