Publisher's Summary

From the double Man Booker Prize-winner, a savagely funny tale that revisits the characters from the much-loved Every Day is Mother’s Day.
Muriel Axon is about to re-enter the lives of Colin Sidney and Isabel Field. It is 10 years since her last tangle with them, but for Muriel this is not time enough. There are still scores to be settled, truths to be faced and vengeance to be wreaked.


What the Critics Say

"The macabre and wonderfully funny plot has as many twists and turns as a well-made thriller" ( Standard)"Hilary Mantel's wit is wonderful and startlingly nasty" ( Sunday Times)
