Cassandra Bowden is no stranger to hungover mornings. She's a binge drinker, her job with the airline making it easy to find adventure, and the occasional blackouts seem to be inevitable. She lives with them, and the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night back together, already counting the minutes until she has to catch her crew shuttle to the airport. She quietly slides out of bed, careful not to aggravate her already pounding head, and looks at the man she spent the night with. She sees his dark hair. His utter stillness. And blood, a slick, still wet pool on the crisp white sheets. Afraid to call the police--she's a single woman alone in a hotel room far from home--Cassie begins to lie. She lies as she joins the other flight attendants and pilots in the van. She lies on the way to Paris as she works the first class cabin. She lies to the FBI agents in New York who meet her at the gate. Soon it's too late to come clean-or face the truth about what really happened back in Dubai. Could she have killed him? If not, who did?...

The Flight Attendant Reviews
Chris Bohjalian has done it again!
Readers of his work, by now, should just come to expect a literary surprise each time they open his newest book! The Flight Attendant is no exception.
What begins as a somewhat slow burning, character driven mystery soon escalates into an international espionage thriller. It happened so quickly I nearly wasn't aware of it.
Granted, Cassie, the flight attendant, is a train wreck waiting to happen. To say she is an alcoholic is like saying the Vatican is a small c ...more
4 “brace yourself for impact” stars to The Flight Attendant! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟
Thanks to all my Goodreads friends who recommended this gem! The Flight Attendant grabbed me from the very first page, as I was introduced to Cassie, a flight attendant with a serious alcohol problem who wakes up to the dead body of the man she met the day before on her flight to Dubai.
Cassie doesn’t remember if she killed Alex, or if someone else could have entered the room. Retracing her memories from the night before, she r ...more

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT is the first book I've ever read by Chris Bohjalian but it certainly won't be the last! Once I started reading, the twists and turns kept on coming and I could not put it down.

This was my first novel by Chris Bohjalian and I have very mixed feelings about it.
You could definitely tell that Bohjalian did his research for this book. For the cities, the details, the flight attendants, the laws talked about, everything. I thought The Flight Attendant was incredibly detailed, and I really enjoyed the ...more
The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian
Book Review: 3 out of 5 star rating
Cassie Bowden is a bit of a mess. Like her father, she drinks too much. She drinks so much, she actually blacks out and doesn’t remember much of the night before on those mornings when she wakes up with a hangover. But one morning is a bit different. She wakes up next to a man who has had his throat slit. Should she call the police or will she be blamed? Should she be blamed? Did the guy attack her the night before ...more
Actual rating: 3.5 stars
Much to my embarrassment I have not heard of this author prior to my perusal of the Edelweiss catalog in a quest for a captivating ARC, although I later came to know that plenty of his books have been well-received both by the readers as well as the critics. Noticing the theme-anticipating title The Flight Attendant was sufficient to make me take the plunge and click the 'request' button, considering that I have been nurturing an interest in the mystery/thriller novels fo ...more
4.5 "Why you shouldn't drink" stars!
You think YOU have problems. Imagine waking up next to a dead guy!
That’s what happened to Cassie, a flight attendant with a predisposition to blackouts and one-night stands. One minute she’s in a cute little uniform serving a drink to this hot cologned businessman high in the sky, the next minute she’s naked, sharing booze and body juices with him in a fancy-schmanzy hotel in Dubai. Same old same old to her, until she wakes up with a bloody corpse lying next t ...more
