Harlan Coben has been known for years as a great writer, with Tell No One and Missing You, and now he’s taken his works to Netflix, with a brand new Original miniseries called: Safe, presenting a nice compact story in 8-episodes, without the fluff that too many shows have. Besides for Coben’s ability to draw people in, the show stars Michael C. Hall, Marc Warren, Amanda Abbington, and Amy James-Kelly.
Living in a gated community, Tom Delaney (Hall) has his life torn apart. Already dealing with his two children alone, after the death of his wife a year before, his daughter Jenny (James-Kelly) goes missing, and in his search to find her he gets help from his friend Pete (Warren) and his girlfriend/neighbor cop Sophie (Abbington).
This show is fast-paced, intriguing, and intense, using a series of flashbacks and great storytelling, to bring a complete story to your screens. I highly recommend this murder-mystery and give it a 9 out of 10.
