Created by Krysten Ritter
Krysten Ritter, the star of Netflix's Jessica Jones, has written a detective thriller, 2017's Bonfire. And not only doesn't it suck, but it's been surprisingly well received!
Hotshot environmental lawyer ABBY WILLIAMS has a pretty swell life in Chicago, worlds away from Barrens, Indiana -- a place she gladly put in the rear view over ten years ago.
But when Barrens' biggest employer, Optimal Plastics, is accused of dumping toxic waste into the local groundwater, Abby is dispatched to her old hometown to investigate -- just in time for her high school reunion.
Yeah, I know -- it sounds like a plotline from Riverdale or something, but Ritter can actually write. Abby's a delight; a flawed but credible hero, caught up in an investigation that threatens to spiral out of control, and somehow keeps pulling her back to a dark and troubled past she's spent years trying to escape.
So, is this a fluke, or is there a sequel in the works?
