Krysten Ritter to write psychological thriller
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.
