In this impeccably plotted thriller, filmmaker Jack Quick makes an editorial choice for his documentary that leads to the release of a convicted man. Shortly after, another woman is murdered in similar circumstances, causing Jack to ask - has he helped a killer walk free? Greenlight is full of twists and turns the reader will never see coming. Greenlight's ending will leave you reeling...after all, everyone's guilty of something...
