EUROVISION FINAL!

Fan of Eurovision? Maybe you don’t know what it is?

Well The Holy Diamond might be one of the few novels, if not the first, to feature the beloved and despised, but ever thriving, European song contest that gave birth to Abba, Celine Dion, River Dance, and others.

Without spoilers, all I can say is that The Holy Diamond features the Eurovision song competition in a big way!  Douze points (twelve points, which is what the first place contestant gets from each country) was never so important in the history of Europe as in The Holy Diamond.

This year’s Eurovision will be hosted in Copenhagen, Denmark – which is also where in the novel (by total coincidence, since the first draft of the novel was finished 6 months before the 2013 Eurovision final in Malmö) where the neo-Nazi organization, the Teutonic Knights of the Aryan Order, are based.
