(From the publisher):
In a small Chinese village, an old scientist is executed without trial. The next day, Peking papers carry stories of his 'sudden, regrettable suicide', and the CIA knows it has lost one of its most valuable agents.
At the edge of a Laotian jungle, an American Officer and his guerilla band are bombed by Chinese planes. The Chinese later apologise for their 'accidental airspace violation'.
In a smart New York bar, Thailand's UN delegate slumps to the floor. The official verdict - heart failure. In fact, someone has sprayed deadly cyanide gas into his gace only hours before he was to vote against China.
Linking these murders is an enemy agent known only as 'the Red Chinese paymaster'. It's up to Nick Carter to find him.
