Praise

“The Jessica Jones star makes an auspicious literary debut with Bonfire, spinning a suspenseful, psychologically gripping story.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Krysten Ritter made a name for herself by portraying some of the fiercest female characters in pop culture history. It should come as no surprise, then, that her debut novel carries that same level of strength and complexity on every single page… As Abby confronts her demons one by one, it becomes clear that she’s one hell of a complicated lady — and a protagonist that’s so damn appealing that it’s hard not to read the whole book in one sitting… Brilliant.”
POPSUGAR

“In this adroit debut the star of Marvel’s Jessica Jones proves her talents aren’t limited to acting… [Bonfire is] a thriller that delivers suspense, surprise and satisfaction.”
PEOPLE

“[Ritter brings an] unconventional, edgy approach to her engrossing suspense novel, Bonfire. Deliciously moody with a noirish undertone, Bonfire ignites a first-rate mystery resplendent with shadowy scenery, a tight plot and a lead character that is both fragile and strong… The melding of corporate corruption and the personal pollution that Abby endures elevates Bonfire, which blazes uncompromising storytelling and a believable, and shocking, finale. The exciting Bonfire shows that not only can you go home again, sometimes you must – to escape it and reconcile the past.”
ASSOCIATED PRESS

“Ritter has written a taut narrative that hinges around a satisfyingly lurid mystery. More than that, though, Ritter has given readers the kind of unforgettable narrator, full of quirks and bad habits and emotions, who is relatable in the best possible ways.”
NYLON

“I burned through Krysten Ritter’s hugely accomplished debut. Bonfire is dark, disturbing, and compulsively readable.”
RUTH WARE, New York Times bestselling author of In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10

Bonfire is a stone-cold stunner—the writing is dazzling, the suspense is creeping, and the story of a woman returning home to face her past is brimming with emotion and truth. An extraordinary debut from a major talent.”
BLAKE CROUCH, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter

“A vicious years-old small-town scandal makes the perfect backdrop for this gritty, moody mystery that will have readers ripping through the pages at top speed. 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 bestselling author of The Good Girl

“Actress Ritter (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) makes a triumphant fiction debut with this pulse-pounding thriller featuring a sympathetic, broken lead character… Pitch-perfect.”
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred)

“Ritter, lead actress on television’s Jessica Jones, is likely to attract readers with her name, but this strong, gritty debut is good enough to create its own fan following.”
BOOKLIST

“[Bonfire is] a fast-paced thriller that… introduces a tough female lead who’s easy to root for.”
