Description

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER A USA TODAY BESTSELLER A NATIONAL INDIEBOUND BESTSELLER From the author of The Guest Room, a powerful story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: A flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened. 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, 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? Set amid the captivating world of those whose lives unfold at forty thousand feet, The Flight Attendant unveils a spellbinding story of memory, of the giddy pleasures of alcohol and the devastating consequences of addiction, and of murder far from home.

Professional reviews

"Erin Spencer is the main narrator for this psychological thriller focusing on an alcoholic flight attendant, Cassie Bowden, who makes poor choices in life. After her latest one-night stand, she gets pulled unknowingly into a world of espionage. Spencer does an admirable job with Cassie's character, while Grace Experience narrates scenes involving a woman on Cassie's trail. Mark Deakins brings gravitas to his limited but effective reading of FBI transcripts. It's not clear why Experience is used here as a second narrator, as Spencer could have handled the load herself. Despite a rushed ending, the interesting plot moves effectively, with Spencer transitioning smoothly between the characters in Cassie's world--family, friends, colleagues, her lawyer, and others.
