About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Esperanza Angellini wanted to make a difference, and she thought she had found the vehicle to do just that. She joined former president Jimmy Carter's team dedicated to monitoring elections in Guatemala. The elections were made possible by a shaky truce ending a 36-year civil war that had resulted in the destruction of over 400 villages and a genocide program waged by the military that killed 200,000 Mayans, mostly innocent men, women and children civilians. Her eagerness to help make things right pulled her sister and eight brothers into a vortex of danger and terror that threatened to annihilate the entire family.

Deftly constructed at 380 pages, Thicker than Water is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Thrillers category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Thicker than Water meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $16.95.

Additionally, Thicker than Water can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
