IN SEARCH OF JASON is the story of Jason Reilly, a lowly employee at B.Pictures, a cut-rate New York City film production company, whose owner, Mr.B. is a confidante of many curious characters inhabiting both sides of thelaw. In the course of one of his many errands for Mr. B., Jason goes to handsome papers to a diplomat at the United Nations and in the course of histime there, misplaces a film script he was carrying.From that loss, dire consequences arise, for the film for which the scriptwas written was to have been shot in the Caribbean, with the productionserving as cover for a drug-courier operation run by one of Mr. B.sless-than-legitimate pals, an underworld dynamo named Sicky.In addition to his illegal interests, Sicky has entertained a lifelonglegitimate interest in some day becoming a major feature film producer.Thus, the idea of someone like Jason not only endangering his profits, whichwould be bad enough, but also imperiling his cinematic opportunity of alifetime is an outrage to which the only answer can be one of summaryexecution!Now, its one thing when youre seeking to prove your innocence to a lawofficer who, theoretically, is subject to some constraints, but when youretrying to explain yourself to a paranoid gunman who acknowledges no lawssave those in his own, options become more limited. Such is the case forJason.So, after narrowly avoiding being murdered in his bed and getting run overby a speeding car aimed at a pay phone booth hes calling from, Jason makeshis escape from the city. He heads for the New Jersey Turnpike, ChesapeakeBay, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, the Florida swamps, Miami and,finally, the Caribbeans blue carpet.Along he way, he picks up a partner in crime - or perhaps innocence. Dr. SamAlbert is a former 1960s college revolutionary, present-day psychiatrist andoff-hours bush pilot, whose set of wings Jason finds useful in Miami, whenthe ships captain hes hired to take him afloat begins to cause problems.Later, while island-hopping in the Caribbean with Albert, Jason gets,unwittingly, another partner in the form of Aringapu, a Central AmericanIndian whose ancestors, 500 years earlier, were either massacred or drivenoff the very island where Sicky now proposes to set up his supreme shoot.You wouldnt expect Jason to come to earth practically right under SickysRay-Bans. Youd think it would be the last place Aringapu would want to turnup in, too. Youd think, above all, that the good Dr. Albert, skilled inproviding wise counsel and comfort, would look out for Jasons interests andfly him out at once. Youd be wrong on all counts, particularly on the last!You might also expect, on this page, to find out how it all wraps up, butthis place is meant to stimulate your appetite, not satiate it. All that canbe said for now is that, in a curious and appropriate way, the punishmentfits the crime.
