For Gender Transfer
In the book, The Stranger is finally revealed to be a man named Chris Taylor.

Shocked by the revelation that his upbringing was not actually his biological father, Chris devoted himself to exposing the secrets of others and punishing them for deceiving them.

Utilizing information he procured while working for an organization that assists ladies with faking a pregnancy, he converges with a gathering of others who have comparable stores of individual information, and they begin to find targets for intimidation.

While others are in it for the money, Chris sees himself as an instrument of justice.
However, on Netflix, the stranger is actually a woman.

This change was suggested by the novel’s author, who expressed his dislike for the adaptations, which are the exact repetitions of the raw material.

In the end, she said that the decision to change the role was due to the sheer, excessive power of actress Hannah John-Kamen’s audition.

New characters
D.C. Wesley Rose – the cop who plays Katif Kirwan, who works with DC Johanna Griffin – was made explicitly for the show and doesn’t show up in the book.

Former corrupt policeman John Kuntz is making this on the Netflix version, but surprisingly, they saw that he was entitled to change his surname to “Katz.”
