    1. My exposure to political thrillers being limited to Robert Ludlum is my fault I am an unrepentant SciFi geek so I don t branch out a lot Which is why after striking up a budding friendship with Delphine Pontvieux I felt morally compelled to partake of her work and boy am I glad for it ETA Estimated Time of Arrest grabbed me with the instant familiarly I developed with the characters Within a couple well crafted sentences I knew who these people were The story of a pretty young man falsely accuse [...]

    3. Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally As I ve said here several times before, I think it unfair to directly compare the worth of a book by a full time writer on a major press with one by a part time self publishing author, if for no other reason than the tremendous amount of editorial advantages held by the former after all, a full time author signed to [...]

    5. They say that a debut author should write about what they know and Delphine Pontvieux has done just that she obviously knows a great deal about rock climbing and the Basque country, and her knowledge shines through as the Pyrenees mountains and climbing them forms an integral part of this fascinating and exciting political thriller based upon the activities of the Separatist Group ETA The story of their inception and rise without any bias on either side was handled very sensitively as well.I lov [...]

    6. Considering this was only a 2.99 Kindle download this was definitely the best literary bargain I ve come across outside of a library This is a fascinating story, very well written, and the kind of page turner that keeps you up late As much as I was enjoying the story I thought Faustine s personality seemed a little timid and her own self worth overly dependent on her relationship with Lartaun Minor complaint though and I certainly found myself rooting for her throughout One aspect I really liked [...]

    7. With a distinct political angle, this book was different from what I usually read, but I was hoping the intrigue and action would still result in an enjoyable story Unfortunately, the plot took so much time to start that I gave up There was a lot of history and back story given, but not enough of the current story.The main plot in the present day seemed to be Faustine s angst and teenage crush for Rafael It came across as very juvenile and annoying If it had been a smaller portion of the plot wi [...]

    8. ETA brought me enthusiastically back to something I had not done in over a decade Read a terrific story, wonderfully told, in an unusual location with a culture and historical background I had never known The fluidity with which Delphine moves between the genuine emotions of a love story, the descriptive details of landscapes I had never seen, the technical skills of a dangerous sport I d never try, and the historical motivation for each character s decision was fresh, fast paced and exhilaratin [...]

    9. I do not typically read fiction and especially mystery fiction but the author being from France is what interested me and what a fascinating surprise I would love to meet Delphine personally to learn about what made her write this book She certainly appears to have a great insight into the radical pressures of the pasts Spanish government, and an expanded knowledge of mountain climbing Delphine does an extraordinary job of engaging the reader in the events and the characters so that you feel yo [...]

    11. I tried really hard to finish this book The excerpt had me very intrigued, however when I started reading I began to realize this was not the book for me The author is very detail oriented and that just slowed down the pace considerably I struggled to get through the first half of it and eventually gave up.I have not completely written this author off If there is ever a time that I come across another book from this author, I will give it a shot.

    12. I couldn t escape the thought Hugo would write like this if he was alive today Each character was craftily drawn and evoked my empathy The theme was insightful, challenging and carefully woven into the plot Backstory was meted out patiently and blended with tension filled action Highly recommended.
