Graeme Macrae Burnet

Graeme Macrae Burnet was born in Kilmarnock and now lives in Glasgow. He is the author of four novels, The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau, His Bloody Project, The Accident on the A35 and Case Study.

His Bloody Project was shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker prize, the LA Times Mystery Book of the Year and the European Crime Fiction prize and won the Saltire Prize for Fiction and the Vrij Nederland Thriller of the Year. It has been variously described as “astonishing”, “fiendishly readable” and “spellbinding” and has been published in twenty languages.  

Case Study was published in October 2021 to wide critical acclaim. Hannah Kent called it “a novel a mind-bending brilliance.” The Bookseller described it as “a thrilling investigation into the nature of sanity and identity.”

Graeme was named Author of the Year in the 2017 Sunday Herald Culture Awards and has appeared at festivals and events all over the world.
