This thriller set in Southern Indiana and written by actress Krysten Ritter definitely kept me at the edge of my seat. Something's wrong in Abby Williams's hometown of Barrens, Indiana. Her ecological legal team has been brought in to investigate potential wrongdoing by Optimal, a huge plastics company that's set up shop in Barrens. But getting to the truth won't be easy: Optimal employs half the town and has provided them tons of amenities. A new community center, a scholarship program for local teens... good deeds? Bribes? Or something much darker?

Although she doesn't quite get Southern Indiana right (quibbles that distracted me but likely wouldn't matter to most readers), Ritter's book will fit the bill for readers looking for a gritty, tense thriller.
