"A master at keeping the reader hanging on to see what happens next." - Associated Press
When John Sutter's aristocratic wife killed her mafia don lover, John left America and set out in his sailboat on a three-year journey around the world, eventually settling in London. Now, ten years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, that stretch of land on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America, to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant. Taking up temporary residence in the gatehouse of Stanhope Hall, John finds himself living only a quarter of a mile from Susan who has also returned to Long Island. But Susan isn't the only person from John's past who has reemerged: Though Frank Bellarosa, infamous Mafia don and Susan's ex-lover, is long dead, his son, Anthony, is alive and well, and intent on two missions: Drawing John back into the violent world of the Bellarosa family, and exacting revenge on his father's murderer--Susan Sutter. At the same time, John and Susan's mutual attraction resurfaces and old passions begin to reignite, and John finds himself pulled deeper into a familiar web of seduction and betrayal.
In THE GATE HOUSE, acclaimed author Nelson Demille brings us back to that fabled spot on the North Shore -- a place where past, present, and future collides with often unexpected results.

A Dramatic, witty must read!
A definite must read! DeMille's novel shines as the sequel to "Gold Coast", one of his best. It's a definite page turner and will not disappoint.
A very simple (predictable) plot. Large sections of the book consists of condensed content from the first book - presumably to bring a reader up to speed who hasn't yet read The Gold Coast - most irritating to somebody who just read it. Mr. D's other books are captivating, intriguing and highly entertaining- but not this one.
A great read-- classic de Mille
Don't try to read this novel with your mouth full; you'll choke with explosive laughter. At his best, de Mille has gifts of a great novelist, in the tradition of Trollope. His ability to evoke character and setting are flawlessly surefooted; I come away with new understanding of a male mind. The narrative voice does not falter, and even when the plot is too drawn out the writing is evocative and compelling. Read The Gold Coast first, but do read this sequel.
