Praise

Praise for Eric Jerome Dickey and his novels

“Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction comes to mind as Swift and Ellis cruise through Los Angeles’s wealthy neighborhoods debating issues of racism, inner-city poverty, and the lingering effects of slavery. . . . Suspense builds with an action-packed finale, and Dickey’s many fans will eagerly consume this.”—Library Journal on Bad Men and Wicked Women

“Dickey sets in motion a fascinating cast of characters and creates compelling arcs for their stories. . . . Readers will be cheering for the kindhearted Ken and his family in this dark yet ultimately hopeful novel.”—Booklist on Bad Men and Wicked Women

“Perennial New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey has done it again.”—Essence on Bad Men and Wicked Women

“Eric Jerome Dickey is the best thing going in fiction now in terms of writing stories that blend action with sensuality. . . . Dickey’s penchant for creating fiction that resonates with the forbidden overtakes us–these elements of danger and lust dominating each and every passage. At its best moments, Bad Men and Wicked Women recalls bits and pieces of the famed HBO series The Sopranos as we come to drench ourselves in the types of secrets many families harbor but seldom share.”—Electric Review 

“Dickey’s fans flock to his readings. . . . He’s perfected an addictive fictional formula.”—The New York Times

“Dickey has the knack for creating characters who elicit both rage and sympathy.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Dickey steadily generates a taut, deadly atmosphere throughout the book, and readers will not be able to predict who will be the last man standing.”Booklist on Finding Gideon

“[A] tale of obsession and betrayal.”—Kirkus Reviews on Finding Gideon

“An epic story about an epic quartet [of friends].”Essence on The Blackbirds

“In this sensual tale, words stoke the body and the imagination. With prose that is both witty and current, Dickey chronicles the pothole-filled journey four modern black women take to find love.”Kirkus Reviews on The Blackbirds

“Dickey . . . once again stirs a juicy mix of steamy sexuality with soap-opera drama. . . . Fans will be pleased to recognize characters from the author’s previous novels.”Library Journal on The Blackbirds

“[An] empowering story of four women friends . . . [featuring] relatable voices and feelings to difficult issues.”—Booklist on The Blackbirds

“Sure to get your blood boiling (in a good way).”USAToday.com’s Happily Ever After on The Blackbirds

“If you’re looking for something extra steamy to keep you warm, reach for this enticing romance novel.”—Metro on Naughtier than Nice
