From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Midwives and The Sleepwalker, 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 with the accompanying self-loathing. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room, she tries to piece the previous night together, already 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 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, reckless self-disregard, and murder far from home.

AUTHOR TRACK: Chris Bohjalian’s most recent previous title, The Sleepwalker, hit the USA Today and New York Times bestseller list. The hardcover edition of The Flight Attendant debuted at #8 on the New York Times bestseller list; it also appeared on the USA Today list, the Wall Street Journal list, and the national Indiebound list, signaling good things for the paperback.

TELEVISION NEWS: Kaley Cuoco, of the wildly popular show The Big Bang Theory, has optioned the rights to produce and star in a limited series adaptation, which was just picked up by Warner Brothers. The series will start filming this fall.

READING GROUP POTENTIAL: Cassie is a fantastic and complicated character, joining a host of unlikable and unreliable female protagonists in thrillers (such as The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl). Readers will love discussing her motivations and choices.

AVIATION: Chris has long been obsessed with air travel and for this novel has interviewed countless flight attendants for their best stories. The details he reveals are outrageous, bizarre, hilarious, and just plain addictive.

Chris Bohjalian is the author of eighteen books, including The Guest Room; Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands; The Sandcastle Girls; Skeletons at the Feast; The Double Bind; and Midwives. His novel Midwives was a number one New York Times bestseller and a selection of Oprah’s Book Club. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages, and three of his novels have become movies (Secrets of Eden, Midwives, and Past the Bleachers).

Author Social Media:

“Filled with turbulence and sudden plunges in altitude…. The very rare thriller whose penultimate chapter made me think to myself, ’I didn’t see that coming.’” —Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

“An expertly turned thriller.” —Mark Athitakis, USA Today

“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)

“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. Read it before Kaley Cuoco stars in the upcoming series!” Cosmopolitan
