A female detective is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a prestigious university for the deaf in London. The investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world… That’s the premise of our soon-to-be-released book Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes).

Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes)

New thriller novel…chilling.


Set in the often underreported world of the Deaf, we hope Silent Fear will give readers a unique insight into what everyday life for deaf people is like. We have worked closely with the Deaf community to ensure authenticity.

This novel was inspired by the murders of two deaf students at Gallaudet University, one of the world’s most prestigious learning institutions for the deaf, in the early 2000’s. The investigating authorities didn’t know if it was an ‘inside job’ and for a time nearly everyone connected to Gallaudet was under suspicion.

We have also penned a screenplay adaptation of the book and are concurrently developing a feature film adaptation of Silent Fear. Here’s a two-minute teaser trailer for the movie:…

One of the producers on board the film adaptation, New Zealand’s premiere Deaf filmmaker Brent Macpherson, is obviously a fantastic asset to the production. We are very appreciative that Brent has seen the cinematic potential in our story and has poured his heart and soul into developing the associated film project.
