Hank Frost finds himself in a deadly game of who do you trust when he's forced to work his way across mainland China—with a Chicom secret agent! It is one of those times when a man's got to do what he's got to do—even if it goes against everything he believes in. With China and Russia moving closer to a shooting war, Hank and Mike O'Hara have to go into action between the trigger-happy forces on both sides to find a tape that could throw America into the middle of a war we shouldn't be in. The only thing that makes the merc happy is Elizabeth Chu'an, a beautiful and seductive operative assigned by Peking to accompany him. Or is she a double?
