Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 142087411X, Paperback)

A disturbing novel of the future, in which Great Britain's obsession for the 'Beautiful Game' has led the repressive authorities to enforce it as the official religion. In fact, all other faiths have been banned, and heretics - together with all other criminal elements - have been deported to the National Penal Colony, formerly known as the Isle of Wight. On the mainland there is full employment, owing to the Government's policy of W.O.S - 'Work or Starve.' Free speech is frowned upon, so when a voice of protest is heard crying from the wilderness, the 'Preacher' is immediately branded as a wanted man. Ordered to hunt him down is Jette Black, a sexy captain in the dreaded Sports Police. A succession of wild and exciting encounters follows, by the end of which the cruel, cool chick begins to question her adversary's identity. Is he Christ or the Anti-Christ? Her mind races, as the end of the world draws nigh...
