Chord of Evil (Phineas Fox #2) by Sarah RayneEXCERPT: 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 for it might be regimented. Might it be a factory? But as she went on looking, her eyes began to adjust to the darkness - or perhaps the moon simply came out from behind clouds - and she could make out tall gates. She was seeing more details as well now, and sick horror was starting to sweep over her. Because on the eastern side of the buildings, almost exactly as she had seen them in her nightmares, were jutting brick chimneys.
Its a concentration camp, thought Christa. Its one of the places where people are shut away and where the skewer-eyed men and the humpback surgeons pull out their bones. Where the brick chimneys sometimes glow with heat, because people - dozens of people - are being burned. For the first time since leaving Lindschoen, she was grateful that Stefan was not with them.
THE BLURB: A mysterious 1940s’ portrait leads researcher Phineas Fox to uncover a devastating wartime secret in this chilling novel of suspense.
Phineas Fox finds it impossible to refuse when his sport-loving neighbour Toby begs for his help in finding out what’s happened to his cousin Arabella, who seems to have disappeared without trace. The only clue to her whereabouts is an obscure 1940s’ portrait left in her flat, a gift from her godfather, Stefan. The painting depicts the mysterious Christa Klein, Stefan’s sister - and an alleged murderess.
Was Christa Klein really guilty of a monstrous crime? What exactly happened within brooding Wewelsburg Castle back in 1941? And what does it have to do with Arabella’s disappearance? As Phin delves further, he uncovers evidence of a lost piece of music and a devastating wartime secret: an atrocity whose repercussions reach to the present day.
MY THOUGHTS: I enjoyed Chord of Evil by Sarah Rayne, although I wouldnt call it chilling. It is really almost a cosy mystery. Although some of the subject matter, the concentration camps, the Nazis treatment of the Jews, could be horrific, it is merely glossed over in favor of presenting a good mystery.
And it is a good mystery, one that had me turning the pages rapidly to find out who was going to survive and just whether or not Christa was a murderess.
Dont expect any great historical depth, or in fact much depth at all. If you want a quick, enjoyable mystery to read, Chord of Evil fits the bill admirably. If I get the chance to read more in this series, I will definitely be taking it.

His boots thudded along the cobblestone square as he picked up speed, his backpack bouncing on his left shoulder. Crowds of college students flowed between the buildings of the University of Washington campus, forming a slalom course for his flight. Their voices arced outward in shimmering bursts of song, violets and pale blues streaming through the bright clear morning. Class had not yet ended, when the itching at the tips of his fingers had begun to grow, throbbing with the punctuated musical tones that reverberated through him.

Santiago Calatrava Valls born 28 July is a Spanish architect , structural engineer , sculptor and painter , particularly known for his bridges supported by single leaning pylons, and his railway stations, stadiums, and museums, whose sculptural forms often resemble living organisms.
