The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian


I received an ARC from Netgalley, Doubleday Books and Chris Bohjalian in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence my opinion in any way.

This book is very suspenseful, a real page-turner.

Cassie, a flight attendant, wakes up after a blacked out drunken night lying next to a one night stand gone wrong: he’s dead, lying in bed next to her. What would you do when you wake up next to a dead man?

Cassie isn’t your average person: she is a flight attendant, a (mostly) functional alcoholic and of course, an unreliable narrator. She remembers meeting a woman Miranda during her mostly blacked out evening, but has difficulty finding her. What does Miranda know? How is she involved? Does she know Cassie woke up next to a killed man?

Throughout the book, the perspective shifts between Elena (Miranda) and Cassie building to a tense and well crafted climax.

Recommended if you enjoy suspense and murder mysteries.
