Book Review of IDOLS & CONS by S.S. Michaels

IDOLS & CONS was written by S.S. Michaels and published by Omnium Gatherum Media in November 2011. It is available for purchase at  You can learn more about this author by visiting her blog at  

Jake is a fifteen year old drug addict who just happened to accidently witness a murder. Damien is the lead singer of a popular boy band who slips up and kills a groupie. Patrick is an artist who stumbles across the formula for achieving the fame that he has always dreamed of. What do these three have in common? They all want to taste of fame and fortune and could care less who they have to step on to get there, AND they are all the creations of S.S. Michaels from her debut novel, IDOLS & CONS.

A twisting, turning kaleidoscope of drugs, music, violence and good old fashioned back stabbing to make it all feel so right. Filled with some of the darkest goodies you can read in a book, Idols & Cons is NOT for the squeamish or fragile and it certainly isn’t your momma’s coffee table book. Michael’s manages to pull it all together with the perfect dose of humor to make fun of the boy bands that I love to hate.

This is not my normal read, but I highly recommend that you ALL step out of your comfort zone and get yourself a healthy dose of Idols & Cons. If Chuck Palahniuk, Quentin Tarantino & Dane Cook all had a threesome… well that would be real creepy, but their love child would be S.S. Michaels debut novel Idols & Cons. 5-spiders from me all day long!
