'A phenomenal, haunting debut.' Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl Kaycee Mitchell died. And everyone has been lying about it. For years. Ten years ago, Abby Williams left her hometown behind. Ever since, she has tried her best to forget the past. The sinister `Game'; the merciless bullying; the night of the bonfire, when The Game stopped. Most of all, she wants to forget Kaycee Mitchell. But now Abby must return home. Her task at hand: to investigate Optimal Plastics, the corporation that forms the backbone of the small town. A successful environmental lawyer, she swears things will be different. She is older. Sophisticated. Confident. But once she begins digging, the memories start creeping back and as past and present collide, the investigation turns deadly. How far would you go to keep the past hidden? 'Packed with suspense ... This portrait of small-town life by Breaking Bad and Jessica Jones actress is spot on.' Daily Mail 'Excellent ... an appealingly feisty yet vulnerable heroine.' The Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A phenomenal, haunting debut" -- Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl
"I burned through Krysten Ritter's hugely accomplished debut. Bonfire is dark, disturbing, and compulsively readable." * Ruth Ware, bestselling author of IN A DARK, DARK WOOD and THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 *
"In Abby Williams Ritter has created an appealingly feisty yet vulnerable heroin...An excellent debut" * The Times *
"The plot is packed with suspense and moves at a cracking pace. This portrait of small- town life by Breaking Bad and Jessica Jones actress Ritter is spot on. Abby makes a terrific, kickass heroine who you'll root for all the way" * Daily Mail *
"A first-rate mystery resplendent with shadowy scenery, a tight plot and a lead character that is both fragile and strong" * Washington Post *

“Interesting debut ”

This has a really dark feel to it, questioning memories and trying to escape the past. I quite enjoyed it although I think I may have been expecting more.

“A pretty good debut!”

This is one of those books that is simple, but has so many twists and turns in it that it’ll feel like you’re reading a more complicated book.
