Summary

Four years ago Eliza Dacey was brutally murdered. Within hours, her killer was caught. Wasn't he? 

So reads the opening titles of Jack Quick's new true-crime documentary. A skilled producer, Jack knows that the bigger the conspiracy, the higher the ratings. Curtis Wade, convicted of Eliza's murder on circumstantial evidence and victim of a biased police force, is the perfect subject. Millions of viewers agree. 

Just before the finale, Jack uncovers a minor detail that may prove Curtis guilty after all. Convinced it will ruin his show, Jack disposes of the evidence and delivers the finale unedited: proposing that Curtis is innocent. 

But when Curtis is released, and a new victim is found bearing horrifying similarities to the original murder, Jack realises that he may have helped a guilty man out of jail. And, as the only one who knows the real evidence of the case, he is the only one who can send him back....

Critic reviews

"Outstanding...an absorbing thriller told with heart and wit. Morality and ambition clash on a journey full of twists as [this] takes readers from the cut-throat media landscape to a sleepy town full of secrets." (Jane Harper, best-selling author of The Dry and Force of Nature)

"A hugely-original premise, a guilt-ridden protagonist, a plot that won't lie down. A great debut." (Chris Hammer, author of Scrublands
