Apsara Jet - is a powerful, erotic, politically incorrect story of love, lust, betrayal, death and revenge, in the high stakes world of narco trafficking, in the skies of South East Asia.
John Jackson Jr, an unemployed Vietnam veteran and former Eastern Airlines Captain, had fallen to the depths of his alcoholic depression. Convicted of felony drunk driving in Miami...Divorced, homeless, and living in his car...he is given one last chance for redemption... To return to Indochina for the mysterious Alexander Chen, and into the cockpit of a McDonnell Douglas DC-8 cargo jet... Jackson, unaware at first, recruits two of his old friends, who rush to join up with him in Thailand. Later suspecting their mission cloaked in secrecy was far from legit, yet feeling that there was really no way out, they sink deeper into the dark world of Burmese Drug Lords, Ecstasy (MDMA) and The Russian Mafia.
Betrayed, they survive a fiery mid-air collision, nursing their crippled jet at night across Burma & Laos and finally home to Cambodian airspace, where they deliberately crash land in the San River, near the remote village of Phum Krom, in Northeastern Cambodia. There, Jackson and his only surviving partner, ex-CIA pilot and mercenary, A. P. Scott, recuperate, to later train and equip a small guerilla force, of mostly sex-crazed young Kreung native girls. Later, they lead their motley commando unit back to Phnom Penh to seek an apocalyptic revenge on Chen, their treacherous former employer, for millions of dollars in cash.
Those savvy readers, familiar with the Bangkok and Phnom Penh nightlife scene, will invariably recognize similarities between some of the locations described in the book and some of the most notable true-to-life institutions such as; Thermae, Patpong, Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, Clinton Plaza, Soi Zero and Martinis Disco.
