Marquand, John P.: Mr. Moto 1 - No Hero. V2. 7 June 2012

Mr. Moto Series Book 1 - No Hero
by John P. Marquand (1935)

Mr. Moto is a fictional Japanese secret agent created by the American author John P. Marquand (November 10, 1893 – July 16, 1960). He appeared in six novels by Marquand published between 1935 and 1957. Marquand initially created the character for the Saturday Evening Post, which was seeking stories with an Asian hero after the death of Charlie Chan's creator Earl Derr Biggers.

Synopsis:
American aviator Casey Lee is, indeed, no hero, but a rather bitter and drunken former WWI ace now stuck doing flying stunts. He's in Tokyo to fly a plane across the Pacific for a cigarette company looking for cheap publicity. When that falls through and he makes some derogatory remarks about America, a dapper Japanese gentleman, Mr. Moto, helps him back to his room. Soon. Moto, an agent of the Imperial Japanese government, and his luscious White Russian assistant, have enlisted Casey's help in an espionage plot which, to Casey's eventual shame, may not be in America's best interests.

This, the first of the Mr. Moto adventures, was originally serialized in the Saturday Evening Post from March 30th to May 4, 1935, as Mr. Moto Takes A Hand, then published as the novel, No Hero in 1935 and then as the novel Your Turn, Mr. Moto in 1937.
