"Dogs Chase Cars made me laugh out loud. many times. It is reminiscent of Carl Hiaasen's books- an excellent crime drama coupled with hilarious dialogue and situations. I totally loved it." - Mike Boon
"A comedy with heart." - Andrew Oberg
"Dressed up in bawdy, occasionally even gross-out, humor, Dogs Chase Cars has wit – real wit - to spare. Almost every paragraph builds up to its own punch line, and delivers a blow every time, even a few knock-outs.

Mystery, humor, sex – it’s all there, but what elevates Dogs Chase Cars in the end is heart. Porter’s characters walk, talk and act like real people – he nails the dialogue, the interaction, the attractions, the challenges and the conflicts with subtlety and nuance, and has us laughing and rooting for Harry and his misfit circle of friends as they track down a would-be killer, and learn to take care of each other along the way." - Matt Hadder
