Sheila Greenwood is a young English woman from a humble background in northern England. Greenwood worked as a waitress in a café in Soho, London, where Sa’eed first met her. Like Isabella Seymour and Ann Hammond, Sheila Greenwood falls prey to Sa’eed’s dangerous seductive charms, in spite of the fact that her parents would completely disapprove of their daughter having an affair with a black man. Like Seymour and Hammond, Greenwood also commits suicide after her encounter with Sa’eed. In Sa’eed’s trial for his murder of Jean Morris, the prosecution suggests that Greenwood committed suicide as a result of Sa’eed’s emotional manipulation and abuse.
