Publisher's Summary

At the end of the initial novel, Drive, Driver has killed Bernie Rose, “the only one he mourned”, ending his campaign against those who double-crossed him. Driven tells how the young man, done with killing, later will become the one who goes down early one 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-gang member 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, three books of musicology, multiple collections of short stories, poems, and essays, and more. His works have been shortlisted for the Anthony, Nebula, Edgar, Shamus, and Gold Dagger awards. His novel Drive was made into an award-winning motion picture.

    "Driven fails"
    What would have made Driven better?

    The writer still derails from imagination


    Has Driven turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I could like it better had they replaced the Paul Michael Garcia


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    he lacked the passion of words he was reading to the listeners.

    "good sequel but not as good as Drive"

    Really liked Drive but this seems a little repetitious and not as original and perhaps unnecessary.
