We are pleased to announce the immediate release of the script DVD MURDERS written by award winning actress, producer, and screenwriter Kathy Krantz Stewart. The script is based on the book, Confidential Bounty, by Michael Altieri.

Her ex-partner was investigating the bizarre murder of a college student when he inadvertently let his guard down and now he remains comatose in a hospital bed. She owes him her life because he saved her from the DVD murderer two years ago. Brenda recruits her ex-boyfriend, Medical Examiner Dr. Darren Crowe, to help her find out who tried to kill him. They had an intimate relationship before her undercover disaster left her physically and mentally broken. He knows she is dragging around some serious baggage that he needs to help her unload. The romantic electricity between Brenda Corrino and Darren Crowe is contagious. She is smart, sexy and funny, a thirty something woman who knows what it takes to solve a crime and is not afraid to use every weapon she possesses.

Brighton Publishing releases “Endangered Species”
from novelist Michael Altieri

“A richly textured, searing work with a steady beat of intrigue”

MESA (AZ)—Brighton Publishing proudly announces the eBook release of “Endangered Species” from novelist Michael Altieri. The eBook is now available from eBook vendors including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other leading book retailers. The print edition is scheduled for a late-summer 2017 release and will be distributed through Ingram, the world’s largest wholesale book distributor, in addition to worldwide availability through the Espresso book machine network.

Synopsis: Connecticut private investigator Brenda Corrino’s sixteen-year-old niece Madison has gone missing in Arizona. Known for bringing the DVD Murderer to justice during her stint as a Fairfield County homicide detective, her unacquainted sister Faith Brenna requests her help from Arizona.

Brenda recently went through a tough time herself, recovering from being raped and almost murdered by the DVD Murderer while working undercover. She broke ties with her boyfriend and wanted nothing to do with him, even though he helped to rescue her. She was labeled as having PTSD. After months of therapy, she has recovered to the point that she was able to resume her relationship with her boyfriend and now business partner, Dr. Darren Crowe.

Brenda arrives in Arizona and quickly befriends the local sheriff, Deputy Sheriff Logan Cartwright, who tells her about a similar case in a nearby town where another girl disappeared five years ago. The girl recently resurfaced unscathed and is unwilling to talk about where she has been for the past five years.

Faith and her husband have a few secrets of their own that Brenda must scrutinize to rule out possible suspects, including the two of them. She promises to not reveal Faith’s secret, as long as it does not get in the way of finding the people responsible for Madison’s disappearance. Brenda summons Darren to join her in Arizona to help find her niece.

Arizona is one of the states that has a large presence and reputation of human trafficking. Brenda becomes concerned that Madison may have become a victim. She realizes she is getting close to the truth when a Hummer purposely runs her car off an Arizona highway, causing her rental car to flip several times. She and Darren get banged-up, but survive. Brenda is now more determined than ever to find Madison and put an end to her sister’s fears.

Brenda and Darren attend a party with her sister to observe and investigate her friends under the pretense of participating in partner swapping activities. As the party winds down, Brenda’s unique investigative style has provided her with enough insight into who might be involved in Madison’s vanishing act. She informs Sheriff Cartwright of her gut feelings and together they devise a plan to uncover the truth.

The talented pen of Michael Altieri has created “A richly textured, searing work with a steady beat of intrigue” said Brighton Publishing.
