Claudia

How good are people? Let me tell you, Dee: people are as good as the pair of eyes they believe is on them…

When Claudia Talwar is called to meet a mysterious visitor in the reception of her Manchester office block, she can’t believe her eyes. It’s Samson Glaze, former hippy turned internationally famous entrepreneur, and the fifteen-years-absent father figure of her youth.

It doesn’t take much for Samson to convince her to help find his son, Reggie Glaze, who’s got into a bit of trouble: namely, he’s joined a group called Tarantula who wear black armbands and seem obsessed with ‘the next world’.

Before she knows it, Claudia finds herself swept into a dark adventure of solar power, a hammer wielding assassin, and the end of our world . . .

Reviews

With the blockbuster-movie strapline . . . and a plot-line that Ned Beaumann would be proud of you might well be going in expecting something extraordinary. And in a sense Claudia is extraordinary, yet it's a tale that's very firmly nestled in the quotidien. It's one of the keys I think to what makes Anthony Trevelyan's books work so well: the sheer everyday acceptability of events . . . I for one am looking forward to wherever Mr Trevelyan intends to take us next.
