Originally published 2016-02-03: Find out how many lives one woman can live in The Passenger by Lisa Lutz
The Passenger by Lisa Lutz is a strange trip, a story told in slices of life demarcated by the identities taken on by the lead character. The story unfolds in waves, and each time you get a little more information, you end up with even more questions than you had before.
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.
Lisa Lutz weaves together an awkward tapestry of all the lives lived by one woman on the run.
And it’s not just one death that sends this woman flying across the country in search of a new life and identity. As the story progresses, you find out just how deep her deception goes, and how much tragedy one woman can endure before she finally reaches her breaking point.
I gave this book five of five stars, because I had trouble putting it down, and I didn’t see the ending coming. If you love a thrill ride that leaves you with questions until the very end, grab your copy of Lisa Lutz’s novel now!
