The Flight Attendant : A Novel

Booklist

*Starred Review* Flight attendant Cassie Bowden is working the first-class cabin on the JFK to Dubai run and, not uncharacteristically, strikes up a flirtatious banter with the passenger in 2C, Alex Sokolov, a charming Manhattan hedge-fund manager. At the book's opening, Cassie wakes up in Sokolov's hotel room, disoriented from their night of binge drinking and repeated lovemaking. The sight of Sokolov's corpse in the bed next to her, his throat slit and the sheets bloody, effectively banishes Cassie's incipient hangover. What happens next is a series of misguided decisions that only someone with Cassie's shaky self-image can make: she lies to the FBI, her lawyer, and her family and unwisely tries to identify the mystery woman who briefly shared a bottle of vodka with them that night. Bohjalian is an unfaltering storyteller who crosses genres with fluidity, from historical fiction to literary thrillers. He is also that rare male writer who has mastered the female point of view with adroit credibility, and he is nonjudgmental and sensitive in his portrayal of Cassie's alcohol and sex addictions. As in previous novels, including The Sleepwalker (2017) and The Guest Room (2016), Bohjalian revisits the notion of what happens when an individual loses control of his or her environment in a read-in-one-sitting escapade that is as intellectually satisfying as it is emotionally entertaining.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2017 Booklist

Blackout drunk Cassie Bowden is used to waking up in strangers' beds, but what she discovers one morning in a sumptuous Dubai hotel suite is instantly sobering-blood-soaked sheets and the dead body of the handsome American hedge fund manager she met on her flight over. Even worse for Cassie, the assassin who executed him already regrets sparing the passed-out flight attendant. It's a killer set-up, and Bohjalian (The Sleepwalker) initially maximizes the dual plot lines: Cassie, flying on primal survival instinct, tries to stonewall investigators, testing the truth of the maxim that God looks out for fools and drunkards; hit woman Elena methodically closes in for the kill. Bohjalian's less successful in avoiding clichés or in making an espionage subplot plausible. Then, with about 50 pages to go it's as though the bell has rung for the final lap, with the author unceremoniously detonating a plot bombshell that triggers the frenetic, exciting, but not especially convincing sprint to the finish. Bohjalian's fans will still have fun. Agent: Jane Gelfman, Gelfman Schneider/ICM Partners (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

When she's traveling, Bohjalian's eponymous flight attendant Cassandra Bowden routinely gets black-out drunk, sleeps with a stranger, and steals trinkets to give as gifts. When she wakes up in a Dubai hotel next to a nearly decapitated one-night stand, she is not sure if she killed him or not. Cassandra is not a particularly agreeable character; in fact, she may be one of the most ignorant in the murder mystery field, doing almost everything possible to incriminate herself as she seeks solace in her usual patterns and can't keep her mouth shut. Fortunately, listeners know the truth of the events of that night well before she does, and it is in that dual plotting that Bohjalian manages to create some suspense. However, the ending is too contrived to be very believable. Erin Spencer, Grace Experience, and Mark Deakins provide balanced narration. The author is known for writing novels that cause his readers to think about social and historical issues, but this entry into thriller territory is disappointing. Verdict Regular fans of Bohjalian are used to far better from him. ["Readers who enjoyed the imperfect heroine in...The Girl on the Train and the anxiety-ridden paranoia of...Crime and Punishment will be hooked by...Cassie's struggle to untangle her life and regain her self-respect": LJ 12/17 starred review of the Doubleday hc.]-Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo © Copyright 2018.
