Praise

Advance Praise for Hart Hanson and The Driver:

“[A] remarkable debut… The dialogue is crisp and street-tough, and the action redefines relentless. Expect lots of buzz for what is sure to be one of the season’s hottest first novels.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Riveting, smart, and funny, The Driver is a masterfully crafted debut. Michael Skellig is the hero we’ve been waiting for—a wry war veteran who doesn’t take anything (or anyone) too seriously, even while staring down the face of a sawed-off shotgun.”—Harlan Coben
 
The Driver has it all—crisp dialogue, complex characters, and a plot that zips at breathtaking speed. I see the beginning of a great career in thriller fiction.”—Kathy Reichs 

The Driver is everything a great thriller should be—always smart, often funny, and relentlessly exciting. The novel features imaginative mayhem from the first pages, a terrific twisting plot, and countless fresh elements, starting with its hip, witty, limo-driver hero, who deals with the eccentric world of high-profile skateboarding and the lingering sadness of many of our vets. I loved every page.”—Scott Turow
 
“Hart Hanson has given us a wonderful debut novel in The Driver. Former Army Special Forces Sergeant Michael Skellig runs a limousine service in Los Angeles, staffed by his hand-picked team of former war companions. Skellig and his people are living casualties of America’s wars—damaged in different ways but clinging to their lives with determination, anger, and resourcefulness. Set in an LA of narcissistic celebrity, corrupt law enforcement, and limitless greed, The Driver is grim, funny, violent, and moving—all on the same page.”—T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Room of White Fire

The Driver is smart, brash, and funny, with characters who strut right out of an Elmore Leonard novel.  For thrills, chills, and plenty of laughs, Hart Hanson is your man.” –Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of I Know a Secret
 

“The ghost of Raymond Chandler is apparently alive and well and living inside Hart Hanson. I felt as though I was reading a 21st century reboot of The Long Goodbye. Brutal, gripping and funny. A dazzling debut.” –Charles Cumming
