Drive, James Sallis's critically acclaimed thriller about a movie stunt-man who moonlights as a getaway driver for the mob, became an award-winning film, directed by Nicholas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan and introduced Sallis to a worldwide audience - this is the stunning sequel

Seven years have passed since Driver ended his campaign against those who double-crossed him. He has left the old life, become Paul West and founded a successful business back in Phoenix.

But 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 realises that his past stalks him - and will not stop.

He has to turn and face it.

Review quote

Lean and lethal noir narrative -- Mark Mills * The New York Times * Undiluted noir . . . dark, urgent and utterly compelling -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail * 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 Terse, brutal, poetic, perfectly wrought sequel. Come into this excellent novel cold, strap in, just hit the gas, and go * Publishers Weekly starred review * A mean, lean drive into darkness -- Christopher Fowler * Financial Times *
