Context: I made this story concept up last night, and I haven’t more than very basic descriptions of the characters and general plot arc. Initially I had wanted to call it “Image Of A Girl”. I really like the abstract feeling of the phrase, and it’s a repeated motif throughout the plot. But I also like “The Silhouette”, and I’ve wanted to call one of my stories that for a while, it just seems like a classic neat, minimalist noir title. So I’m torn. For further context, here are two title cards I’ve created.
Genre: Noir, mystery/thriller
Cadie is in fear of her life. Ever since she moved with her husband Martin to booming post-WWII Miami, an ominous cloud has been hanging over her. Martin is staying out later and later, and out of the blue, she begins receiving letters threatening everything up to and including death from someone she has never met. Each letter ends in much the same way:
Come to your window, come so that you may gaze upon the instrument of your ultimate demise
But all Cadie ever sees is a phantom, a silhouette, the image of a girl. With her life in imminent danger and an unlikely ally in landscaper Tony, can she find the truth before it is too late?
- Image Of A Girl
- The Silhouette
