I wrote "The Upper Crust" several years ago, and was told that my story needed peppering up. Well I peppered it up considerably. Set in the early days of electronics just after WW2, it deals with Geological Survey from the air. In fact, the air-crew flying the `Yankee whiskey' were all ex-R.A.F. They were on a survey of Papua New Guinea for mineral wealth. The plane was fired at, and brought down by
Indonesian Kwang terrorists whilst flying on-line.
This was traumatic enough...but there was more trauma back home in the U.K. involving the kidnapping of our hero`s young 15 year old daughter. Here is Chapter One.
