"A dark and striking thriller with an indelible cast and setting," Kirkus Reviews.
"Starts fast and doesn't let up on its breakneck pace until bodies (both living and dead) are strewn all over the place," Pacific Book Review.
"With Tokyo Traffic, Pronko further establishes Hiroshi as one of the most distinctive and intrepid detectives in contemporary crime fiction," Best Thrillers.
"This is a classic thriller in terms of the gritty atmosphere, the dark characters and the brave and slightly broken hero," The Wishing Shelf.
"Pronko develops characters that leap off the page. We want them to escape, we want them to get caught, we want them to solve the case," Chanticleer Book Reviews.
"Combining old-fashioned gumshoeing with modern-day social conventions, Pronko's tale is as much a Tokyo detective's diary as it is a gritty underworld whodunit," US Review of Books.
"Tokyo is described in all of its beauty and ugliness, where the sparkling world of music clubs, internet cafes and teen hangouts are tainted by a dismaying traffic of young people," Advicesbooks.
"Pronko's characters are fully developed, his dialogue is authentic, and his writing is clear and concise," San Francisco Book Review.
"It's clear the author knows Japan deep in his soul. Pronko is also a masterful storyteller. As the narrative's tension builds, readers will find themselves racing toward the inexorable moment when police, victims and villains collide," Blue Ink Review.
"A high-energy thriller set in the gruesome world of human trafficking and child pornography, TOKYO TRAFFIC keeps the adrenaline pumping until the very end," IndieReader.
"The novel gives us deep insight into the criminal underbelly of Japan and how the different criminal activities are inter-related and inter-dependent on each other," Reedsy Discovery.
"A story that winds through Tokyo's streets and Hiroshi's heart alike, drawing readers through a dangerous game that culminates in an unexpected, satisfying conclusion," Midwest Book Review.
"Pronko creates the backdrop to this story as if it is a character all on its own and invites readers into this colorful world in an easy yet striking way. Thrilling crime fiction set in an exotic location," Literary Titan.
From the Author
"Crouching behind the plywood wall of the film set, Sukanya waited until silence echoed through the cavernous warehouse. Her skin was clammy and covered in goosebumps. Sweat sprang from every pore in her body. She hugged herself, shivering, listening, her heart pumping hard from the last injection of whatever it was. When the silence and the cold became too much, she peered around the edge of the film set, shading her eyes from the white blaze of an upended light, and stepped out to survey the scene. Cold air floated down from the high, dark ceiling. Shadows loomed over the muted chaos below."
"Staring through the diamond frame of his upraised arms, Detective Hiroshi Shimizu felt for one still moment that a circuit connected, and his inner spirit took over. With a loud shout, he sprang forward and drove his sword onto the shoulder of his attacker, barely feeling the other sword strike his ribs. Pivoting and facing off again, they reset for another still moment, shouted and drove at each other as if turning into pure human energy for an instant before reconvening into a solid state once more."
"Outside, the Shimokitazawa streets curved and criss-crossed past galleries, boutiques, coffee shops, and clubs in a vibrant tangle. Even at night, clothes racks jutted into the narrow streets, and vintage clothes--no two alike--were displayed with nonchalant appeal. They walked around the corner to a wood-front restaurant with a single yellow light and a simple, handwritten menu. Chiho rolled the door open and they stepped onto a rough concrete floor. The interior was divided by wooden slats into small booths. The old woman who ran the place waved them toward a back booth with oil-dappled zabuton cushions on either side of a flat grill rimmed with wood."
