Emma Caldridge, a chemist for a cosmetics company, is en route from Miami to BogotA when her plane is hijacked and spins out of control into the mountains near the Venezuelan border. Thrown unhurt from the wreckage, she can do nothing but watch as guerrillas take the other passengers hostage. An endurance marathon runner, Emma silently trails the guerrillas and their captives, using her athletic prowess and scientific knowledge to stay alive. Those skills become essential when she discovers an injured passenger, secret government agent Cameron Sumner, separated from the group. Meanwhile, as news of the hijacking breaks in Washington, the Department of Defense turns to Edward Banner, former military officer and current CEO of a security consulting firm, for help. But finding Emma and Sumner is only the beginning, as Banner starts to realize that Emma was on a personal mission when the plane went down.

Professional reviews

"This debut thriller by Jamie Freveletti will soon have her running with the big-name writers. A trial lawyer and marathon runner, Freveletti weaves a fast listen. Adding narrator Bernadette Dunne to the mix ensures that listeners will come away completely satisfied. While enroute to Colombia, heroine Emma escapes from a plane hijacking while her fellow passengers are held hostage. With a marathon runner's perseverance, she finds a government agent and pursues the hijackers with an unmatched tenacity. The story also has a few subplots to keep listeners on edge. Dunne's glib narration keeps pace with the fast-moving story, and her accents are credibly realistic. Thanks to both author and narrator, this mystery grabs listeners right from the beginning and holds on to the end. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
