Donald J. Hauka is a versatile writer from B.C. His first novel, Mr. Jinnah: Securities, was adapted for television and broadcast on CBC in 2003, earning a nomination for a Gemini award. Hauka's second novel, She Demons, was published in 2010. He lives in New Westminster, B.C.
In the third Mister Jinnah adventure, Hakeem Jinnahâ€™s smoking hot story could be his last.
The Tribuneâ€™s editor-in-chief can kiss Hakeem Jinnahâ€™s ass goodbye! His bags are packed and heâ€™s off to Africa as king of his own Burger Palace. That is, until a charred, dismembered body is discovered in a pizza oven. The lure of one last front-page byline is too much for Jinnah to resist ... even if it turns out to be his own obituary.
Pizza 911 puts the perpetually puffing, politically incorrect Jinnah on the trail of a vicious killer in a chase that takes him from Vancouver to Tanzania. Negotiating a deadly labyrinth of deceit, betrayal, and long-kept secrets, the neurotic newsman has to use his entire reporting repertoire â€” and then some â€” to get to the truth. Bikers, drugs lords, shadowy assassins, and a mysterious, beautiful woman are all pieces in a complex puzzle that Jinnah must put together before itâ€™s too late for him, his family, and even his newspaper.
Based on the Gemini Awardâ€“nominated made-for-television movie, Pizza 911 delivers.
