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?

I don't consider myself a big fan of the Thriller genre. The premise really has to have something special for me to give it a go, and The Passenger definitely sounded like it would be intriguing!

The Passenger was one amazing reading experience! It was mysterious and so thrilling! I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat almost the entire time. The Passenger wastes no time, it explodes right off the bat with Tanya finding her husband's body and the suspense doesn't stop until you turn the very last page. 

There were some very minor details of this book that got a little lost; a few plot holes here and there, but that will not take away from the overall experience of this novel. Lisa Lutz crafts a heart-pounding story and takes you on a ride through a woman's life, through the before and after.  The story is delivered from Tanya's(and her aliases) point of view and it is done extremely well! 

This is my first novel by Lisa Lutz, although I have heard of her! Almost every bookworm I chat with will always recommend The Spellman's series, a series that I will now have to indulge in!

I found The Passenger to be a quick, heart-pounding read with a unique storyline. One that will keep you reading until the very last page. You'll simply be dying to know how it ends!

  1. Lutz does a brilliant job making you care about her protagonist. The writing is masterful, sharp and smart. The scenes are well-crafted and carefully plotted while keeping the quick pace, which encourages a sense of urgency while reading. The ending is very satisfying and worth the nail-biting that happened along the way. This is a perfect stuck-overnight-at-the-airport book. You'll be hugging your handbag closely and trying to keep tabs on your fellow travelers while racing to the end of this worthy thriller.

  2. Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.
