Following Chinese points of view in a thriller set in the UK is inspired writing. Bad Traffic is a honey: suspense that never loses its grip.-Elmore Leonard

A unique story narrated through conflicting yet complementing perspectives. With vivid characterizations in an unprecedented milieu, and an odyssey against impossible odds, Simon Lewis succeeds in producing a moving, convincing thriller.-Qiu Xiaolong

Bad Traffic is a thrilling read as well as a study of social problems and a people dislocated in a foreign country. Simon’s understanding and sensitivity toward the Chinese people and culture gives the book its memorable depth. His characters are keenly observed and deftly drawn. I finished the book from cover to cover in one sitting.-Diane Wei Liang

Alongside Alex Garland and William Sutcliffe, Lewis is one of the pioneers of new travel fiction. And of the three he is the most in tune with experience of traveling and the possibilities it offers fiction.-Nicholas Blincoe

The pace and wit of Elmore Leonard with Alan Bennettish realism… highly accomplished and enjoyable-The Times

Confident, sharp as a tack, fast paced and blackly funny from begining to end.-Big Issue

Go drags you halfway around the world and expects you to keep up but you are happy to do it.-Observer
