    EXCERPT: On the first night she knelt on the window-seat of her room, staring across the darkening landscape towards a huddle of buildings. At first she was not sure what they were. They were too large to be farm buildings, and too neatly laid out to be a village. She thought the word ...

    Chord of Evil is a mystery set in two eras. The story moves between the past, the early war years (the late 1930s) in Germany, and present-day England with a missing person in the present and questions about links to people from that unknown past. As in the first book in the series, De...

    ARC from Netgalley courtesy of the publisher This is the second adventure for music historian and researcher Phineas Fox. You don't need to read the first one to be able to enjoy this one as it is a self-contained mystery, but the first one would give more insight into the character...

    I am such a huge Sarah Rayne fan. I think she could write a book about paint drying and I'd still enjoy it. Thankfully she hasn't. Instead it's a second outing for Phineas Fox, music historian and lover and a man who seems to have a way with the ladies. Well I like him anyway!!! In thi...

    I requested this book because Sarah Rayne is one of the few horror writers that I enjoy (because I'm too much of a scaredy-cat to explore the horror genre). While I haven't read her works in a while - something that I should remedy soon - Chords of Evil has the same suspense and cresce...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Severn House Publishing for a digital galley of this novel. I have read other books by Sarah Rayne and liked them very much. I began this series with the first Phineas Fox novel and rated it a three star experience. I had hoped this second book would suit ...

    Well done dual time line mystery. I'd not read Rayne before and was impressed with her ability to manage a lot of characters and events in a fairly short read. You'll learn a bit about WWII and musicians - Giselle is forced to create a piece of music for the Nazis. This echoes down thr...

    ?Chord of Evil? by Sarah Rayne Published by Severn House, 31 August 2017. ISBN: 978-0727887412 (HB) We first met Phineas Fox, a professional music researcher, in 'Death Notes'. At that time, he had just moved into a new apartment that had rather stretched him financially, and b...

    5 plus stars I read the kindle edition. Toby Tallis, Phineas ?Phin? Fox?s neighbor is having a party. When Toby?s cousin Arabella doesn?t show up, Toby is concerned. Toby and Phin go to Arabella?s apartment and discover that she is missing and the only thing left behi...

    This is a creepy mystery that flashes back to Nazi prison camps and a piece of music that may have been written for Hitler. Phineas Fox is on the outskirts of the story, a charming sleigh who provides modern day assistance in tracing the music. There is a disappearance of an eccentric ...

    This is the 2nd book in the Phinias Fox series and I enjoyed it immensely, even more so than the 1st one. Phin and his neighbor Toby go on a road trip to Germany after Toby's cousin Arabella doesn't show up for his party, a very uncharacteristic action for her. Not answering her cell ...

    I am a huge Sarah Rayne fan having read all of her psychological thrillers, sometimes twice or more times. So a new Rayne is a big thrill for me in my fictional world of adventure and excitement. I must confess to being a little disappointed with her debut Phineas Fox thriller, 'Death ...

    I received a free copy of this via Netgalley in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed this book. Caught my interest from the start and kept it the whole way through. There were several mysteries intertwined throughout it but it never became confusing or too complicated to easily f...

    While reading this book, I felt the need to google the various settings to see if my minds eye view of the book matched up and sure enough, Ms. Rayne's descriptions had transported me to England and World War II Germany. I am a sucker for books about the Holocaust and this book was no ...

    For the first chapter or so of this novel I wasn't sure I was going to get into it, but I kept reading and now I'm happy that I did. This turned out to be a fantastic book with a lot to offer the reader, particularly if you are interested in the time period around WWII. There is a ...

    At last! Amazon wouldn't let me post a 5 star review because apparently, I'd not spent 40 minimum on books. This is out of order - am buying books all the time, and this is one of the best. Intriguing and compulsive from the start, with fascinating characters - all with their own age...

    This is a book about a difficult subject. I found myself dreading it at times because it's painful to read about concentration camps and Nazi Germany. I think that shows how effective the writing is. I was absorbed and completely emotionally connected. This is a terrific mystery in a r...

    Chrissake, this book is terrible. There are so many spelling mistakes,and the author apparently believes the Koran is the Jewish bible. Also, the author refers to a penis as "insistent male hardness," which is ridiculous but would perhaps be a great rock band name. I'll add this author...

    Chord of Evil is a mystery set in two eras. The story moves between the past, the early war years (the late 1930s) in Germany, and present-day England with a missing person in the present and questions about links to people from that unknown past. As in the first book in the series, De...

    I am such a huge Sarah Rayne fan. I think she could write a book about paint drying and I'd still enjoy it. Thankfully she hasn't. Instead it's a second outing for Phineas Fox, music historian and lover and a man who seems to have a way with the ladies. Well I like him anyway!!! In thi...

    I requested this book because Sarah Rayne is one of the few horror writers that I enjoy (because I'm too much of a scaredy-cat to explore the horror genre). While I haven't read her works in a while - something that I should remedy soon - Chords of Evil has the same suspense and cresce...

