Read in November, 2011

Add the elements of love and friendship, a contentious presidential campaign, a homegrown- terrorist war on West Virginia’s mountain top mining, and then mix in key events like 9/11, the Bosnian War, and Hurricane Katrina--and you’ve got the backdrop for G.P. Schultz’s new novel, The Kennedy Club. "

There are many books that are called "Epic" in nature, yet few that actually live up to that esteemed billing. I am happy to say that the superb novelist G.P. Schultz' THE KENNEDY CLUB is one of those books that does indeed deserve to be called an epic. A magnificent portrait of a time beset with tumult and tragedy and its effect on several people. Mr. Schultz uses his razor sharp narrative skills to make the reader feel as if they are experiencing these events along with the novel's protagonists. This is quite an achievement as the horrors like 9/11 and Katrina must be presented in a sensitive yet realistic fashion, and through the eyes of the characters, the reader grows attached to the myriad of personalities and it is their very reactions that define them as people. We see growth in some, and quite the opposite in others. G.P. Schultz has so brilliantly managed to blend human drama, political intrigue and adventure to produce a book the reader will not soon forget.
