His Bloody Project by Graeme MaCrae Burnet. Published by Skylark

Burnet takes the typical mystery format and turns it on its head in this engaging read. The author, looking into a triple murder in Scotland in 1869, turns up a treasure trove of information about the case, which he then uses to tell his story. Roderick Macrae is only 17 when he’s arrested for a brutal triple homicide in a small Scottish village. Told with the aid of the author’s “found documents”, such as police reports, interviews of villagers, court transcripts and Roderick’s own journal, readers will be pondering whether or not Roderick is actually guilty. I don’t want to say much more because I don’t want to drop any spoilers, but if you are looking for a unique and engrossing mystery, you can’t do any better than this
