As a fan of Ritter’s acting, I was excited to read her crime debut. True to her own experience, Ritter’s characterisation is fantastic throughout, dragging you into the life of Abby Williams, an environmental lawyer assigned a case in her hometown involving a local plastics company who may be poisoning the water. Is a disappearance from William’s own childhood connected? This book is pure thriller with twists and turns to keep you enthralled and a cast of characters you won’t forget!

Kaycee Mitchell died. And everyone has been lying about it. For years.
Ten years ago, Abby Williams left her hometown behind. Ever since, she has tried her best to forget the past. The sinister `Game'; the merciless bullying; the night of the bonfire, when The Game stopped.
Most of all, she wants to forget Kaycee Mitchell.
But now Abby must return home. Her task at hand: to investigate Optimal Plastics, the corporation that forms the backbone of the small town. A successful environmental lawyer, she swears things will be different. She is older. Sophisticated. Confident. But once she begins digging, the memories start creeping back and as past and present collide, the investigation turns deadly.
How far would you go to keep the past hidden?
