Publisher Description

“A dead-serious thriller (with a funny bone)” (The New York Times Book Review), from the author of the New York Times bestselling Spellman Files series, comes the story of a woman who creates and sheds new identities as she crisscrosses the country to escape her past.

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 in the twenty-first century, 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. From heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, we are left to wonder…can she possibly outrun her past?

The Passenger’s white-knuckled plot and unforeseeable twists make one thing for certain: the ride will leave you breathless. “When the answers finally come, they are juicy, complex, and unexpected. The satisfying conclusion will leave readers rethinking everything and immediately turning back to the first page to start again. Psychological suspense lovers will tear through this thriller” (Library Journal, starred review).

Excellent read!

I started reading this book in hopes of getting inside of someone else's head and out of my own. I was able to do just that. This is an excellent read! Tanya was a strong character and you won't get bored with all the changes. Try it and see...you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Couldn't put it down

I have read all of the Spellman series books and really enjoyed them. I wasn't sure what to expect with this one but I couldn't put it down. I seldom give 5 stars but this book gets all 5.

Hard sell

This is an in between book that you read when you just want to cleanse your pallet before you start a serious novel. I did not find the lead character compelling and the story was hard to believe. The heroin in the story was really born under a very unlucky star. Even the cliffhanging twister was anti-climatic. For me, it was just not that great.
