It was through a recommendation at Spacetrawler that I learned of Drive, so you win the bet. Good thing, I wouldn't know what to do with your Great Aunt Gertie.
I've mentioned Spacetrawler, the webcomichere before (and have it perma-linked on the right, there)...but I wanted to make a special mention of the first Spacetrawler book...because I've read it twice, now...and it is excellent, excellent sci-fi.
If you like Drive...oh man I'd bet my Great Aunt Gertie that you'll dig Spacetrawler. It seriously is good, good stuff. Give the book a go!
