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.

Remarkable

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.

Completely absorbing

Well written and masterfully narrated. A tragic story which provided an insight into highland life in the late nineteenth century.

A story without purpose...

The story is just an account of events 150 years ago in the scottish highlands.

If the history of Scotland is of interest to you then you might enjoy the book. The book is well written and the narration is fine.
