Delphine Pontvieux

I highly recommend Delphine Pontvieux’s impressive first novel ETA: Estimated Time of Arrest as a definite purchase to fulfill a variety of reading interests. Part political thriller, part romantic suspense, the novel is the perfect read for book clubs and for individual tastes, as well. Ms Pontvieux’s work captures the Basque conflict of nationalism that has involved Northern Spain and parts of Southwestern France since the 1960’s. The author has masterfully integrated this background with a compelling plot that is intriguing and engaging and rich in characterization and imagery. Readers will be captivated by the “twists and turns” of this real page-turner and will finish ETA with hopes of seeing a subsequent novel by Ms. Pontvieux sooner rather than later.
