Ten years have passed since Muriel Axon was locked away for society’s protection, but psychiatric confinement has only increased her malice and ingenuity. At last free, she sets into motion an intricate plan to exact revenge on those who had her put away. Her former social worker, Isabel, and her old neighbors have moved on, but Muriel, with her talent for disguise, will infiltrate their homes and manipulate their lives, until all her enemies are brought together for a gruesome finale. Hilary Mantel’s razor-sharp wit animates every page of this darkly comic tale of retribution.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It would be hard to over emphasize the mean pleasure to be found in Vacant Possession.”

    New York Times

  • “Mantel imbues her writing with a unique combination of exhileration and dread…She shows us how fiction can lift us into the extraordinary.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Mantel is a master storyteller, and here she’s just having a wickedly good time.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “Hilary Mantel’s wit is wonderfully and startlingly nasty.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “Savage and funny black humour at its best.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Surprise revelations from start to finish mark Mantel as a remarkably clever writer whose second book, paired with her first, makes for wickedly pleasurable reading.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Like her fellow Brits Rose Tremain and Penelope Fitzgerald, Mantel continually produces novels that chart fresh terrain and derive from a wellspring of creative imagination. These two early novels herald the promise of the rich and varied literary career that followed. Recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • “An ingenious melodrama and a wintry portrayal of insulted and injured souls that William Trevor might well envy. With this novel Mantel achieved full technical mastery, and she’s only got better since.”

    Kirkus Reviews
