Item description for Red Lion by Allan Dobras...

Red Lion is a story of mystery and international intrigue. The novel spans the era from the Great Depression to the culmination of the Cold War and presupposes a different scenario of events leading to the dissolution of the Soviet Union--a scenario more technologically decisive and perilous than the historical circumstances that actually brought down the Iron Curtain. The theme of the novel is woven through two persons who lead mutually exclusive lives, but as the story evolves, develop an unexpected and intertwined relationship. Timothy Hudson is a foundling left on the steps of a Baltimore, Maryland church rectory on New Year's Eve, 1924. As a teenager, he is the subject of a mysterious disappearance, which is only explained many years after the fact. Robert (Rob) Kimbee is a newly appointed U.S. Secretary of Defense, circa 1980, who has been thrust into the task of developing a powerful, but controversial, high energy laser weapons system. The clandestine nature of the project brings personal and political problems to Rob, which are exacerbated by covert Soviet attempts to uncover the nature of the highly classified project. Although Red Lion is fictional, the eventual success of directed energy research could result in a huge shift in the technological balance of power and precipitate an era of political turmoil similar to that noted in the book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Red Lion?

Emotionally gripping - Action packed - Full of surprises!  Jan 9, 2003

Tom Clancey's first effort could not have been this good.

I literally lost a whole night's sleep because I could not put "Red Lion" down. It is truly different; the plot had twists I have never seen before, and the tone was intensely genuine. This book was so emotionally gripping that it often made me want to reach into the pages, pull out one of the characters, and give them a piece of my mind.

I would have liked to have seen more development of the romance between Jack and Lisa. The structure of the main story provided a lot of interesting tension--and therefore passion--that could have been further explored there. But the fact that a book is so rich that there was no room to develop all of the possibilities is really more of a positive aspect than a negative one. It was fully satisfying as it stands, and that is all you can ask for.
