Harlan Coben’s THE FIVE on Netflix
This is a ten episode British crime drama on Netflix.
Twenty years after 5 year old Jesse disappears when tagging along after his older brother and his brother’s friends, his DNA turns up at the scene of a woman’s murder. Is Jesse alive? That would be great news! Has something so bad happened to Jesse while he was missing that he has become a murderer? Not such great news. One of his brother’s friends has grown up to be a police detective and his brother is a lawyer who also finds missing people. All four friends have professions and lives that intersect with the mystery. The brother (played by Tom Cullen) and the police detective push to find Jesse, and that is the central theme of the show, although there are also several murders to be solved along the way. The show is set in Britain and is full of wonderful British actors.
The story is terrific, the writing and direction are great, and all the actors are wonderful. This is a fabulous show.
I loved it.