    Well done dual time line mystery. I'd not read Rayne before and was impressed with her ability to manage a lot of characters and events in a fairly short read. You'll learn a bit about WWII and musicians - Giselle is forced to create a piece of music for the Nazis. This echoes down thr...

    ?Chord of Evil? by Sarah Rayne Published by Severn House, 31 August 2017. ISBN: 978-0727887412 (HB) We first met Phineas Fox, a professional music researcher, in 'Death Notes'. At that time, he had just moved into a new apartment that had rather stretched him financially, and b...

    5 plus stars I read the kindle edition. Toby Tallis, Phineas ?Phin? Fox?s neighbor is having a party. When Toby?s cousin Arabella doesn?t show up, Toby is concerned. Toby and Phin go to Arabella?s apartment and discover that she is missing and the only thing left behi...

    This is a creepy mystery that flashes back to Nazi prison camps and a piece of music that may have been written for Hitler. Phineas Fox is on the outskirts of the story, a charming sleigh who provides modern day assistance in tracing the music. There is a disappearance of an eccentric ...

    This is the 2nd book in the Phinias Fox series and I enjoyed it immensely, even more so than the 1st one. Phin and his neighbor Toby go on a road trip to Germany after Toby's cousin Arabella doesn't show up for his party, a very uncharacteristic action for her. Not answering her cell ...

    I am a huge Sarah Rayne fan having read all of her psychological thrillers, sometimes twice or more times. So a new Rayne is a big thrill for me in my fictional world of adventure and excitement. I must confess to being a little disappointed with her debut Phineas Fox thriller, 'Death ...

    While reading this book, I felt the need to google the various settings to see if my minds eye view of the book matched up and sure enough, Ms. Rayne's descriptions had transported me to England and World War II Germany. I am a sucker for books about the Holocaust and this book was no ...

    For the first chapter or so of this novel I wasn't sure I was going to get into it, but I kept reading and now I'm happy that I did. This turned out to be a fantastic book with a lot to offer the reader, particularly if you are interested in the time period around WWII. There is a ...

    At last! Amazon wouldn't let me post a 5 star review because apparently, I'd not spent 40 minimum on books. This is out of order - am buying books all the time, and this is one of the best. Intriguing and compulsive from the start, with fascinating characters - all with their own age...

    Chrissake, this book is terrible. There are so many spelling mistakes,and the author apparently believes the Koran is the Jewish bible. Also, the author refers to a penis as "insistent male hardness," which is ridiculous but would perhaps be a great rock band name. I'll add this author...

    EXCERPT: On the first night she knelt on the window-seat of her room, staring across the darkening landscape towards a huddle of buildings. At first she was not sure what they were. They were too large to be farm buildings, and too neatly laid out to be a village. She thought the word ...

    Chord of Evil is a mystery set in two eras. The story moves between the past, the early war years (the late 1930s) in Germany, and present-day England with a missing person in the present and questions about links to people from that unknown past. As in the first book in the series, De...

    I am such a huge Sarah Rayne fan. I think she could write a book about paint drying and I'd still enjoy it. Thankfully she hasn't. Instead it's a second outing for Phineas Fox, music historian and lover and a man who seems to have a way with the ladies. Well I like him anyway!!! In thi...

    I requested this book because Sarah Rayne is one of the few horror writers that I enjoy (because I'm too much of a scaredy-cat to explore the horror genre). While I haven't read her works in a while - something that I should remedy soon - Chords of Evil has the same suspense and cresce...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Severn House Publishing for a digital galley of this novel. I have read other books by Sarah Rayne and liked them very much. I began this series with the first Phineas Fox novel and rated it a three star experience. I had hoped this second book would suit ...

    Well done dual time line mystery. I'd not read Rayne before and was impressed with her ability to manage a lot of characters and events in a fairly short read. You'll learn a bit about WWII and musicians - Giselle is forced to create a piece of music for the Nazis. This echoes down thr...

    ?Chord of Evil? by Sarah Rayne Published by Severn House, 31 August 2017. ISBN: 978-0727887412 (HB) We first met Phineas Fox, a professional music researcher, in 'Death Notes'. At that time, he had just moved into a new apartment that had rather stretched him financially, and b...

    5 plus stars I read the kindle edition. Toby Tallis, Phineas ?Phin? Fox?s neighbor is having a party. When Toby?s cousin Arabella doesn?t show up, Toby is concerned. Toby and Phin go to Arabella?s apartment and discover that she is missing and the only thing left behi...

    This is a creepy mystery that flashes back to Nazi prison camps and a piece of music that may have been written for Hitler. Phineas Fox is on the outskirts of the story, a charming sleigh who provides modern day assistance in tracing the music. There is a disappearance of an eccentric ...

    This is the 2nd book in the Phinias Fox series and I enjoyed it immensely, even more so than the 1st one. Phin and his neighbor Toby go on a road trip to Germany after Toby's cousin Arabella doesn't show up for his party, a very uncharacteristic action for her. Not answering her cell ...

    I am a huge Sarah Rayne fan having read all of her psychological thrillers, sometimes twice or more times. So a new Rayne is a big thrill for me in my fictional world of adventure and excitement. I must confess to being a little disappointed with her debut Phineas Fox thriller, 'Death ...

