Operation Asian Tiger

A Jonathon Stone Mystery Short Story


Author: James Moushon


AVAILABLE
Amazon


Chuck Chun joins Jonathon Stone in a mundane assignment in Singapore. The dull surveillance op quickly turns from boring to the search for terrorists and the solution of an international tragedy. The Royal Malaysian Police are going in the wrong direction as Jonathon uses the vast resources of the CIA to zero in on the truth.

Excerpt from Operation Asian Tiger

A marine layer was rolling into the Long Beach sky. I sat on the outside deck of the Casino Queen staring at the Queen Mary across the harbor. I was taking a break from my blackjack routine I told myself but in reality it seemed like I couldn’t win a hand.

I was down a couple thousand so I was going to plan B. Jack and Coke was always plan B.

Being an on-call asset for the CIA meant I had a lot of downtime.

A cocktail waitress walked toward me with a refill, when my cell phone rang. I checked the caller ID. Bad timing. It was Russ Evans, my boss from San Francisco. I checked my watch. Six o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. We can’t have something going on now.

“Russ, what’s up?”

“I have an assignment for you. I’m not interrupting anything, am I?”

I stared at my ice-filled glass of Jack.

“Oh, no. Nothing I can’t take care of quickly.”

“Good. We need you to go to Singapore tomorrow. Chuck Chun will meet you there. He is leaving tonight. We have you booked out of LAX at six in the morning.”

Well, so much for trying to win my money back.

“What do we have going on there?”

“I need you and Chuck to babysit the field office there. Kim Asato, the station chief, just took on a major task and we want to have the office there covered. With your management experience and Chuck’s language skills, you’re the right two for the job. Besides Jon, you need to take a break from the Casino.”

I took a quick look around. Could he hear the slots in the background?

“What kind of deal are we getting into?”

“We are probably talking two weeks. She has a couple of active tasks that need monitoring. She has her hands full with the plane that disappeared over there. Anyway I don’t foresee any heavy lifting on your part. Kim doesn’t want the other tasks to get away from her. She’ll brief you when you get there. You were just there last year, right?”

“Yes. Kim picked me up at the airport.”

I don’t know if you could say I was actually there. I touched down. Took care of business and was on the red eye back to the states that same day. It was one of those in-and-out ops.

“Debbie will email your itinerary. Jon, look at this like two weeks off. I’ll keep in touch.”

Six in the morning at LAX on a Monday with a seventeen hour flight ahead of me. That doesn’t sound like time off but they do serve beverages on the flight and it was first class.

I took care of the Jack and Coke and headed home. My money would still be there when I got back.
