Crime/Mystery - Blue Angel, White Shadow by Charlson Ong
I just want to bring to your attention a crime/mystery novel we co-published as an eBook, Blue Angel White Shadow by Charlson Ong. It won the National Book Award (here in the Philippines) last year.
Here's a short description:
Twenty-five year old lounge singer Laurice Saldiaga is found dead in her room at the Blue Angel Cafe and Bar in Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown. Inspector Cyrus Ledesma, a Chinese mestizo cop with a dark past is assigned to investigate the matter. The bar owner, Antonio Cobianco, is a known associate of Mayor Lagdameo Go-Lopez. Ledesma walks into a cauldron of intrigues, labyrinths, crumbling edifices, dogfights and suspects that include a jaded whiskey drinking female bar manager, a psychic journalist, a dyslexic piano player, a quick trigger pit bull owner, an aging saxophone player and Cyrus’ own uncle, Police Chief Ruben Jacinto.

CLARIFICATION: These are awards organized by the National Book Development Board, and is only for the Philippines. As their website states: "The National Book Development Board is the government agency mandated to develop and support the Philippine book publishing industry. Created by RA 8047 or the Book Publishing Industry Development Act in 1995."
The National Book Awards, on the other hand, has been around since 1950 and is a recognized world-wide award.
The two are separate awards, awarded by a different governing body and should not be confused.
This information is for clarification purposes only.
