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.
"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)
