They arrive in Kansas City when it is a rugged town built along mountainous gullies carved in the mud along the Missouri River - thus earning it the name "Gully Town." For Kevin, early Kansas City affords the opportunity to fulfill his ambitions to be a newspaper reporter and to pursue his avid interest in women - until the captivating Mary, herself an Irish immigrant, steals his heart. Jack settles into the business community and his life takes a completely different turn as he helps create the Boss System of politics that continues to dominate the city for half a century.

As the next generation comes of age in a more civilized Kansas City it faces its own challenges. Michael, a product of Gully Town's Little Italy, grows up in violence and becomes chief of the Kansas City underworld. Michael falls in love with the beautiful Beth, and must face the inevitability of his career in organized crime destroying the life they have built together.

G.P. Schultz was born in Longacre, West Virginia to a coal mining family. He grew up in wild, wonderful West Virginia, where he loved to play sports. He then served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii where he met his wife, Vicki, who was attending the University of Hawaii. They have two daughters and currently reside in Kansas City.
His writing career began in mid-life, with the publication of his first novel, Gully Town. His idea for the novel came from years of working with the Irish and the Itailans in the River Quay area of Kansas City, and he wanted to revive the city’s rich history in a novel.
He currently divides his time between his one man marketing business and writing, but also enjoys golf and gardening, and follows any sporting event that requires the use of a ball.
He writes fiction, but combines it with years of research to make his novels accurate in time and place. His writing philosophy is, that you can’t have a compelling story, without a compelling romance.
