Running from the Devil

Running from the Devil: A Novel Running from the Devil: A Novel by Jamie Freveletti

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I don't read much of the "thriller" genre, but picked this up because there were some references to ultrarunning in the author blurb. Freveletti is a runner who has crewed on ultras, and got the idea for this book while working on one. It's the story of a scientist/distance runner who's on a hijacked plane that goes down in the jungles of Colombia, and has to use her scientific knowledge as well as her running training to survive a crazy mess of cartel intrigue, government rescue missions and the jungle itself. Good suspense, hinted-at then slowly revealed twists.
