    1. Where I got the book: freebie at a networking event, author present but for some reason it never occurs to me to get Jamie to sign her books.I feel like I should be nicer, really; I like Jamie Freveletti. But I'm just the wrong reader for these books; the point of the thriller genre escapes me. I mean, you read a book because it gives you something; in my case, I like historicals because I like to think about the past, and mysteries because I love trying to figure things out ahead of the sleuth. [...]

    2. This is the follow-up to last year's debut novel "Running From The Devil". Once again we have Emma Caldridge, brilliant chemist and ultramarathon runner; Edward Banner of the very powerful security company Darkview; Richard Stark of the mega-corporation Price, and Special Agent Cameron Sumner. However, there is WAY too much going on in this book for us to do more than acknowledge their familiarity before the action is up and roaring and pages are being turned at a blistering pace. All wound up t [...]

    3. 3.5 stars A book about a doctor who is also a ultra marathon runner gets injected with something to see what it will do to her. This starts happening around the world to other people. At the same time Somali pirates try to take a cruise ship that supposedly has something on board that shifty people want. I think you could read this book without reading the first in the series and still enjoy the story. It is fast paced with lots of action. I like how this author has combined her love of running [...]

    4. An excellent readThis is the second installment of the running series. Since I read the first immediately before this, I am not sure how it would fare as an independent read. As an action packed thriller , it is first rate. There is Emma, a tough ultra marathon runner chemist who seems both brave and vulnerable. Not being able to fire a gun helps. The hero is a special ops sniper who seems like the ultimate good guy, although his taciturn character doesn't create too much development. Then there [...]

    5. It took a few pages to get into this book, but once it hooked me, I couldn't put it down! Emma Caldridge rocks as the decisive, smart and brave heroine who keeps her wits in emergencies and does her job regardless of the danger. This book is a fast read with short chapters and an engaging flow. I'm excited to read book #3 in this series!

    6. As I very much enjoyed Running with the Devil (Emma Caldridge #1), I eagerly got my hands on Running Dark. However, the plotting felt uneven and the various situations of intrigue were hollow. An interesting concept, but not fully satisfying.

Der größte Teil der Strecke ist schon überstanden und Emma sowie die anderen Läufer werden immer erschöpfter.

    9. Chemist Emma Caldridge is in the middle of running an ultra-marathon in South Africa when a car bomb explodes right next to her.

    10. I really enjoyed this book especially having read her first book, Running from the Devil, the week before. Running Dark picks up where the first book left off so I strongly encourage readers to read them in order - although the author provides enough background so the book can standalone I am not sure it would have been as much fun to read. In the latest book, Emma (an ultramarathoner and chemist), Sumner (an agent with a drug taskforce of South America), and Banner (head of Darkview security ag [...]

    16. After reading this author's first book, Running from the Devil I had to read the second one. She showed so much potential in her first thriller that I wanted to see how it played out.Wow! This was an excellent thriller involving Somali pirates, a cruise ship with a mysterious cargo, and lots of action. I mentioned before how nice it was to read a thriller with a competent female hero and this is true here. Emma will stop at nothing to ensure the success of her mission, even flying into Mogadishu [...]

Chemist Emma Caldredge, an enthusiastic ultra runner, is stuck with something like an EpiPen during the aftermath of the bombing and finds herself compelled to keep running -- on injuries that have begun to heal before her eyes.Caldredge's attempts to find out what the drug happens to be intertwine with two other subplots: a group of Somali pirates attacking a cruise ship and a c [...]

    19. Running DarkBy Jamie FrevelettiThis book was received from Library Thing in the Early Reviewers program.Without reading her first book “Running from the Devil”, I plunged into her second book and felt that it could stand alone. A fast paced thriller that right from the beginning, has you guessing what is taking place after our heroine, Biochemist Emma Caldridge is stabbed with an epi-pen during a marathon race in Africa. What was she shot up with? As she rushes to find answers, we are caught [...]

    20. Running Dark was the second book that I read written by Jamie Freveletti and it was even better than Running From The Devil. Running Dark's storyline starts off from Running With The Devil but can easily be read on its own.Emma Caldridge is in South Africa running an ultramarathon when a car explodes and sends her flying into the dirt. Although dazed and confused she becomes aware that someone has just injected a syringe into her. She finishes the race and orders blood tests and contacts Edward [...]

    21. Thoroughly enjoyable fast paced suspense story of a runner chemist who has a previous bond with a Edward Banner who works for security company "Darkview". Written before Somali pirates capturing cruise ships came onto the news, this is a thriller for those who ordinarily would not read thrillers. So much happens all over the continent by people who couldn't care less if they were in danger or had to put someone else in danger. The main theme is about a drug which may enhance life or kill if give [...]

When Emma approaches Edward Banner the head of Darkview a security company. He already has his hands full, thanks to some Somali pirates attacking a cruise ship in the Gulf of Aden- A ship which carries a weapon that he need [...]

    23. Pretty much standard escapism, except this is from (mostly) the point of view of a chick. That's something new, and adds a little freshness to the whole corporate terrorism angle. Pretty much everyone in this book is a badass, which could be annoying, but it's done without too much shoving that down your throat, so it works. This one was a bit slower than the first book, but that happens. And the level of ridiculosity was kind of strong at times, but that also made it kind of fun, so it balanced [...]

    25. I was very happy to have received this book from a giveaway since I read the first Emma Caldwell book and really liked it. The author didn't stop with the first book in runaway action. From the very beginning the characters take off and there's no let up. I like how the author is developing the relationship between characters very slowing, it makes it more believable and interesting. The author got the Somali scenes dead on according to a National Geographic article I read on Somalia. The endin [...]

So, she agrees to get on the ship and try to help him and identify whatever the substance is i [...]

    27. I won Running Dark through First Reads. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a pulse pounding thriller, literally from the first page to the last. The chapters are short, each focusing on one of the main characters, switching from one point of view to the other. This creates an even more exciting feeling for the reader. The characters are well developed, although as I was reading I often wished I had read the author's debut first as it made frequent references to it. Still, it did not get [...]

    28. This is another action-packed, interesting and exciting book in the series by Jamie Freveletti. Emma Caldridge is a biochemist, widow and ultra-marathon runner whose life gets turned upside down by the intrigues in the pharmaceutical industry, even though her main area of focus is cosmetics. Having met Cameron Sumner when she was held captive in Columbia, Emma's life now is even more adventurous and dangerous.These books are thrilling and the characters are complex and it is good to see men and [...]

    29. I got off to a slow start on this book by a year but I gave it a 2nd chance because I do not leave a book unfinished. It was one of my mother's rules I always follow. God rest her soul. This was kind of a big business thriller where the politicians are involved in the medical industry for monetary gain. An experimental drug has been stolen & is about to be sold to the highest bidder or at the very least the competion destroyed after they have been lured to a cruise ship that is about to be b [...]
