Description

"THE LION DOMINION is a suspenseful political thriller, with a setting and time frame intriguingly different." It is said that he who saves a life inherits a permanent responsibility for that life. But what responsibility does the saved life incur? Can such a debt ever be repaid? When Alex Dexter's life is saved by an Ethiopian soldier in Korea in 1953 he never expects to be able to repay that debt. However, that opportunity presents itself 13 year later when they are reunited during Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassies' 1966 visit to Jamaica. This visit is set against a backdrop of intrigue and deception, involving espionage, assassination, betrayal and redemption, all of which unfold in the resort towns and backwaters of this beautiful Caribbean island. History and fiction are interwoven during the actual 5-day visit of Selassie, The Lion of Judah. With him is the head of his personal security force, Colonel Bekele Kebede, the Ethiopian who had saved Alex's life in Korea and who is also a covert agent for the U.S. His CIA handler is Gerry O'Keefe, a lifelong friend of Alex, the one responsible for Alex's involvement. Alex repays his debt to the Ethiopian, helping him defend the Emperor. He enlists the aid of friends in Jamaica and involves the Rastafarians, a messianic cult that considers Selassie divine. He also comes to realize that his infatuation with Maria Palmer, an American writer living in Jamaica, is much more than that. Alex and his CIA friend O'Keefe, who is also trying to uncover a mole, a traitor within the CIA, face an array of questions as they peel away the layers of subterfuge to get at the reality of what is happening. "I love everything about this book, from its historical background, to its contemporary setting, to the language it uses, and, even the title - very majestic -an attention grabber!""An awesome piece of literature. I am totally blown away by the history and the Jamaican story, especially the Rastafarians."
