Retired New York City Cop and Emmy Award Winning Brother Bring "Gravedigger: Prodigal Son" to Life in a Haunting New Crime Novel from Kellan Publishing

"Gravedigger: Prodigal Son" is a tale of codes, morals and misguided views of justice. Three men on a collision course, each driven by their own eroding sense of integrity as a serial killer exposes the darkness in each of their souls.

New York, NY, March 12, 2016 --( Kellan Publishing will be releasing Billy and Joseph Pepitone’s latest novel, the crime drama ‘Gravedigger: Prodigal Son’ on March 27th, 2016. ‘Gravedigger: Prodigal Son’ is a chilling tale surrounding the peaceful beach town of Starfall, New Jersey which has been woken from its winter slumber by the discovery of several mutilated bodies crudely buried in public, shallow graves. The only link appears to be Steve Borden, a brilliant criminal defense attorney. Jim Orkin, the local police chief and national hero, leads the manhunt to bring the elusive murderer dubbed ‘The Gravedigger’ to justice. A dangerous organized crime boss, however, wants the Gravedigger dead.

“Gravedigger isn’t just a crime drama or a slasher tale. It’s a look at our justice system through several distorted and perverse points of view and asks the question, just how far will a society go to protect itself?” –Billy Pepitone.

A ‘Gravedigger: Prodigal Son’ online pre-launch party will take place on March 21st, 2016 from 9 am till 9 pm. Prizes include signed copies and free ebooks. Visit the Facebook event page at
