If anyone was to look at my bookshelf or the books on my kindle, you’d think I was planning a murder. The only books I read are crime, mystery and thriller. I just love a good murder mystery story. The books you can’t put down because there’s a twist in every chapter. Well, Harlan Coben is probably one of the most well-known authors in the world. He is known for his thrillers so when I heard about this show, I was dying to see it. You know you’re going to be “safe” when watching something that Coben has made because he’s excellent at creating mysteries.

Safe is no exception. It’s got depth, it’s got twists, its got the drama. It’s excellent and every murder mystery fan should be watching this show right now. With just eight episodes, the show will have you hooked from start to finish, even leaving you wanting more. It’s bingeable, I couldn’t stop myself and managed to watch it all in a day (yes, I have no life).

The main core of the cast is likeable and you easily find yourself rooting for them. The show manages to keep the audience in the dark about everything until the finale episode and then it delivers one hell of a punch. It was a punch I didn’t see coming. It’s one of the best mystery TV shows I have ever had the pleasure of watching. There’s so much to this story.

Going by the ending, I doubt there’d be a second season but that’s okay because everything gets wrapped up and it’s a satisfying ending. Although I would love more, I’d be happy with just a one-off season. However, I would like more Harlan Coben TV dramas, please. Safe is available on Netflix now!
