really liked it
Read in June, 2010

I really enjoyed this story of an unnamed young man raised in the correctinal system who devotes his life to becoming a getaway driver. The thought and detail that Vachss devles into exploring the Driver's psyche is pretty amazing and really well done. As always with Vachss, we get a bunch of interesting characters, from the brother bankrobbers who take the Driver under their wing to the cleptomaniac trust fund baby who the Driver shacks up with for a short time. Cool story, cool characters and an ending I certainly didn't see coming, this is a really good read and should be of particular intersest to lovers of crime fiction and cars.
