  1. Dear Graeme,

    I just finished reading HIS BLOODY PROJECT, which absolutely blew me away. I devoured it in nearly one sitting, and found the sheer energy and rich storytelling to be brilliant and compulsively readable. CONGRATS! I can’t wait to read your next book.

  2. That was a gobsmacking read, absolutely loved it. Had visited the area in 1979, so nice to see it featuring in a novel of this calibre. Planning to come back in the near future.

  3. Dear Graeme

    I have been awake for most of the night reading His Bloody Project till my eyes ached . It is astounding to learn that this is a novel, and not an actual account . So unbelievably skilfully written in style and content . I shall be singing it’s praises to everyone I know .

  4. Dear Graeme there is nothing to add to the above comments. His Bloody project is by far the best book I have read in ages. I had a bundle of six books for my birthday and yours was the only one that gripped me. The cover of the book was so convincing adding a hint of what was to come. I am now going to buy your other books and await with immense delight and also a little trepidation to find out what other delights your books have in store. Keep on writing, your style is so ‘novel’ that we need more like you to inspire more people to read.
