Stay Close synopsis

Are you a fan of the brilliant author Harlan Coben? If so, you’re probably familiar with his work and know that Stay Close is based on his 2012 book titled the same name. It’s an eight-episode miniseries that follows the lives of four people who harbor dark secrets. But when those dark secrets resurface and come back to haunt them, what will they do?

Here’s the official synopsis via Netflix below:

"With trademark thrills, gripping suspense and secrets of past crimes beginning to unravel, Stay Close questions how much you really know someone. Four people each conceal dark secrets from those closest to them; Megan (Jumbo) a working mother of three, Ray (Armitage), a once-promising documentary photographer, Broome (Nesbitt) a detective unable to let go of a missing person’s cold case, and Lorraine (Parish), an old friend of Megan’s. As the past comes back to haunt them, threatening to ruin their lives and the lives of those around them, what will be their next move?"
