The second in the Amethyst series of novels that explore the genesis of evil, as expressed in Nazi Germany, and mean to discover how it can survive or thrive in a civilized world. As protagonist, a very civilized (perhaps overly civilized) architect named Nicholas Newman. Pearl takes us into World Class International Soccer and the skin-head fans, manipulated and used by men who require unrest and fear to fuel their power. Terrifying. Brutal. Very strong stuff. Very much "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" before it existed, these three books garnered huge attention, best-seller status and great respect in Europe in the 1990's but thought to be too violent for our sensibilities, they were never published in the USA.
