If you like action-packed stories, you should grab author Jamie Freveletti's Running from the Devil: A Novel. The story: ultramarathon runner and chemist Emma Caldridge is on her way to Colombia for reasons not disclosed until late in the book. The passenger jet is hijacked and crashes deep in drug cartel territory, and guerillas take the surviving passengers hostage; Emma is thrown clear of the wreck and escapes capture. She has the endurance and survival skill needed to make her way out of the …

Rough edges abound and the dialog often seems stilted. The plot is far from smooth and credible. But the characters are a lot of fun, especially our hero (heroine is passe, no?), Emma Caldridge is a biochemist for a cosmetics company, an ultramarathoner and a lot more than that, so much so that Emma is an engaging hero and that makes the book readable.     The plane Emma is on crashes in the Columbian jungle, the victim of a botched hijacking Emma and her seat are catapulted …

This is an excellent nail-biting novel by a first time author. The bulk of the action takes place in the jungle (or rainforest) of South America, where a group of guerillas have taken the survivors of an airplane crash prisoner. The heroine manages to avoid capture and follows the trail of the guerillas, hoping to somehow find her way to freedom.    The plot I've outlined above is a mere snippet of what goes on in this book. There is enough action and excitement to fill several …

Black belt, ultramarathoner and trial attorney, the author Jamie Freveletti doesn't seem like someone you'd want to mess with. She imparts this toughness to Emma, the female protagonist of this novel. That's not to say that she is a Rambo, the way that many tough guys are portrayed, just strong and resourceful.     We also see the Washington connections and power as well as Colombian drug cartels and sadistic thugs, engineered viruses and plane crashes all the ingredients of …
