Of Giants and Other Men by Caspar Peek Giveaway! (Open internationally!)

Of Giants and Other Men
Caspar Peek

Better to live a coward than die a hero.

These are the words of Tomás Delacorte’s mother, spoken from the bitter dregs of her own life. It’s 1934 and Tomás is five years old when his father’s ashes are delivered to their stately home in Leon, Nicaragua. Avenging the murder becomes an obsession that follows Tomás into manhood, his only consolation the camaraderie of his cousin and sworn blood-brother, Fausto.

Steering away from politics and the factions of war, Tomás becomes a doctor living a quiet life, while Fausto embraces his military career with a passion that earns him the nickname Lieutenant Knife. The cousins remain close... until Tomás falls in love. That day so long ago, when he and Fausto mingled blood and pledged their destinies, will soon come back to haunt them. Too late, they realize it is blood that binds them, and blood that will ultimately tear them apart.

Love, betrayal, honor and sacrifice, are masterfully woven into this story which depicts both the horror and beauty of the human heart.
