Stay Close is based on Harlan's 2012 bestselling psychological thriller novel of the same name.

It follows Megan Pierce (played by Cush Jumbo) — a woman seemingly living a picture-perfect life with her fiancé, Dave, and their three children.

Well, her quintessential world comes crashing down when Lorraine, a friend from her past, comes back to remind Megan of the wild life she left behind.

And when I say things did a complete 180 for Megan, I mean things IMMEDIATELY started spiraling out of control — like getting caught up in a murder investigation.

Oh, and that murder I mentioned? Yeah, that was just one of many killings happening in the area.

But the suspense doesn't stop there! Then, the show throws in a bunch of characters we aren't sure we should trust, like these happy-go-lucky theater kids with a dark side...

...and an ex-lover named Ray (played by Richard Armitage) who's still desperately obsessed with Megan.

I mean, the man has a wall montage dedicated to her for crying out loud.

By the end of each episode, you'll be questioning everything and trusting NO ONE!
