Cheating, and Infidelity
Danine Manette
Ultimate Betrayal
Suspicious of your mate? Read this book, November 5, 2006
Reviewer:Cindy G - Book freak "Cindy G"

straying or has strayed. It's very funny and very thought provoking. It This is a
terrific quick read for any woman who thinks her mate might be does not tell you
how to get revenge. After you read the book, you won't want to anyway but you
will gain something more valuable - clarity. Some of her ideas on how to catch
your cheating mate are downright hysterical. My favorite part though (and the
part I wish I'd done when I finally confronted my cheating mate) was to always
have a reason ready when asked "what are you doing looking at my xxxx credit
card bill?" I also loved her explanation of how to watch for and how to handle the
"Jedhi Mind Games". This ability comes in handy in all types of
situations - not just in confronting a cheating spouse.

Enjoy this book!

Reviewer: Donna Garrison "wise woman" (Toronto, ON)

If you want to uncover infidelity, this book will help you do that. It's a funny read,
that will give you all of the information you need to catch them in the act. Once
you've caught them, then it's up to you whether you want to work it out or not...

An Investigator At Heart, January 31, 2004
Reviewer: The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers (see more about me) from

DECEPTIONS by Danine Manette is a step-by-step, how-to, investigative guide
for catching a cheating spouse or significant other. Written by a woman, either
men or women can use this small but informative guide.Manette, a criminal
investigator by trade with a Ph.D. in law and a personal experience from having
been cheated on, goes into great detail by laying out a foundation on how to
begin an investigative journey that culminates in self-reflection.

Manette writes with humor but pulls no punches when it comes to the tactics she
highly recommends. The contents of the book are Recognizing Signs, Gathering
Evidence, Confrontation, Disclosure and What Now. Each content area provides
a framework of how to discover, if there is anything to discover, half-truths and
lies. At the end of the journey Manette brings it all home with the chapter on
Self-Reflection. If you have to go to these lengths, what does that say about you?

DECEPTIONS will have your mouth agape, your mind spinning and may have
you laughing out loud at some of the tactics used to uncover the hidden truth.

Watch out cheaters!! August 8, 2003
Reviewer: Stacey W. Mattison from Atlanta, GA

This is a great book for people who suspect their mate of cheating. It's a must
read for men and women - It's humorous and full of excellent tips! There is also
quite a bit information to make you think about your current relationship and how
healthy or unhealthy it is. It's an excellent read - you won't be able to put the
book down!

A great and quick read! July 16, 2003
Reviewer: George Arroyo from California, United States

Danine Manette manages to write a "how to" that offers real world advice in a
concise and entertaining manner. In this book, Danine is painfully honest about
her personal emotions while offering the reader a straight forward, easy to follow
approach to discovery and confirmation of a cheating partner.

At such a bargain price, I picked up the book out of male curiosity. Despite the
fact it's a "how to book", I found myself reading this short book in just one sitting
because THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL has a good deal of suspense to it. I
imagined someone going through all the steps Danine suggests which creates a
sense of suspense as one reads quickly through the book. Will you be caught
spying on your mate! Will your mate catch on to you!catch your cheating mate...
And for those who are cheating on your spouse, this book is probably a must
read if you want a half decent chance to cover your tracks!

I just finished soaking in the tub reading your book cover to cover! I only wish I'd
been able to read it seven years ago (not that I would have listened to anyone's
advice back then...) This book is awesome. Many practical tips on gathering
evidence and maintaining your composure. I made so many mistakes when
collecting evidence. The worst was that I constantly tipped my hand in anger.
And yeah, I always divulged my sources to him, out of a sense of honesty and
"legality." Now I see how that hampered me... my H is a govt. investigator who is
good at what he does. So I have been dealing with the master of Jedeye Mind
Tricks. I have pretty much given up the search and am concentrating on getting
me healed... It is a great book! It is absolutely the kind of practical book I wish I'd
had years ago. The nitty gritty details really help me, a lot more than
psychological fluff.

Anyway, folks: The book is warm, matter-of-fact, and filled with great details on
how to snoop. The descriptions of cheaters' common responses are dead-on.
Most importantly, the final chapter asks the reader to ask herself to do some
soul-searching. You have helped me to see that I do deserve better. Thank you
dmanette for sharing your knowledge and experience in this book! You deserve
the kudos!!!

The author gives a very insightful view into the mind of cheating mates. She also
knows how to identify with feelings that everyone has probably had in one
relationship or another. This book encourages readers to examine not only their
mate but themselves.
By "Nick S. "Nick S" (Southern Illinois)

This book is for guys too. I recently got this book and read it the same day, I
couldn't put it down. I basically wanted some piece of mind that getting rid of my
ex because I thought she was cheating was the right decision. After reading this
book, I realized that my ex's behavior and behavior changes were exactly what
the book said cheaters would do. At one point, it just bulletin points bunches of
clues that are later explained. I found myself saying yes-- she did that and that
and that. I have to say that at the end of the book I kinda felt dumb for not seeing
all the signs but I am really glad I know what to look for now.

This has got to be the BEST book ever written on the subject of infidelity ! If you
suspect that your spouse or - SO - is cheating on you - then you will never regret
purchasing this book. The author is a pretty incredible person, as well :)

Simply - the BEST - Infidelity Book - out there!!! May 9, 2006
Reviewer: Drifting "Sandy"(Carolinas)


How ANYONE could think otherwise, is beyond ME!!! I am not, a professional
book reviewer, so I speak only from my heart... I am a betrayed spouse. When I
first suspected, that my husband was seeing another woman, my first thought was
to run to the book store, and pull every book off the shelves that dealt with
infidelity and so I did... Had quite a stack of them, next to my chair, and I spent
weeks looking thru them ALL and found that Danine Manette's book, "Ultimate
Betrayal" was and is, the only book, that truly "got ME" and "helped Me"... In fact,
she probably saved my life. Dealing with infidelity is a "roller coaster ride at best
and when one first finds out, the cheating spouse will most likely lie, lie, lie, and -
you - the betrayed spouse, will believe them, for a while...making yourself feel like
you are going crazy. Not a good place to be... Ms Manette's book gave me hope,
courage, guidance, humor, and it's all condensed into one - easy read - treasure
cove - of excellent information! IF you suspect that your spouse is having an
affair, this book is for you. Do not purchase another one, until you have read this
one, PLEASE!!!

Simply - the BEST - BETTER - than all the rest!!!!! Once you start reading it you
will not be able to put it down, it's that good...

This book is definitely a page turner! February 25, 2004
Reviewer: A reader from San Mateo, California USA

I was hesitant to read this book, but found I just couldn't put it down after I started
reading it. The author explains situations and gives readers a step-by-step plan
for finding out if their mate is cheating. In doing so, she had me laughing the
whole time with her experiences and suggestions for how to catch the cheater at
his game. I was pleasantly surprised at how the author sums up her experience in
her journey and makes good points about why we even put up with lying/cheating
mates in the first place. Now that I've read the book, I definitely recommend it.

Reviewer: A reader from Los Angeles, CA

This book is appealing on several levels. Not only a practical "how-to" book with
techniques to catch a cheating mate (by the way, they work!), the book is also an
entertaining read. The author writes with humor and candor, drawing on personal
experience. Also offers some thought-provoking advice on relationships which
was definitely helpful to me!

Reviewer: A reader from Oakland, CA United States

Ultimate Betrayal is an excellent journey into the world of mate-to-mate deception.
Danine Manette provides riveting details on recognizing and coming to terms with
deceptive behavior from an intimate party. I highly recommend this book and it's a
must read for anyone dealing with deception from any 3rd party source, whether
it be an intimate partner, friend, co-worker, etc. Pick up the book today!

Challenging and thought provoking...a must read!! July 15, 2003
Reviewer: A reader from California

This book is for every person who has ever felt betrayed. My guess is that
everyone has at some point in their life. The author does a wonderful job of
validating our feelings of hurt and confusion. It is nice to know that someone
understands our need to uncover betrayal. But be careful, because by the end of
the book, the person you may uncover the most about is yourself.

What a journey!! This was good - having experienced what you have experienced
and then reading about it is powerful. You have put into words every thought,
fear, angry outburst, stupid act, etc.

I'm glad this book was not just about how to tell if "he" is cheating, but really more
about the self-destruction of ourselves in searching for the "cheater".

Some of it is funny-having lived thru it, survived and all, I can laugh; but, boy,
were those some painful moments-you articulated them nicely - I "felt" you.

Reviewed by Crystal Thomas 2/23/2001

This book is OUTSTANDING. The author gives excellent techniques about
catching a mate that may be cheating. The book also encourages self-analysis
and evaluation of what one may be doing to enable" the cheater. This book offers
valuable lessons that are delivered with a sense of humor.

Fantastic job!!!

You are absolutely, right on the money in all that you share/explain. I'm 33,
divorced, and RN......and though you'd think I had a couple brains in my head
(LOL), looking back, it's clear that I've more often than not, ended up with men
who cheated. Even my ex husband. All of these past experiences have helped
now, to fine tune my intuition... though sometimes I find myself maybe being a little
too suspicious/ skeptical/cynical? My friends and family have always called me
"Sherlock" haha....because I can (through too much past experience) spot a
cheater or potential cheater a mile away....and like yourself, I must have PROOF!
There are a lot of women out there who live in denial......I can't imagine living that
way. Life is too short. A woman's mental health, happiness, peace of mind are
worth a heckuva lot more than that! Well, just wanted to let you know that all I
read made perfect sense, very easy to understand, very well laid out, very
'common sense.' Bravo!
