Summary
‘A phenomenal, haunting debut’ Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl 'Dark, disturbing, and compulsively readable’ Ruth Ware, bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 Nothing burns as bright as the truth. It has been ten years since Abby Williams left home and scrubbed away all 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 economic heart, she begins to find strange connections to a decade-old scandal involving the popular Kaycee Mitchell and her friends—just before Kaycee disappeared for good. But as Abby tries desperately to find out what 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, her search threatens the reputations, and lives, of the community and risks exposing a darkness that may consume her. With tantalizing twists, slow-burning suspense, and a remote, rural town of five claustrophobic miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of what happens when your past and present collide. ********* 'In Abby Williams Ritter has created an appealingly feisty yet vulnerable heroine...An excellent debut' The Times 'Packed with suspense and moves at a cracking pace...Ritter is spot on. Abby makes a terrific, kickass heroine who you'll root for all the way' Daily Mail 'Dark but compulsively readable' Image Magazine
