Driven, James Sallis's Sequel to Drive, to be Published in April 2012

Driven by James Sallis (2012)

Last week Keith Rawson posted the news that Driven, the sequel to James Sallis's thriller Drive — which was adapted into a feature film released earlier this year — would be published in April 2012. The publisher, Poisoned Pen Press, also provided him with draft artwork for the cover (right).

Driven is available to pre-order from Amazon.com, which also has this description of the book:

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 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.
