Fans of murder mysteries will be very happy to know that Netflix's adaptation of Harlan Coben's best-selling novel The Stranger is shaping up to be a cracker and it has a wonderful cast too.


In terms of its plot, the mystery thriller is set in suburbia, where one stranger enters the lives of many, unfolding a web of lifelong secrets and lies.

The official synopsis states: "Adam Price seems to have a charmed existence. Two wonderful sons, a career in law, and most of all, a watertight marriage to his soulmate, Corinne, a teacher at the local school.

"Adam is living the dream. Until one night a stranger sits down next to him in a bar and says: 'She lied, Adam. Corinne made it up, she was never pregnant... One more thing. If I were you, I’d run DNA checks on your two boys.' As quickly as the stranger came, she is gone.

"Adam tries going after her, but it’s too late. As the stranger’s words eat away at Adam, he begins to investigate his wife."

In terms of its cast, The Stranger stars Richard Armitage, Stephen Rea , Siobhan Finneran, Hannah John-Kamen, Jennifer Saunders, Shaun Dooley, Paul Kaye, Dervla Kirwan, Kadiff Kirwan, Anthony Head, and up and coming young stars Jacob Dudman, Ella-Rae Smith and Brandon Fellows.
