Book Review – Bonfire


Bonfire by Krysten Ritter (Hutchinson) ISBN: 9781786331038

Abby Williams returns to her home town after a ten year absence. During her decade away she has managed to distance herself from the town, and rebuild her identity as a tough environmental lawyer.

Returning to Barrens, Indiana brings to the surface some old, unfinished business Abby thought she had long left behind. Tasked with investigating Optimal Plastics, the lifeblood of the town, Abby is not welcomed back with open arms. She had never been the popular kid, and coming home brings back some unpleasant memories. Some people have clearly not gotten over high school.

Her investigation into Optimal takes her back into the past where she rediscovers the scandal that rocked the town, and pieces together the mystery that led to the disappearance of popular, Kaycee Mitchell.

As Abby gets closer and closer to exposing a dark town secret, her life is put into peril. Someone will stop at nothing to prevent her from exposing the truth.

Bonfire is a fire-cracklingly good suspense thriller.
