Graeme Macrae Burnet

Graeme was born and brought up in the industrial town of Kilmarnock in the west of Scotland and now lives in Glasgow. He has also lived in the Czech Republic, France, Portugal and London. His first novel The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau - “a captivating psychological thriller” (The Herald) - is set in the small town of Saint-Louis in France and tells the story of the disappearance of the eponymous waitress and the impact of this event on the lives of an ill-at-ease outsider, Manfred Baumann, and a disenchanted detective, Georges Gorski. It was something of cult hit. His second novel, His Bloody Project, was shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker prize. It tells the story of a triple murder carried out by a seventeen-year-old crofter in a tiny Scottish village in 1869. It has been called “astonishing” (The Telegraph), “fiendishly readable” (The Guardian), “spellbinding” (The Financial Times) and “masterly” (New York Times), and is set to be translated into more than a dozen languages. It has also been optioned for the screen by Synchronicity Films. He is currently working on a follow-up to his first novel.
