Graeme Macrae Burnet is one of Scotland’s brightest literary talents, winner in the Author of the Year category for the 2017 Sunday Herald Culture Awards (aka Scotland’s Oscars).
His second novel, His Bloody Project, concerns a brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish Highland community during the 1860s. Lauded by critics and hugely popular with readers, His Bloody Project won the Saltire Society Fiction Book of the Year Award, and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.
Graeme’s latest novel, The Accident on the A35, is a literary mystery that takes place in Saint-Louis. It features the diffident Inspector Georges Gorski investigating a seemingly unremarkable fatal car crash – but where has the victim, an outwardly austere lawyer, been on the night of his death? Darkly humorous, subtle and sophisticated, The Accident on the A35 is the spellbinding follow-up to Graeme Macrae Burnet’s debut noir novel The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau
