A gripping novel from National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin, Cave and Shadows follows a man named Jack Henson, an American expatriate from Davao. Jack never
imagined he would ever agree to do a favor for his ex- wife. But when his stepdaughter, Nenita Coogan's body is found naked and lifeless in a locked-down cave, Jack goes
undercover to investigate the case and catch the killer. Set in seedy Manila of the 1970s, Cave and Shadows explores the themes of identity and history, corruption and colonialism.