    I received a free copy of this via Netgalley in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed this book. Caught my interest from the start and kept it the whole way through. There were several mysteries intertwined throughout it but it never became confusing or too complicated to easily f...

    While reading this book, I felt the need to google the various settings to see if my minds eye view of the book matched up and sure enough, Ms. Rayne's descriptions had transported me to England and World War II Germany. I am a sucker for books about the Holocaust and this book was no ...

    For the first chapter or so of this novel I wasn't sure I was going to get into it, but I kept reading and now I'm happy that I did. This turned out to be a fantastic book with a lot to offer the reader, particularly if you are interested in the time period around WWII. There is a ...

    At last! Amazon wouldn't let me post a 5 star review because apparently, I'd not spent 40 minimum on books. This is out of order - am buying books all the time, and this is one of the best. Intriguing and compulsive from the start, with fascinating characters - all with their own age...

    This is a book about a difficult subject. I found myself dreading it at times because it's painful to read about concentration camps and Nazi Germany. I think that shows how effective the writing is. I was absorbed and completely emotionally connected. This is a terrific mystery in a r...

    Chrissake, this book is terrible. There are so many spelling mistakes,and the author apparently believes the Koran is the Jewish bible. Also, the author refers to a penis as "insistent male hardness," which is ridiculous but would perhaps be a great rock band name. I'll add this author...

    Chord of Evil is a mystery set in two eras. The story moves between the past, the early war years (the late 1930s) in Germany, and present-day England with a missing person in the present and questions about links to people from that unknown past. As in the first book in the series, De...

    ARC from Netgalley courtesy of the publisher This is the second adventure for music historian and researcher Phineas Fox. You don't need to read the first one to be able to enjoy this one as it is a self-contained mystery, but the first one would give more insight into the character...

    I am such a huge Sarah Rayne fan. I think she could write a book about paint drying and I'd still enjoy it. Thankfully she hasn't. Instead it's a second outing for Phineas Fox, music historian and lover and a man who seems to have a way with the ladies. Well I like him anyway!!! In thi...

    I requested this book because Sarah Rayne is one of the few horror writers that I enjoy (because I'm too much of a scaredy-cat to explore the horror genre). While I haven't read her works in a while - something that I should remedy soon - Chords of Evil has the same suspense and cresce...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Severn House Publishing for a digital galley of this novel. I have read other books by Sarah Rayne and liked them very much. I began this series with the first Phineas Fox novel and rated it a three star experience. I had hoped this second book would suit ...

    Well done dual time line mystery. I'd not read Rayne before and was impressed with her ability to manage a lot of characters and events in a fairly short read. You'll learn a bit about WWII and musicians - Giselle is forced to create a piece of music for the Nazis. This echoes down thr...

    ?Chord of Evil? by Sarah Rayne Published by Severn House, 31 August 2017. ISBN: 978-0727887412 (HB) We first met Phineas Fox, a professional music researcher, in 'Death Notes'. At that time, he had just moved into a new apartment that had rather stretched him financially, and b...

    5 plus stars I read the kindle edition. Toby Tallis, Phineas ?Phin? Fox?s neighbor is having a party. When Toby?s cousin Arabella doesn?t show up, Toby is concerned. Toby and Phin go to Arabella?s apartment and discover that she is missing and the only thing left behi...

    This is a creepy mystery that flashes back to Nazi prison camps and a piece of music that may have been written for Hitler. Phineas Fox is on the outskirts of the story, a charming sleigh who provides modern day assistance in tracing the music. There is a disappearance of an eccentric ...

    This is the 2nd book in the Phinias Fox series and I enjoyed it immensely, even more so than the 1st one. Phin and his neighbor Toby go on a road trip to Germany after Toby's cousin Arabella doesn't show up for his party, a very uncharacteristic action for her. Not answering her cell ...

    I am a huge Sarah Rayne fan having read all of her psychological thrillers, sometimes twice or more times. So a new Rayne is a big thrill for me in my fictional world of adventure and excitement. I must confess to being a little disappointed with her debut Phineas Fox thriller, 'Death ...

    I received a free copy of this via Netgalley in exchange for a review. I really enjoyed this book. Caught my interest from the start and kept it the whole way through. There were several mysteries intertwined throughout it but it never became confusing or too complicated to easily f...

    While reading this book, I felt the need to google the various settings to see if my minds eye view of the book matched up and sure enough, Ms. Rayne's descriptions had transported me to England and World War II Germany. I am a sucker for books about the Holocaust and this book was no ...

    For the first chapter or so of this novel I wasn't sure I was going to get into it, but I kept reading and now I'm happy that I did. This turned out to be a fantastic book with a lot to offer the reader, particularly if you are interested in the time period around WWII. There is a ...

    At last! Amazon wouldn't let me post a 5 star review because apparently, I'd not spent 40 minimum on books. This is out of order - am buying books all the time, and this is one of the best. Intriguing and compulsive from the start, with fascinating characters - all with their own age...
