Marquand, John P.: Mr. Moto 3 - Think Fast, Mr. Moto. V2. 7 June 2012

Mr. Moto Series Book 3 - Think Fast, Mr. Moto
by John P. Marquand (1937)

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:
Young Wilson Hitchings is ready to take his place in the venerable family firm of "Hitchings Brothers, Bankers and Comimission Merchants: Honolulu, Shanghai, Canton". His first real assignment is to travel to Hawaii and deal with the "Hitchings Plantation", a gambling house started by a black sheep of the family and maintained after his death by his lovely daughter, Eva Hitchings. Wilson's orders are to shut the place down before it does further damage to the staid family firm's image. Little does he realize that the plantation is the center of international intrigue involving Mr. Moto (of course).
