Overview

“A dead-serious thriller (with a funny bone)” (The New York Times Book Review), from the author of the New York Times bestselling Spellman Files series, comes the story of a woman who creates and sheds new identities as she crisscrosses the country to escape her past.

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 in the twenty-first century, 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. From heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, we are left to wonder…can she possibly outrun her past?

The Passenger’s white-knuckled plot and unforeseeable twists make one thing for certain: the ride will leave you breathless. “When the answers finally come, they are juicy, complex, and unexpected. The satisfying conclusion will leave readers rethinking everything and immediately turning back to the first page to start again. Psychological suspense lovers will tear through this thriller” (Library Journal, starred review).

I am a big fan of Lisa Lutz’s “Spellman “ series. They are clever, wicked witty and very entertaining. I was more than happy to find she had written something a little darker. I am not sure if I liked this book or not. It was different, that’s for sure. Sometimes I felt it was a little too contrived for my taste, too far fetched. Wasn’t the worst I ever listened to and it wasn’t the best.

This audio book was fabulous! It grabbed me right from the beginning. The story was well presented and kept you engaged. I never knew what was coming next.

This definitely kept me listening! The narration was spectacular and what was creepy is that the woman sounds just like another narrator named Grace Grant! This is the second time I've come across this. Rebekka Ross and Elizabeth Louise sound alike as well. It really is creep! lol. Anyway, I like how the story spread out the mystery of why she went on the run in the first place, which is what kept me listening because I really wanted to know. The ending I didn't really see coming and I'm pretty darn good at guessing endings.
