Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter will publish her debut novel in November.
The book, called Bonfire, is described as a pyschological suspense.
The story follows 28-year-old Abby Williams, who returns to her small hometown after a 10-year absence as an environmental lawyer sent to investigate Optimal Plastics, the town’s largest company and economic heart, accused of illegal dumping of toxic chemicals in local water.
Her findings lead her to revisit the town’s biggest scandal—the disappearance of a girl who had been one of Abby’s prime torturers in high school. As Abby tries to find out what really happened all those years ago, she unearths an even more disturbing secret, the scope of which is far bigger and more twisted than she could have imagined.
Speaking about her book, Ritter said: “As a huge fan of psychological suspense novels, I was so thrilled to take on the challenge of writing my first book.
This was an exciting opportunity for me to explore a character journey and really get inside the head of my protagonist, a process that has a lot in common with how I prepare to play a role.”
Bonfire will be published on November 9.
