Review quote

"Lean and lethal...The underworld characters Driver deals with have a tendency to wax philosophical. 'You think about stuff much? Why you're here, what it all means?' one of the hit men asks him. 'Not really, ' Driver answers. And then he kills the guy." --"New York Times""The enigmatic loner known as Driver, introduced in 2005's "Drive", takes to the road again after two thugs assault him and his fiancee on a Phoenix street in this terse, brutal, poetic, perfectly wrought sequel." --"Publishers Weekly", starred review"Sallis, perhaps the most genuinely poetic crime writer alive, bleeds tone on every page, crafting sentences that read like a Thomas Hardy lyric." --"Booklist", starred review"Coming hard on the heels of the 2011 film version of cult favorite "Drive", this gritty, gristly tale will rivet Sallis's growing audience." --"Library Journal""Imagine the heart of Jim Thompson beating in the poetic chest of James Sallis and you'll have some idea of the beauty, sadness and power of "Drive."..[it] has more thought, feeling and murderous energy than books twice its length."--"Chicago Tribune", praise for "Drive "
