Temple Of Fear by Manning Lee Stokes

Lost: America's top agent on a bizarre assassination assignment.
Found: Fragments of an incredible espionage plot. Targets-United States and Red China.
Reward: The world in flames or peace, depending on who won.

Somewhere in Tokyo's espionage jungle a shocking double cross warned that the plot was underway. America's super secret espionage network, AXE, moved to assign its top operative, Nick Carter to Japan. But Nick disappeared. Drugged and kidnapped by the oldest ploy in the book. A beautiful women with a body built for betrayal. And for the first time, Nick finds himself helpless, weaponless, alone, and trapped into helping the enemy. Nick assumes the identity of a man long dead as he hunts for a lovely but lethal double agent through the neon wilderness of Tokyo's Ginza. He matches wits and bullets with the strangest enemy, knowing that one false move could mean a world in flames.
