“Raw, street-savvy humor.” —Publishers Weekly

“As the title suggests, this is a book about dawgs. Not dogs, but d-a-w-g-s. Cheatin’, lyin’, no good, no-‘count, dirty lowdown mendawgs and womendawgs…You can’t read Cheaters without becoming an active participant. You easily find yourself turning a page, shaking your head, and tsk-tsking.”—Los Angeles Times

Cheaters not only makes readers examine their own behavior but keeps them laughing while doing so.”—Library Journal

“His storytelling skills are first-rate.”—Detroit Free Press

“Wrenching emotion…he draws a tragic, romantic picture of love as both a panacea and a curse, an unavoidably painful pleasure.”—Durham Herald-Sun

“A generous helping of humor and a distinctly male viewpoint.”—Atlanta Journal and Constitution

“Dickey’s fourth novel easily fulfills the expectations created by his earlier work and introduces a fresh sobriety to his talent for dialogue and character…smoothly done.”—Kirkus Reviews
