A novel by

 
 
Can you ever outrun your past?

From actress, producer, and writer Krysten Ritter, a psychological suspense novel about a woman forced to confront her past in the wake of small-town corruption.

It has been 10 years since Abby Williams left home and scrubbed away all visible evidence of her small-town roots. Now, working as an environmental lawyer in Chicago, she has a thriving career, a modern apartment, and her pick of meaningless one-night stands.

But when a new case takes her back home to Barrens, Indiana, the life Abby painstakingly created begins to crack. Tasked with investigating Optimal Plastics, the town's most high-profile company and economic heart, Abby begins to find strange connections to Barrens' biggest scandal from more than a decade ago involving the popular Kaycee Mitchell and her closest friends - just before Kaycee disappeared for good.

Abby knows the key to solving any case lies in the weak spots, the unanswered questions. But as she tries desperately to find out what really happened to Kaycee, troubling memories begin to resurface, and she begins to doubt her own observations. And when she unearths an even more disturbing secret - a ritual called "The Game" - it will threaten the reputations and lives of the community and risk exposing a darkness that may consume her.

With tantalizing twists, slow-burning suspense, and a remote, rural town of just five claustrophobic miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of what happens when your past and present collide.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Bonfire is a stone-cold stunner - the writing is dazzling, the suspense is creeping, and the story of a woman returning home to face her past is brimming with emotion and truth. An extraordinary debut from a major talent." - Blake Crouch

"Dark, disturbing, and compulsively readable." - Ruth Ware
