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
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
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

After enjoying quite a few of Chris Bohjalian’s previous novels, I was quite excited to have the opportunity to read his upcoming novel, “The Flight Attendant”.
I thought this was a fantastic read!
Flight Attendant, Cassandra (Cassie) Bowden wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai. The first thing she realizes is that she’s not in her hotel room and the second thing she realizes is that she’s not alone. There is a man sle ...more
YES YES YES!! Last page turned. Cue the slow clap. This is a phenomenal character-driven mystery WITH A TWISTY, SATISFYING ENDING I will not soon forget.
I don’t know who said “the devil is in the details” but if that’s true, then Chris Bohjalian is the devil himself. This plot is intricate and complex with well-researched details and data providing clues for the reader in this story of international suspense.
Yes, much of the story is set in cushy locales and sumptuous hotels, but the ...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.
Cassie, a flight attendant, has ...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
⭐⭐⭐ / 5
My reviews and (maybe) some other random thoughts can also be seen at
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
You tell a lie, then another. And another. You need to tell the truth now, but it is far too late for that. A propensity for drinking mass quantities of alcohol and picking up strange men during flight layovers in foreign countries (view spoiler)[(How stupid can you be, lady?) (hide spoiler)] is going to work to a flight attendant's detriment. Bad decisions are made, one after another. As her mismanaged life spirals out of control, she finds herself suspected of murder, and is on a short li ...more
