The Passenger / Lisa Lutz / 304 pages

"The best part of running full speed is not having time to look back."  Nora Jo Glass has been on the run ten years and circumstances have caused her to commit unspeakable acts.  "If you murder someone once, even with a tenuous argument for self-defense, you can blame it on chance, being at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong name.  But the next time you kill someone, you have to start asking all the hard questions.  Is it really self-defense or lifestyle choice?  When you kill another human being in cold blood, you kill part of yourself."  Ten years on the run and she was finally the cold-blooded murderer they'd always said she was.  "In the tradition of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train, The Passenger's scorching pace, unforgettable heroine, and ingenious plot will keep you turning pages deep into the night toward a stunning conclusion that will quite simply blow you away."

"When you're not sure what the future holds, you choose to stay in the present."
