The Flight Attendant

Chris Bohjalian’s latest book is a thriller and with twists, turns and unexpected endings. I liked it, though not so much at the ending.

Cassie is a beautiful and reckless flight attendant.  She drinks too much, lies too often and is truly a mess.  She picks up lovers all over the place, generally one night stands.  And then one night in Dubai, she hooks up with Alex, who she met on the plane.  After a heavy drinking and exotic evening filled with passion and booze,  she wakes up in Alex’s hotel room to discover that he has been murdered.  Did she do it?  Was it a black out drunk?

The story continues with the twists and turns that I previously mentioned, only to end abruptly.  I will say no more.  Read and discover.  It’s worth it!
