What is Gone For Good all about?

Thirtysomething Guillaume Lucchesi (Finnegan Oldfield) thought he had drawn a line under the terrible tragedy which saw the two people he loved the most die: Sonia (Garance Marillier), his first love, and Fred (Nicolas Duvauchelle), his brother.

However, 10 years later, he’s with Judith (Nailia Harzoune), a woman who has made his life worth living again.

But Judith suddenly disappears during his mother’s funeral.

To find her, Guillaume will have to face all the truths that were hidden from him by his family and friends, as well as those that he has ignored for too long.

As Netflix says: “For better, but mostly for worse.”

Who is Harlan Coben?

Harlan, 59, was born in New Jersey and made a name for himself with 2001’s Tell No One.

Despite a host of novels before then – which all started in 1990 – Tell No One became an international best-seller.

Since then, Harlan has become one of the world’s most-read crime writers, and has won numerous awards.

His latest book, Win, was released this year and his stock in trade is twisty-turny stories with characters who have ‘a past’.

What other Harlan Coben adaptations are on TV and where can I watch them?

If you like the sound of Harlan’s book, the good news is that there are plenty of adaptations to get stuck into.

He’s teamed up with both Sky and Netflix in the recent past.

The Stranger starred Richard Armitage, Siobhan Finneran, Shaun Dooley, Dervla Kirwan and Jennifer Saunders and was released by Netflix in 2020.

After that, there was a Polish adaptation of The Woods and a Spanish version of The Innocent in the same year.

Then there was Safe, starring Michael C Hall, Amanda Abbington, Marc Warren and Laila Rouass.

Over on Sky, The Five starred Lee Ingleby, Sarah Solemani and OT Fagbenle in 2016.

There’s a lot to catch up on!
