Netflix has released a poster and trailer for the upcoming TV adaptation of Harlan Coben’s The Stranger. The mystery thriller series stars Richard Armitage as Adam, a man living a charmed existence until a meeting with a stranger (Hannah John-Kamen) at a bar, who reveals a secret about his wife, turning his life upside down; take a look here…
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. “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. To his horror, his greatest fears are realised. When Adam confronts Corinne with evidence that she faked a pregnancy, she flees, leaving only a text message:
MAYBE WE NEED SOME TIME APART. YOU TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS.
DON’T TRY TO CONTACT ME. IT WILL BE OKAY.
JUST GIVE ME A FEW DAYS… PLEASE.
