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
There are many things to like about this book, just as there are many things I didn't like. I wouldn't let these things stop me from reading it but I did feel that they took away from my overall enjoyment. (You can tell it's still a good book, otherwise these things wouldn't bother me so much.)
1. The first of these is that WE KNOW she has a drinking problem, you don't have to tell us (via EVERY character) all the time. When you start treating your readers like they're dumb, you lose them.
2. I' ...more
On a flight to Dubai, Cassie meets a very attractive man. As per her usual M.O., Cassie ends up having dinner with him, and drinking too much and she ends up in bed with him.
What happens next however is a first for Cassie: when she wakes up with him the next morning - she discovers blood on the pillow near her head and when she looks over at him she discovers that his neck has been slashed. She drank so much that she blacked out the night before and has no recollection as to what happene ...more

This novel is a complex international thriller. Suspenseful and intelligent!
"I awoke beside a dead man. I may have gotten away with murder." It is not the first time Cassie has blacked out after a night of untamed drinking. Cassie wakes up in a dense fog. This place is not her hotel. She is in someone's room in another hotel. And she is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Brace for Impact.

This is a thriller about a flight attendant that wakes up to find her one-night-stand date dead in bed next to her. This event triggers an investigation for the killer and what follows raises more questions than answers.
The book is narrated from alternating points of view and takes place (mostly) in Dubai and New York. I found the book intriguing, interesting, and character-driven.
The main character engages in self-destructive behavior and frequent alcohol binges. She reminded me a little bit of ...more
This novel starts off starts off at a breathless pace and rarely lets up. It ends with a taut, exciting finale as well.
Cassie Bowden is a flight attendant who doesn’t believe in moderation when it comes to alcohol and sex. When she wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai with a pounding headache and only some memories of the night before, she discovers the man she’d been flirting with on the flight over is dead beside her in bed. Blood is everywhere. She’s pretty sure she didn’t kill him. Why would sh ...more
Another addictive read from the talented Chris Bohjalian, and again, it's like none of his other books. I would classify this one as an international spy thriller, but that doesn't become obvious until later. At first it rivaled The Girl on the Train for most outlandish female alcoholic, only this time it's the girl on the plane.
Cassie seems to live a charmed jet-setting life as a flight attendant, getting her pick of international flights like Rome, Berlin, or Dubai, with NYC her home base. Act ...more
Chris Bohjalian is one of those authors I’ve been meaning to read for the longest time, I’ve heard nothing but great things about his books and was super excited that I would finally be reading one of his books, this one sounded exactly like the kind of book that I would end up loving and I had heard he was an excellent writer. After finishing and really thinking about this one before I wrote my review I can definitely say that yes, he is a fantastic author but this one really didn’t excite me a ...more
Regular readers of Chris Bohjalian have learned by now that you never know what you're going to get when you open one of his novels. Every single one is different. Because some of the enjoyment of Bohjalian comes with the surprise factor, I won't go into heavy detail about The Flight Attendant except to say that this book is more about the female lead character: Cassie than it is the overall plot line. Don't get me wrong, there is an intricate storyline to follow - one that is at once full of co ...more
