Three women are struggling to escape the clutches of their pasts. Cass is beseiged by the press with news about the grandmother she thought was dead. Livia is now in a safe house under an assumed name, cut adrift from her last twenty-five years. And Julia will settle her demons by starring in a cycle of revenge plays . . .
It's difficult to use the plot selections given to describe this book--it would be better described as nonexistent. As you read this book you want so much to develop empathy with at least one of the characters but they never rise to the level of empathetic figures. It seems the intent of the author is to delve into the darker recesses of the characters' feelings and discover the cause of their fatal flaws as you discover their humanity. The circumstances of the novel defy believability, the whole thread of genetic predisposition to murder is superficial, and the behaviors of the main and supporting characters defy rationale in the modern world in which the book is set. The only compelling aspect of this novel is the hope that the story and/or characters will become compelling with the coming chapters.
Twenty-five years ago Livia Claughton was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing her husband and his mistress. The trial judge called her a harpy while passing the sentence. The moniker stuck and when Livia was paroled at seventy-five years of age after serving her full sentence, the tabloid press covered the event.
Cass Evesham, a high flyer stockbroker never even knew that Livia was her grandmother until the media tracked her down. Out of curiosity and a sense of family, Cass visits her grandmother in Cumbria, a meeting that is fraught with tension and other suppressed emotions. It is only when Livia's life is placed in danger does Cass come to realize how much she truly does care about her grandmother.
Clare Layton, known to mystery fans as Natasha Cooper, has written a poignant drama about people and their expectations. The heroine of this tale is an elderly woman who has come out of prison as a kind and strong person who won't back down for anyone when she believes she's right. CLUTCH OF PHANTOMS is a novel that takes you two steps beyond the edge.
Harriet Klausner
In this story with strong undertones of fate, family, foes, forgiveness and fairness, Cass Evesham finds a lot more than a grandmother she believed was dead was actually a murderess. Not a exactly a cozy mystery, the reader always knows "whodunit" - but the arrival of Cass, Livia and Julia in the present makes much of the past. The twists of hate and betrayal are very realistic, as well as Livia's adjustment to society. Ms. Layton etches a clever cast of characters in a very unusual situation. I am hoping she went rather over-the-top with her portrayal of a merciless press, but I sense that she got the vengeful characters just right. A five star read!
