His Bloody Project
A brutal triple murder in a remote farming community in northwestern Scotland in 1869 leads to the arrest of a young man by the name of Roderick Macrae. There's no question that Macrae is guilty, but the police and courts must uncover what drove him to murder the local village constable. And who were the other two victims? Ultimately, Macrae's fate hinges on one key question: Is he insane?Burnet has created a fascinating unreliable narrator in this historical revenge tragedy and courtroom drama. A story ingeniously recounted through the accused's memoir, trial transcripts, and newspaper reports, His Bloody Project is a riveting literary thriller.
