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, 'the only one he ever mourned,' ending his campaign against those who double-crossed him. Driven tells how that young man, done with killing, becomes 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 fiancée are attacked by two men and, while Driver dispatches both, his fiancée 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. Because he drives. That's what he does. James Sallis has published 14 novels; numerous short stories, poems, and essays; the definitive biography of Chester Himes; and a translation of Raymond Queneau's novel Saint Glinglin. The film of Drive won Best Director award at Cannes, and his six Lew Griffin books are in development for film. www.jamessallis.com
