"He may be a giant but giants have been licked before. Don't forget Goliath. The bigger they are, the harder they fall." Eddie Lewis, former student of Princeton and would-be playwright, never expected to make his living writing lies. But that's precisely what he does to pay his rent: Eddie is a manipulator of headlines, an inventor of hyperbole, all on behalf of his boss Nick Latka and his dealings in the boxing business. Nick's latest project is the massive Toro Molina, discovered in the Argentine and now being primed for the fight - or at least, for a few elaborate performances. For in the world of 1940s boxing, fixing the game is all too easy. Latka and his team of promoters, punch-drunk ex-fighters and professional gamblers play the unwitting Molina for all they can get. As 'the Giant of the Andes' is bled on the ropes by the rapacious criminals of the fighting game, Eddie is forced to examine himself, his principles, and the decline and fall of the 'manly art' of boxing.
