Beschreibung von Audible

Editors Select, November 2017

The author is currently well known for the super-strong badass hero she plays in Netflix's Marvel universe, but the character she's written here has a strength and spunk that makes her a superhero of another kind. Lawyer Abby Willams' return to the small town in which she grew up will require her to take on not only the area's biggest employer in an environmental crimes investigation but also the traumas of her youth and the personal fallout she's dealt with for years. The story, full of mind games and suspense, moves along thanks to rich character development as you meet the characters in this sad and suspect town, Karissa Vacker's effectively moving narration, and the tension that builds to one satisfying resolution. —Abby, Audible Editor 

Inhaltsangabe

“A phenomenal, haunting debut.” (Gillian Flynn)

Nothing burns as bright as the truth.

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’s 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 reputations, and lives, in 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 square miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of what happens when your past and present collide

Bonfire ushers in a bold new voice to the suspense genre. I can't wait to see what Ritter dreams up next." (Mary Kubica, New York Times best-selling author of The Good Girl)

endlessly impressed!

i am blown away by this novel. the characters had such depths and were yet so unpredictable.
it's both written and read i might say, perfectly. couldn't stop listening, binged it in one day. haunting. still thinking about it daaays later and unable to find anything like this to meet my, now even higher, standards.
