Read an Extract from Man Booker Prize-Shortlisted His Bloody Project by Graeme Macrae Burnet

As soon as we read the book we knew we had to publish it. ‘His Bloody Project explores primary ideas about storytelling and truth-telling,’ our publisher Michael Heyward wrote, ‘about justice, sanity, reason and feeling, as if the form of the novel was being put together before your eyes. It is a puzzle of a book but you will have to experience for yourself the brooding drumbeat of its narrative. The moment I finished I wanted to begin again to discover where I had been and how Graeme Macrae Burnet managed to create his masterful tale.’
