Passenger (Lutz) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Lisa Lutz has written a number of clever comic mysteries about the Spellmans, a family of screwball sleuths. In The Passenger, she steps smartly out of her comfort zone to write a dead-serious thriller (with a funny bone).
Marilyn Stasio - New York Times Book Review

Tanya Dubois [is] the enigmatic heroine of this enjoyable standalone.... While the pacing falters in places and some of the final reveals lack wallop, Lutz’s complex web of finely honed characters will keep readers turning the pages.
Publishers Weekly

(Starred review.) 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.... [S]mart writing, and rapid pace delivered here. —Emily Byers, Salem P.L., OR
Library Journal

(Starred review.) Binge-worthy fare, especially for those drawn to strong female protagonists.

Lutz's pacing is excellent, and the interior monologue captures what it would be like not to have a name or, even worse, a valid ID..., but at its core, this is a novel about identity: a slippery notion which depends upon both how the world sees us and how we see ourselves.
