Praise for Drive... "The perfect piece of noir fiction." -Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review "More thought, feeling and murderous energy than books twice its length" -Chicago Tribune At the end of Drive, Driver has killed Bernie Rose, ending his campaign against those who double-crossed him. Now seven years later, Driver has left the old life, become Paul West, and founded a successful business back in Phoenix. Walking down the street one day, he and his fiancee are attacked by two men and, while Driver dispatches both, his fiancee is killed. Sinking back into anonymity, Driver retreats, but finds that his past stalks him and will not stop. He has to turn and face it. Because he drives. That's what he does. James Sallis has published 14 novels. The film of Drive won Best Director award at Cannes, and his six Lew Griffin books are in development for film. www.jamessallis.com "Terse, brutal, poetic, perfectly wrought." -Publishers Weekly starred review of Driven "DRIVEN is a lean and nasty piece of neo-noir. I took my seat on page one and didn't get back up again until it ended (far too quickly.) Always a pleasure to be in the hands of a master like James Sallis." -Dennis Lehane"
