Lance Ceniza Check out this new book - it is about the Philippines - the author is British but lived here for a long time. It is about political corruption, murder, betrayal, sex and has many twists and turns, it is brilliant - I really recomend that you read it. you will really enjoy it. bit.ly/UeX9ON
