The book is called Bonfire, and it's a dark and mysterious crime thriller. EW released the following synopsis from the project:
Bonfire 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.
This book sounds like it will have a similar style to Jessica Jones, so fans are likely to jump on board right away.
Bonfire is set to hit bookshelves on November 7, 2017.
