Publisher's Summary

A brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish farming community in 1869 leads to the arrest of 17-year-old Roderick Macrae. There is no question that Macrae committed this terrible act. What would lead such a shy and intelligent boy down this bloody path?
Presented as a collection of documents, His Bloody Project opens with a series of police statements taken from the villagers, which offer conflicting impressions, throwing Macrae's motive and his sanity into question.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016.


What the Critics Say

"A truly ingenious thriller as confusingly multi-layered as an Escher staircase." ( Daily Express)
"The Man Booker judges got it right: this really is one of the most convincing and engrossing novels of the year." ( The Scotsman)

Loved it, just a great read. From start to finish. I have spent a lot of time in the Scottish Highlands and this tale gives you a real sense of its historical way of life. The story itself is gripping.

Brilliantly written and narrated. I was totally absorbed into the lives it describes. I have read the book and found it's audible equivalent superb. My maternal grandmother came from a crofting community which she remembered as harsh but community spirited in a way our urban world has largely lost. I will read and listen to this novel many times I am sure.
