Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times best-selling 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.

I have read all of Lisa Lutz Spellman series, which are light and just enjoyable, and so I thought I knew what I was getting into when I started this book! Whoa! This is so not a light and funny book. I almost don't know how I feel about the main character. I had times when I enjoyed and sympathized with her, and yet there are moments in this book that I really did not like her or her actions! So I am torn. Did this book keep my interest? Absolutely! Was I at times horrified by the events of this story? Again, absolutely. I could not figure out how Ms. Lutz was going to redeem this character or end this book, so again I was surprised. I am not going to even try to summarize this plot because I am still thinking about it and I don't think it can be summarized succinctly. All I can say is, in the end, would I recommend this book! Yes, yes, yes!
As far as narration, I thought she did an admirable job portraying the different voices!
