Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

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 picked this book up because of the premise – it sounded so interesting and twisty.

On the whole, this was a really good book. I had no idea what was going on most of the time, but it was so fun to try and put the pieces together as I learned more about Tanya.

I found this to be really compelling, and fun to read because of all the turns the story takes. It was also pretty unpredictable.

In the end, I was left with some unanswered questions but overall this was a great read (and not easy to talk about story-wise without getting into specifics, which I don’t want to spoil!).
