Three British missiles experts vanish in midair. Travelling on ordinary scheduled passenger flights, three scientists suddenly vanish without a trace and no wreckage of the aircraft is ever found. The Foreign Office is quick to blame Russia – until they discover that Russian scientists have also disappeared in equally mysterious circumstances. To solve the riddle, James Dingle and Glyn Jones, top agents of Britain’s SS(O)S, are ordered to co-operate with their traditional enemy, the KGB. A trap is set, with Jones and two Russian agents as bait, but the mystery deepens when, like the scientists, they vanish too, and Jones finds himself in double trouble. One small clue leads Dingle to Red China... and danger. From the moment of his arrival, Dingle feels he is already being watched. In his quest, Dingle uncovers a sinister plot which has brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. But running out of time, and without a single clue to where Jones might have vanished, Dingle feels powerless to stop it... Checkmate for China is a fast-paced thriller leading up to a tense and exciting climax.
