Krysten Ritter may have been busy bringing Jessica Jones to life, but the actress also found time to write her first novel.
Titled Bonfire, the debut novel is a psychological thriller that will focus on small-town corruption as environmental lawyer Abby Williams returns to her hometown after ten years to investigate Optimal Plastics, a local company, of dumping chemicals in local water. But in the process, Abby starts digging into the years-old disappearance of a former high school bully of hers, which in turn, leads her to an even darker secret about the town.
“As a huge fan of psychological suspense novels, I was so thrilled to take on the challenge of writing my first book,” said Ritter in a statement. “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.”
The novel will be published by Crown Archetype, and is scheduled for release on Nov. 7.
