But not telling the whole truth is how some people survive. In The Passenger, by Lisa Lutz, a woman’s husband dies under mysterious circumstances and even though she didn’t kill him, she runs away and changes her identity. It soon becomes clear that this isn’t the first time she’s had to reinvent herself and it won’t be the last. This is a fast-paced thriller about someone with a past they need to escape.
