Driven is the sequel to Drive, now also an award-winning film. As we exit the initial novel, Driver has killed Bernie Rose, the only one he ever mourned, ending his campaign against those who double-crossed him. Driven tells how that young man, done with killing, later will become the one who goes down at 3 a.m. on a clear, cool morning in a Tijuana bar. Seven years have passed. 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, aided by his friend Felix, an ex-gangbanger and Desert Storm vet, Driver retreats, but finds that his past stalks him and will not stop. He has to turn and face it.

"Since the events in Drive, Driver has been living clean with a new name (Paul West), a successful business, and a fiancée. But one Saturday morning all that changes when they are attacked; he survives, but she doesn't - and neither do the attackers. Called "perhaps the most genuinely poetic crime writer alive" (Booklist), author James Sallis doesn't bother too much with plot. Rather, as Driver returns to the business of revenge, it'll be the precise and brutal prose that you'll notice. Fans of the cult favorite film version of Drive will not want to miss this sequel any more than fans of true noir writing would." March 2013 Thrillers and Suspense newsletter
