    Lew Griffin ermittelt in einem Vermisstenfall. Wie so oft mit wenig Aussicht auf Erfolg. Die Spuren führen ihn ins Schattenreich des French Quarter in New Orleans mit seinen Bars, Touristenattraktionen und dem Rotlichtmilieu. Doch seine Nachforschungen nehmen bald ein gewalttätiges Ende, und er muss einsehen, dass sein eigenes Dasein immer mehr dem der verlorenen Seelen gleicht, auf deren Spur er ist. Lew Griffin ist selbst ein Verlorener.

    Driver ist kein Verbrecher. Jedenfalls nicht im engeren Sinne. Er ist nur der beste Stuntfahrer, den man in Hollywood kriegen kann. Und manchmal fährt er bei Raubüberfällen den Fluchtwagen, obwohl ihn das gar nicht so richtig interessiert. Genauso wenig wie die Hollywoodfilme. Eigentlich will er nur fahren. Aber dann läuft einer dieser Überfälle schief, und Driver findet sich in einem schäbigen Motel in Arizona wieder, mit mehreren Leichen im Zimmer und einer Tasche voller Geldscheine.

    Die Schatten der Vergangenheit sind lang. Besonders, wenn die Mafia ihre Finger im Spiel hat und noch eine Rechnung offen ist. James Sallis hat die Fortsetzung seines preisgekrönten und erfolgreich verfilmten Romans "Driver" geschrieben - und wieder einen außergewöhnlichen Noir geschaffen. In Hollywoodfilmen schnellt ein Typ, der fast ertrunken wäre, für gewöhnlich aus dem Wasser hoch ins Sonnenlicht und schnappt dabei gierig nach Luft.

    Lew Griffin has quit the detective business and withdrawn to the safety of his old home in New Orleans' Garden District, where he copes with his past by transforming it into fiction. But following the death of a close friend, he returns to the streets - not only the urban ones he has conquered, but also those of the rural South that he escaped long ago - to search for the runaway daughter he didn't know his friend had.

    A sniper appears in 1960s New Orleans, a sun-baked city of Black Panthers and other separatists. Five people have been fatally shot. When the sixth victim is killed, Lew Griffin is standing beside her. He's black and she's white, and though they are virtual strangers, it is left to Griffin to avenge her death, or at least to try and make some sense of it. His unlikely allies include a crusading black journalist, a longtime supplier of mercenary arms and troops, and bail bondsman Frankie DeNoux.
