The Devil's Cockpit by Manning Lee Stokes

Mona McCall: A beautiful ex-Hollywood star and sex darling of the Western World was lending her fame and figure to a Red Chinese pornographic propaganda mill and was lashing America's reputation to a burning stake.

Micheal Blackstone: American director and communist. He willingly betrayed his homeland and spilled coils of vileness from his films.

Pamela Martin: English, has the makings for a very deadly spy except that she has been picked for pornographic stardom or else.

Somewhere in the dark streets of Budapest, a pornographic mill was churning out films that proclaimed the hideous decadence of American Imperialism.  This assignment takes Nick Carter on a steamy tour of Eastern Europe in search of Blackstone and Mona McCall. Ms Martin is his would be assistant, a half hustler, half spy.
