Happy Tuesday! Glad I remembered it was Tuesday – long weekend has me a bit confused. But happy to be here!
After just finishing a disappointing read, I was excited to start The Passenger by Lisa Lutz last night. The action started right away and I didn’t want to put this one down last night! It releases March 1, 2016 and I was provided an ARC through NetGalley!
“When I was done, that slicing pain across my back, like an invisible scar, seemed to ease. It has been so long since I’d spoken the truth, it sounded like a lie. I had a hell of a story to tell, but Blue seemed to take it in stride.”

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Spellman Files series, Lisa Lutz’s latest blistering thriller is about a woman who creates and sheds new identities as she crisscrosses the country to escape her past: you’ll want to buckle up for the ride!
In case you were wondering, I didn’t do it. I didn’t have anything to do with Frank’s death. I don’t have an alibi, so you’ll have to take my word for it…
Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband’s body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It’s not the first time.
She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognizes the hunted look in a fugitive’s eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya-now-Amelia accepts. An uneasy―and dangerous―alliance is born.
It’s almost impossible to live off the grid today, but Amelia-now-Debra and Blue have the courage, the ingenuity, and the desperation, to try. Hopscotching from city to city, Debra especially is chased by a very dark secret…can she outrun her past?
With heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, The Passenger is an amazing psychological thriller about defining yourself while you pursue your path to survival. One thing is certain: the ride will leave you breathless.
