Michael Skellig is a former Special Forces soldier who owns a small limo service in L.A. His company includes two mentally and physically disabled veterans and his former interpreter from Afghanistan. One day when he is on the job driving he comes across a crime in progress and saves the lives of a celebrity named Bismarck Avila and his bodyguard. Bismarck blackmails the reluctant Skellig into becoming his driver and from then on, he is thrown into lots of crazy situations. Unfortunately, Skellig doesn’t need work to be crazy as his personal life is already nuts. He is in love with both Connie, a lawyer, and her best friend Delilah who is a police officer. This book is both funny and violent and reminded me a lot of Joe Lansdale’s Hap and Leonard books. The Driver is a great debut novel by Hart Hanson.
