"I really, really enjoyed this book. The relationship between Nick and Rusty and Nick and Anson are genuine and down to earth. Nick’s story gives an intimate and up close look into the gritty and flamboyant world of London and LA's music scene during the eighties and early nineties. I love how Nick goes from being an angry repressed man who hates his roots to a man of faith who is at peace with himself and his past."

and from RAINBOW REVIEWS:
EMERALD IDOL “...paints Nick's life story with all its colorful detail...a fascinating coming of age story and an 'accounting' of the times, events, and people that shaped Nick into who he is today.
This book explores "what it was like to be an up and coming musician in the 80s... [and] a young man struggling with his mixed race background on top of being gay...." and is a "very realistic description of what goes on in parts of the music industry..."
In addition to these professional reviews, READERS are talking. Here's what a reader at Amazon wrote in a recent post:
"EMERALD IDOL is multilayered, nostalgic, erotic saga that makes for an incredibly entertaining read. Part Alan Hollinghurst, part Jacqueline Susann, Hank Fielder pens a brilliantly spirited striptease in which complex characters reveal themselves with great drama and flair. At this musical and absorbing tale's center is an enigmatic hero who discovers himself alongside the reader. Spurts of sex top this delicious literary treat."
