Uncovered: 5 Good Reasons To Watch The New Series By Harlan Coben

The series "À découvert," available on the Prime Video platform since August 18th, is announced as one of the summer's must-watch series. This investigation led by three teenagers amidst family secrets and high school romances will keep you on the edge of your seat for the weeks to come. Here are 5 good reasons to watch this unique fiction, adapted from a novel by Harlan Coben.

1- To conduct the investigation

The series "À découvert" follows the adventures of Mickey, a teenager who has just arrived at Kasselton High School. While struggling to find his place in this new environment, his only friend disappears...

In this series, which is an adaptation of a novel by Harlan Coben, there is of course a mystery to be solved and Mickey will investigate with the help of valuable allies: the inventive Spoon and the discreet Ema.

For fans of Harlan Coben, one of the masters of American crime fiction, it should be noted that this series (titled "Shelter" in English) is the adaptation of the eponymous book, the first installment of a trilogy centered around Mickey Bolitar, the nephew of the famous character Myron Bolitar.

2- To savor the nostalgia of high school loves

In this perfect series to chill in the summer, all the ingredients are gathered to allow you to relax in front of your screen: a mystery to solve, of course, but also high school loves and family secrets!

Whether your high school years date back a few years or a few decades, you will be able to savor, not without a touch of nostalgia, the teenage romances of the series À découvert...

3- To appreciate a beautiful cast

As a series aimed at young adults, À découvert showcases promising young actors, namely Jaden Michael as Mickey, Adrian Greensmith as Spoon, and Abby Corrigan as Ema.

The three of them form a very endearing trio of teenage investigators, which is quite unprecedented in a Coben mystery.

While these young individuals embody their characters well, we can only applaud the performance of Constance Zimmer as Aunt Shira.

4- To uncover family secrets

In the series, Mickey went to live in Kasselton with his aunt Shira (instead of his uncle Myron as in the novel) after his father's sudden death in a car accident.

Throughout his investigation to find a girl from his high school, he will uncover the dark side of the town and the secrets of its inhabitants. But he will also obtain unexpected answers about deaths and disappearances that echo his own family history.

By unearthing long-buried family secrets, the hero will discover that the truth behind his father's tragic accident is much darker and more complex than he had imagined.

5- For the pleasure of being kept on edge.

As often in Harlan Coben's novels, the plot of the series "À découvert" takes great pleasure in confusing us and the scenario unfolds with an implacable mechanism until the final revelation.

Let me warn you right away: to follow the different intertwining stories, you will have to hold on tight! It is very likely that you will sometimes feel lost, but you will undoubtedly be gripped by the suspense and eager to get answers to the questions that each new episode raises.

In summary, you can count on Coben's talent to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the 8 episodes of this new series. If this presentation has intrigued and enticed you, know that the first three episodes are available on Prime Video since Friday, August 18th, and the others will follow at the pace of one new episode every Friday.
