The Flight Attendant
by Chris Bohjalian
Cassie, a flight attendant, is working on a flight to Dubai when she meets Alex. They flirt on the flight, and spend the night together in Dubai. When Cassie wakes the next morning, Alex is dead. She has no recollection of him being killed. She has two options, call the police or leave.
This story is told from Cassie’s point of view, with occasional chapters from the mysterious Elena. Cassie is a self-loathing, black-out drunk. She wasn’t really likable, and her decision making was sometimes frustratingly bizarre.
A well-written suspense with a slow build. We know what happened to Alex very early in the book. Like, chapter two. What we don’t know is how things will play out with Cassie.
I received a digital copy of this book from Doubleday and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
