Tying a couple of threads together, Michael Connelly's protagonist in Blood Work can't drive. He's hired to solve a crime, it's a job he can't turn down. A big part of the character development is that he can't drive, becasue he's recovering from a heart transplant. Driving is too dangerous. He has to take the bus to get around to investigate the crime. I think Connelly did an especially good job with that book. It's an interesting take on a frail PI. Haven't seen that one used before. The character's heart problems was based on a friend of Mike's, that he met at his first booksigning.
