The Silence of Us: On the coldest night of the year, Jonah startles awake covered in blood, with no memory of why a dead body is lying yards away from the back door of his home...

Jonah Hillyer and Riley Griffin are the toast of Manhattan, covered by both Page Six and the NY Times society column. The handsome couple share a privileged life that encompasses both the Upper East Side and lower Manhattan, benefit of Jonah's grand trust fund. Jonah's party-boy, globe-trotting past combined with newly-out, ex-jock Riley's turn as a Wall Street rising star make them society fodder. But a check to Riley’s ambitions and a violent attack carried out by someone from Jonah’s past impel them to flee the city fishbowl and make a fresh start in quiet, picturesque Camden, Maine.

The newly married couple enjoy a bucolic life in the small community, making friends and social connections outside their normal circle. But Riley's growing obsession with a beautiful young man feeds Jonah's sense of insecurity, while revelations about a father figure who manages Jonah's family fortune threaten his sobriety. As jealousy takes hold of Jonah, his marriage to Riley disintegrates, and the thin line between gaslighting and doubt blur, until that cold night when Jonah awakes to blood and the body.

The Silence of Us is a sexy, surprising domestic thriller featuring LGBTQ leads.
