What do you do when you have competing loves of music and writing? Combine them, of course.
Arts graduate Juliet Hoey has done just that, marrying a flair for writing with a passion for music in her suspense novel, The Sixth Partita.
"Miranda's Tempest" was launched by local councillor Gary Parsons on Bribie Island at the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra Concert on 15 July, 2012, where Juliet Hoey performed Bach's Keyboard Concerto in D Minor with Brisbane Symphony Orchestra.
Miranda’s Tempest is the second crime novel with a music setting from author Juliet Hoey. Following on her critically acclaimed debut novel The Sixth Partita, this recent work of crime/mystery is structured along the lines of Shakespeare’s play, The Tempest. The story is set in Queensland, Australia. Miranda, a Brisbane pianist, is depressed after finding out that her husband has had an affair. When she ignores warnings from her friend’s mother, Veronica, about an unsavoury character who is pursuing her, she is attacked and manages to escape with difficulty.
Meanwhile Veronica has found some old newspaper clippings about a crime committed many years ago in Europe, and quite by chance, learns soon afterwards about a mystery associated with Bribie Island, Queensland. While seemingly unconnected, the threads of these disparate events finally weave themselves into a hideous pattern as Miranda unwittingly chances upon a vital piece of evidence which puts her in extreme danger. In a chilling climax, she fights for her life.
