Mister Jinnah: Securities

A Mister Jinnah Mystery

Published March 2001

Description

Hakeem Jinnah enjoys an ordinary life of working the Vancouver Tribune’s crime beat, flirting with women, seeking interested investors in a mail-order-bride scheme, and driving around in his satellite-guided Love Machine. But when he and another Tribune reporter begin competing to cover the story of a shady stock promoter’s death, he finds himself embroiled in a murder investigation.

This entertaining and suspenseful debut introduces us to an unforgettable lead character. Mr. Jinnah, a politically incorrect but resourceful reporter, proves to be a wily and relentless investigator. Hindered in his pursuits by the police department, Mr. Jinnah searches out the truth in an increasingly bizarre investigation. Meanwhile, he and his cousin seek their fortune in a scheme to marry Russian peasant women to wealthy Chinese men.
