內容簡介


2016年最吸睛的犯罪驚悚小說,巧妙的故事設計,結局絕對超乎想像
2016年曼布克文學獎決選入圍名單


1869年偏遠的蘇格蘭農村社區發生了三起殘酷的謀殺命案,犯罪現場所有跡象都指向兇手為一位年僅17歲,名叫Roderick Macrae的男孩,Macrae被捕後也承認犯下罪行。為何害羞又聰穎的男孩會走向殺戮之路?他真的是自願扛起謀殺的罪名嗎?

故事的開始以警方偵訊目擊證人開始,兩個名為Culdie及Ross-shire的村民。兩人分別提供令警方相當矛盾的證詞,一位提到Macrae是一個溫柔安靜的好孩子,而另一位則提到Macrae既邪惡又狡詐。透過Macrae個人版本的謀殺事件陳述、法醫報告、犯人心理評估報告及法院判決書等,這些證據都無法解釋Macrae的殺人動機及真實的心智狀態。透過多層的敘事手法,讓讀者一步步走進兇手的圈套,直到真相大白。

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016 

A brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish farming community in 1869 leads to the arrest of seventeen-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? And will he hang for his crime?

Presented as a collection of documents discovered by the author, His Bloody Project opens with a series of police statements taken from the villagers of Culdie, Ross-shire. They offer conflicting impressions of the accused; one interviewee recalls Macrae as a gentle and quiet child, while another details him as evil and wicked. Chief among the papers is Roderick Macrae’s own memoirs where he outlines the series of events leading up to the murder in eloquent and affectless prose. There follow medical reports, psychological evaluations, a courtroom transcript from the trial, and other documents that throw both Macrae’s motive and his sanity into question.

Graeme Macrae Burnet’s multilayered narrative—centered around an unreliable narrator—will keep the reader guessing to the very end. His Bloody Project is a deeply imagined crime novel that is both thrilling and luridly entertaining from an exceptional new voice.
