Cockatoo Part 26“Dao, Dao, calm down. What do you mean she’s been taken?”Alex wrenched the phone from me and talked to Dao in Thai. At the same time, Alex’s phone rang.“Jamie, it’s Shane. I tried to call your phone, but it’s busy.”“Alex is on the other phone to Dao. She says Areeya’s been taken. What the fuck’s going on?”“Thaksin just called to warn me. Jandaeng was being taken under guard to hospital to have treatment on his arm. They were jumped between the prison and the hospital, and he was sprung. He’s in the air. Two guards are dead, and a third isn’t expected to make it.”“Where’s Areeya?”“As soon as I heard about Jandaeng, I called Areeya’s close protection guy. No answer at all. There’s a guy with Areeya 24/7 now she’s running Kritsada’s operations. We have a tracker on her car, it appears to be stationary somewhere in Sukhumvit. There’s a team on the way there now. They should be there in 10.”“Shane. this isn’t a coincidence is it?”“No, it has to be Jandaeng somehow.”Alex grabbed my arm, “Tell him Dao is sending the plane down to pick us up. We’ll be in Bangkok in four hours.”“Did you get that, Shane?”“Copy that. I’ll have someone waiting for you at the airport. I’ll call back when the team reaches her car.”Alex fell back onto a chair. “Fuck, fuck, fuck, this has to be Jandaeng, doesn’t it? Why didn’t that shot kill him?”My heart hammered in my chest, and my knees buckled as it hit me what had happened. I slumped down with my head in my hands unable to look at ...
... Alex.“This is all my fault.”Alex turned to look at me. “What do you mean? This isn’t your fault, it’s Jandaeng.”“It is my fault. I didn’t tell you everything that happened that night in the garage with Aki.” I took a deep breath, “It’s my fault because I could have killed Jandaeng that night.”“How? I mean it was an accident Jandaeng got shot, right?”“Yes it was, but it didn’t happen the way I told you. When Aki took me into the garage, he pushed a gun in my hand and told me to shoot Jandaeng. He even held my finger on the trigger. I couldn’t do it, and the gun fell to the floor and went off, hitting Jandaeng in the arm.”“You’re telling me you could have got rid of Jandaeng, and you didn’t do it?”“Alex, you weren’t there. You don’t know what it was like. I couldn’t shoot him tied up on a chair. I thought Aki would shoot him, anyway. That’s when they blew open the door.”My phone bleeped. It was Shane calling back.“Shane, It’s Jamie, I’ll put you on speaker.”“It’s not good news. We found her car in Sukhumvit. Her bodyguard was dead inside the car, but there’s no sign of Areeya. The only good news is that there was no sign of blood on Areeya’s side of the car. There was a witness who said she saw a woman pulled from the car and bundled into a white van. That’s all we’ve got so far, but the Thai police are all over this, and Thaksin is keeping us in touch with anything they uncover.”Alex slumped back in her chair. “Fuck, there must be something more we can do?”“Alex, we’re doing ...
