The Builder is a detective novel written by Edith Tiempo, published in 2003. It was nominated by the National Library of the Philippines to the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards in 2005.


A physics professor at the Dumaguete University, Felix Acuna has his hands full especially with his family and soon-to-be-born child. Keeping up with those is his task to watch over the school administrator's son. One morning, he is forced to become a detective to track down a criminal and two missing documents to shed light on an unresolved crime.

The novel's characters are so real in their moral dilemmas and personal depths. The novel is more than a detective story but a treatise on being human.
