ETA - Estimated Time of Arrest (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 09, 2010 07:43PM
Description: WRONG PLACE… After participating in a pro-separatist march that turned violent in January of 1992, 21-year-old Lorenzo Lartaun Izcoa is wrongly charged with the fatal bombing of a police station in his home town. Irun is a small city located in the heart of the Basque country, trapped between France and Spain, and struggling for independence. Lartaun finds himself on the Spanish Secret Service’s “most wanted” list, branded an active member of the Basque terrorist group ETA. He has no choice but to flee his country. Two years later, Lartaun’s childhood friend bursts back into his life. In exchange for a “small favor,” he offers him a passport and the chance to return to Europe under a new identity. Lartaun seizes the opportunity. …WRONG TIME Back in Europe, hiding away in a commune in the French Pyrenees Mountains, Lartaun meets Faustine, a young French environmentalist. As their relationship renews his belief in a future worth fighting for, Lartaun realizes, albeit too late, that the favor he owes his friend is not so “small” after all. FREEDOM COMES AT A STEEP PRICE HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO PROTECT YOURS?

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Delphine. It's greatly appreciated. I got your notice and I will be sure to check out your book. Since you have an iPad, if you love a good mystery, I'd be happy to send you a FREE COPY of my first novel called FORBIDDEN STEPS. It's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Just email me at and let me know. Then I'll send you a file which you can add to you iTunes Library. Then just plug in your iPad and it'll show up in iBooks. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.

Also, here's the link to my YouTube promo vid.

Enjoy and have a wonderful day, Ed
