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.

Great

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.
