Books
A brutal triple murder in a remote northwestern crofting community 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? A story ingeniously recounted through the accused's memoir, trial transcripts and newspaper reports, 'His bloody project' is a riveting literary thriller that will appeal to fans of Hannah Kent's 'Burial rites'.
