Reviews

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER - A USA TODAY BESTSELLER

"Filled with turbulence and sudden plunges in altitude, The Flight Attendant is a very rare thriller whose penultimate chapter made me think to myself, 'I didn't see that coming.' The novel--Bohjalian's 20th-- is also enhanced by his deftness in sketching out vivid characters and locales and by his obvious research into the realities of airline work." --Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

"An expertly turned thriller... An assured novel about reckoning not just with some ruthless bad guys, but private sadness as well... [Bohjalian]'s developed a graceful hand at thriller mechanics, smoothly shifting from Cassie's private paranoia to the intricacies of spycraft and mercenaries to the public tabloid sensation she's become. He's back-loaded the story with twists, from ones that were hinted at early to left-field surprises. And the brisk and busy ending is a fireworks show of redemption, revelation and old-fashioned gunplay." --USA Today

"The stakes couldn't be higher (literally) as Cassandra pieces together a mystery while working 40,000 feet above ground in Chris Bohjalian's gripping The Flight Attendant." --Cosmopolitan

"Bohjalian twists the tension tight and keeps the surprises startling." --Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"A magnificent book...sleek and gorgeous...This is a Master Class in fiction." --Augusten Burroughs

"The author provides enough twists for a roller coaster fan... The beauty of the book is that, along with the politics of the plot, Cassie's humanity comes through...the last 100 pages turn tense as you try to follow the unexpected but believable surprises Bohjalian has in store and answers whether Cassie can find salvation." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A high-octane thriller that will have you holding your breath with every page...As if ripped from today's headlines, Bohjalian paints a vivid portrait of death and despair on a canvas of Russian espionage." --Fredericksburg Free Lane-Star

"[Bohjalian's] 20th novel...combines popular tropes with a serious examination of social issues. Binge-drinking flight attendant Cassandra Bowden wakes up with another bad hangover in a Dubai hotel room and finds the man she spent the night with lying dead beside her... What really happened? And what are the consequences of addiction, deception, and denial? Fans are lining up." --Library Journal

"Flight attendant Cassie Bowden: a self-destructive alcoholic who favors one-night stands, a gifted liar, a petty thief. But she's also someone we can relate to: a soul damaged during childhood, terribly alone, and desperate for love... Readers who enjoyed the imperfect heroine in Paula Hawkins's The Girl on the Train and the anxiety-ridden paranoia of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment will be hooked by this murder mystery." --Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Bohjalian is an unfaltering storyteller who crosses genres with fluidity, from historical fiction to literary thrillers...a read-in-one-sitting escapade that is as intellectually satisfying as it is emotionally entertaining."--Booklist (Starred Review)
