The novel sends out vines in all directions, its characters' tangled motives obscured by tragedy and lies.”— Lyndsay Faye, author of Gods of Gotham “A thriller with a fine literary pedigree...His Bloody Project offers an intricate, interactive puzzle, a crime novel written, excuse my British, bloody well.”— Steph Cha, Los Angeles Times “[ His Bloody Project ] had such an engrossing plot that I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it, so it was no surprise that Graeme Macrae Burnet’s excellent work was short listed for the Man Booker Prize...He was born and brought up in Kilmarnock and has lived in Prague, Bordeaux, Porto, and London. “— Library Journal , starred review“One of the most convincing and engrossing novels of the year.”— The Scotsman “ A truly ingenious thriller as confusingly multilayered as an Escher staircase.”— Daily Express “There is no gainstaying the ingenuity with which Burnet has constructed his puzzle..."— The Telegraph “…sly, poignant, gritty, thought-provoking, and sprinkled with wit.”— Publishers Weekly , starred review“[A] powerful, absorbing novel…Fiction authors from Henry James to Vladimir Nabokov to Gillian Flynn have used [an unreliable narrator] to induce ambiguity, heighten suspense and fold an alternative story between the lines of a printed text. Burnet, a Glasgow author, does all of that and more in this page-turning period account of pathos and violence in 19th-century Scotland… Has the lineaments of the crime thriller but some of the sociology of a Thomas Hardy novel.”— Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal “…recalls William Styron’s The Confessions of Nat Turner in the way it portrays an abused people and makes the ensuing violence understandable…

In the smash hit historical thriller that the New York Times Book Review calls “thought provoking fiction,” a brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish farming community in 1869 leads to the arrest of seventeen-year-old Roderick Macrae.few readers will be able to put down His Bloody Project as it speeds towards a surprising (and ultimately puzzling) conclusion.”— Financial Times “ His Bloody Project is an ingenious, artful tale of a 19th century triple murder in the Scottish Highlands.Though a novel—and shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize—it masquerades as the tale of a true crime, made up of a collection of historical documents supposedly unearthed by the writer, each bit shedding further light on what drove a 17-year-old to kill three people—including an infant—in his small crofting community.”— NPR " A stellar crime novel and a wrenching historical portrait, His Bloody Project also succeeds at lyrically questioning whether it's possible to know another man's mind—or even desirable.The interesting and innovative structure used by the author, where you feel like you are reading original historical records, sets the book apart from others of a similar genre and his skillful writing means the reader can’t help but empathise with the ‘murderer’.In addition to the gripping story, the book gives the reader a fascinating insight into Highland life at the time — its harshness, poverty and brutality. “— First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon"Psychologically astute and convincingly grounded in its environment…

They offer conflicting impressions of the accused; one interviewee recalls Macrae as a gentle and quiet child, while another details him as evil and wicked.
