Book Review: The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

The Passenger, by author Lisa Lutz, is an intense and intriguing tale of a woman on the run told both in present time and in flashback emails.

The story starts as Tanya Dubois finds her husband accidentally dead in their home and flees…but it turns out she’s been on the run for even longer than that. And her real name isn’t even Tanya.

When she meets another kindred spirit named Blue, she thinks she can stop running for a bit. But then her world starts spinning so far out of control, it’s all she can do to survive by whatever means necessary.

As she travels from city to city, and identity to identity, she is chased by an even darker secret from her past, told via those emails, and both timelines are about to meet in a big way. If nothing else, it’s proof you can’t run from your past forever.

I really enjoyed this book, and couldn’t put it down. NY TImes best selling author Lisa Lutz has crafted a great tale full of devious deceptions and psychological thrills with The Passenger.
