Marquand, John P.: Mr. Moto 6 - Stopover: Tokyo. V2. 7 June 2012

Mr. Moto Series Book 6 - Stopover: Tokyo
by John P. Marquand (1957)

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:
Mr. Marquand's suave, smiling expert on top level intrigue is waiting at the airport for the American Intelligence agents Jack Rhyce and Ruth Bogard, when they land in Tokyo on a secret mission. The wily Mr. Moto joins the chase after an internally clever and dangerous international spy ring.

Original title: Stopover: Tokyo; also called The Last of Mr. Moto. Originally published in serial form in the Saturday Evening Post, 1956/57 under the title Rendezvous in Tokyo.

Reformatted for readability (fonts, headers, chapter breaks, TOC, etc) and converted to mobi for the Kindle 3. Conversion done via Calibre.

[Edit 7 June]
Html code and .css file cleaned up (all the MS Word garbage removed).
Redid the TOC and various tags.

My pleasure! I've been converting books for some time now (although not on this site) and would be happy to take requests.

The 1957 film Stopover Tokyo starred Robert Wagner and Joan Collins.

The character of Mr Moto was dropped completely from the plot!
