The year is 1869. After a brutal triple murder in a remote community in the Scottish Highlands, a young man by the name of Roderick Macrae is arrested for the crime. A memoir written by the accused makes it clear that he is guilty, but the police and the courts must decide what drove him to murder the local village constable. And why did he kill his other two victims? Was he insane? Or was this the act of a man in possession of his senses? Only the persuasive powers of his advocate stand between the killer and the gallows at Inverness. In this compelling and original novel, using the words of the accused, personal testimony, transcripts from the trial and newspaper reports, Graeme Macrae Burnet tells a moving story about the provisional nature of the truth, even when the facts are plain

De verdwijning van Adèle Bèdeau by Graeme Macrae Burnet( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and Dutch and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manfred Baumann is a loner. Socially awkward and perpetually ill at ease, he spends his evenings quietly drinking and surreptitiously observing Adele Bd̈eau, the sullen but alluring waitress at a drab bistro in the unremarkable small French town of Saint-Louis. One day, she simply vanishes into thin air and Georges Gorski, a detective haunted by his failure to solve one of his first murder cases, is called in to investigate the girl's disappearance. He sets his sights on Manfred. As Manfred cowers beneath Gorski's watchful eye, the murderous secrets of his past begin to catch up with him and his carefully crafted veneer of normalcy falters. His booze-soaked unraveling carries him from Saint-Louis to the back alleys of Strasbourg. Graeme Macrae Burnet's masterful play on literary form featuring an unreliable narrator makes for a grimly entertaining psychological thriller that questions if it is possible-or even desirable-to know another man's mind

Sein blutiges Projekt Der Fall Roderick Macrae by Graeme Macrae Burnet( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

August 1869: Ein verschlafenes Bauerndorf an der Westküste Schottlands wird von einem brutalen Dreifachmord erschüttert. Der Täter ist rasch gefunden. Doch was trieb den 17-jährigen Roderick Macrae, Sohn eines armen Pächters, dazu, drei Menschen auf bestialische Weise zu erschlagen? Während Roddy im Gefängnis auf seinen Prozess wartet, stellen die scharfsinnigsten Ärzte und Ermittler des Landes Nachforschungen an, um seine Beweggründe aufzudecken. Ist der eigenbrötlerische Bauernjunge geisteskrank? Roddys Schicksal hängt nun einzig und allein von den Überzeugungskünsten seines Rechtsbeistandes ab, der in einem spektakulären Prozess alles daransetzt, Roderick vor dem Galgen zu bewahren. Sein brillanter Spannungsroman offenbart Graeme Macrae Burnet als außergewöhnliche neue Stimme im Genre des psychologischen Thrillers. Mühelos versetzt er den Leser mitten ins Schottland des 19. Jahrhunderts und zu den Anfängen der Kriminalpsychologie. Kunstvoll verquickt er dabei Rodericks eigene Aufzeichnungen mit Gerichtsunterlagen, medizinischen Gutachten und der Prozessberichterstattung. Während er die Annahmen der Leser über die eigentlichen Tathintergründe immer wieder raffiniert ins Leere laufen lässt, enthüllt sich die dunkle Wahrheit erst in einem fulminanten Gerichtsdrama
Das Verschwinden der Adèle Bedeau by Graeme Macrae Burnet( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keine Frage: Manfred Baumann ist ein Sonderling. Obwohl als Bankdirektor der elsässischen Gemeinde Saint-Louis in guter Stellung, tut sich der 36-Jährige schwer im Umgang mit Menschen. Umso wichtiger sind für den eigenbrötlerischen Junggesellen seine gewohnten Routinen: ein penibel geplanter Tagesablauf, die regelmäßigen Ausflüge nach Straßburg zu den leichten Mädchen von Madame Simone und die Besuche in seinem Stammlokal. Tag für Tag beobachtet er dort, meist schweigend, die blutjunge Kellnerin Adèle Bedeau. Bis sie eines Abends spurlos verschwindet. Manfreds Welt gerät ins Wanken, als Kommissar Georges Gorski die Ermittlungen im Fall Adèle Bedeau aufnimmt ... Wird Gorski, der noch immer schwer an einem lang zurückliegenden Ermittlungsfehler zu tragen hat, diesmal den richtigen Riecher haben und das plötzliche Verschwinden von Adèle aufklären, die wie vom Erdboden verschluckt zu sein scheint? Und was hat Manfred mit dem Fall zu tun, der auf einmal mit vergessen geglaubten Geistern seiner Vergangenheit kämpft? Nach seinem Bestseller "Sein blutiges Projekt" zeichnet Shootingstar Graeme Macrae Burnet erneut das Psychogramm eines Außenseiters, der von seinem eigenen Wahn an den Rand der Verzweiflung getrieben wird. In seiner schottischen Heimat wurde der Roman zum Kulthit
