The PassengerThe Passenger by Lisa Lutz
Expected publication: March 1st 2016 by Simon & Schuster

Tanya Dubois finds her husband, Frank, dead at the bottom of the stairs. Afraid she’ll be accused of helping him to his untimely demise, she goes on the run. For Tanya this isn’t paranoia, but survival. We soon learn she’s been on the run for the past decade.

Assuming multiple identities as she begs, borrows, and steals (among other things) her way across country, Tanya and her many identities grapple not only with survival but with how to embrace the future while outrunning the past.

Interesting characters and a fast moving plot, this is fun, quick, light read worth suspending disbelief. Yes, some of the protagonist’s ruses stretch credibility, and the final twist is telegraphed too early in the story, but that doesn’t take away from this pure, unadulterated pleasure read.
