Two weeks ago, I had no idea who Harlan Corben was. One week ago, I binged Netflix's adaptation of #TheStranger in, like, two days. This week, I'm binging their adaptation of his book Safe. I now want them to adapt everything he's ever written.

But the situation takes a turn for the worse when Jenny, Tom’s oldest daughter, goes missing along with her boyfriend. Tom enlists girlfriend Sophie, a police detective, to help locate the teens, but his new partner is working her own agenda. As the investigation intensifies, Tom unearths dark secrets about the people closest to him in his affluent neighbourhood. The drama series was created by mystery novelist Harlan Coben.”
