Summary
"Lutz develops riveting suspense by slowly revealing the events that first sent Tanya/Amelia on the run, while pouring threats on her gritty heroine's increasingly tenuous bids at survival. Binge-worthy fare, especially for those drawn to strong female protagonists" ( Booklist , starred review).

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Lutz's Spellman Files attracted an enthusiastic fan base captivated by the quirky, humorous, modern-day Nancy Drew tales. That kind of love can give an author confidence to step out on a limb, and Lutz does so nimbly with this dark psychological thriller. Tanya Dubois finds her husband, Frank, dead after a tumble down the stairs and knows she can't afford the scrutiny police will give his questionable death. So, Tanya gases up his truck, blackmails mysterious Mr. Oliver for a new identity, and hits the road to start over as Amelia Keen. Tanya/Amelia's life on the run began years before she met Frank, and she has the procedures down cold. But she's never gotten used to the loneliness, which may be why she allows herself to forge a new friendship with Blue, a secretive Austin bartender. When threats from both of their pasts resurface, Blue devises their risky escapes. But as Tanya/Amelia struggles to settle into her newest fake life and reluctantly squelches a dangerous romance with a small-town sheriff, she begins to suspect that Blue's plan may have served darker purposes. Lutz develops riveting suspense by slowly revealing the events that first sent Tanya/Amelia on the run, while pouring threats on her gritty heroine's increasingly tenuous bids at survival. Binge-worthy fare, especially for those drawn to strong female protagonists.--Tran, Christine Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Tanya Dubois, the enigmatic heroine of this enjoyable standalone from Lutz (How to Start a Fire), is the unhappy wife of the deceased Frank Dubois, who took a fatal-and unassisted-header down the basement stairs of their Waterloo, Wis., home. Since she fears the police will think she pushed Frank, Tanya decides to get out of Waterloo as fast as possible, and she holes up in a sleazy motel, the first of many she'll stay in, to call the mysterious Mr. Oliver, who grudgingly agrees to supply her with a new identity and some starter cash: it's clear he's done it before. Tanya becomes Amelia Keen in Austin, Tex., where she meets the beguiling but dangerous bartender Blue. It's soon clear that Amelia and Blue both have unsavory pasts, and the agreement the women reach sends both of them off with new names. While the pacing falters in places and some of the final reveals lack wallop, Lutz's complex web of finely honed characters will keep readers turning the pages.
