Publisher's Summary

Can you ever outrun your past?
From actress, producer, and writer Krysten Ritter, a psychological suspense novel about a woman forced to confront her past in the wake of small-town corruption.
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' 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 the reputations and lives of 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 miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of what happens when your past and present collide.

I admit I bought this on Krysten Ritter's name

This book is about five times better written than most of the dozens of thrillers that I have picked up over the years because they were on sale as Audible Daily Deal. I paid full price for this on the strength of the author's acting. This book has better characters, better dialogue, and a better story than nearly all.
The writer was extremely good at letting you know which character is talking and reminding you of who is who- both huge points in audiobooks. I didn't get to the end feeling completely satisfied, but it was definitely in the upper 95th percentile. The end felt a bit rushed. I would happily discuss this further, but I am not going to give anything away here. I hope the author writes a lot more books.
