Marquand, John P.: Mr. Moto 5 - Last Laugh, Mr. Moto. V2. 7 June 2012

Mr. Moto Series Book 5 - Last Laugh, Mr. Moto
by John P. Marquand (1942)

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:
Disillusioned ex-Navy pilot Bob Bolles' carefree alcohol soaked days of drifting from port to port in the Caribbean come to an abrupt halt when he takes on paying passengers on his sailboat. The rich American tourist and his beautiful wife may not be who they seem to be, and their "Swedish" servant seems more like a rough and ready sailor than a butler. Why are they headed for the uninteresting and remote Mercator Island? Mr. Moto steps in when the action gets going, but will he come out of it with what he wants?

Originally published in serial form in Colliers, 1941 under the title of Mercator Island.
