Graeme Macrae Burnet is the author of the 'fiendishly readable' His Bloody Project, which was shortlisted for the 2016 Booker Prize and the LA Times Book Awards. It won the Saltire Prize for Fiction and has been published to great acclaim in twenty languages around the world.
His latest novel, Case Study has been longlisted for the 2022 Booker Prize, shortlisted for the Ned Kelly International Crime Prize and longlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize. Hannah Kent (Burial Rites) has called it 'a novel of mind-bending brilliance.'
He is also the author of The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau and The Accident on the A35 both set in the unremarkable town of Saint-Louis in the Alsace and featuring the downtrodden Inspector Georges Gorski.
"If Roland Barthes had written a detective novel, this would be it." - Literary Review
Case Study is set in London, 1965 and tells the story, through a series of notebooks, of a young woman who believes that a radical psychotherapist called Collins Braithwaite has driven her sister to suicide.
“A page-turning blast, funny, sinister and perfectly plotted," said The Times
Born and brought up in Kilmarnock, Graeme now lives in Glasgow.
