The Assassination Of Margaret Thatcher
The title story was received with immediate outrage by British Conservatives who accused Mantel of advocating assassination of political figures who evoke negative public opinion. But it is just a what if? fantasy, no reason to get knickers in a twist.
I'm not sure if these stories appeal specifically to women of a certain age but I devoured them and wanted more. I highly recommend this book.
UPDATE: Here is a clip from the audiobook that the publisher sent to me. It's the title story read by Jane Carr. Give it a listen.
