Mysterious Ruby Love, also known as the Countess Rivers, has been convicted of a murder she cannot remember. As she writes in her cell, she is carried away on a journey into memory in a fugue of voices, and hallucinations of music. Ancient Greek philosophy and numerology that Bach believed in weave the background to this fugue mystery.

Review:

Forget Houellebecq, I like Skilbeck. This is of course in relation to the French author. I had read all his books, and the new one Submission came to us about the same time as Ruth Skilbeck's Australian Fugue: Missing. I was compelled to read Missing. It is female-centric for one. I did love many of Houellebecq's books but when I started reading Skilbeck's Missing and then his new one, I could not read his - Karen Kennedy, author of Deeply Felt: Reflections on Religion and Violence within the Anarchist Turn

Really enjoyed it. I liked the way the characters develop, and the pace of the writing. I find the psychology exciting and in many instances I revisit something that I experienced myself. The dear kinky boffin! The snorting gallery owner! The end chapter with[Skilbeck's] observation on Velázquez is fabulous
- Natasha Williams

It's brilliant

It's wonderful. Very inspiring
