Marquand, John P.: Mr. Moto 2 - Thank You, Mr. Moto. V2. 7 June 2012
by John P. Marquand (1936)
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.
Cynical American expatriate Tom Nelson has "gone native" in the fabled ancient city of Peking. He is stirred out of his complacency when he is caught up in events involving a ruthless Chinese Warlord from the north, the expansionist Japanese Empire, stolen Chinese art masterpieces, and Eleanor Joyce, a lovely American on a secret mission. Add to this mix the implacable, ever polite Mr. Moto: will Tom Nelson find his way out of all this?
