Publisher Comments:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille delivers the long-awaited follow-up to his classic novel The Gold Coast.

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.

Review:

"Fans of bestseller DeMille will welcome this sequel to The Gold Coast (1990), in which Susan Sutter, then the wife of tax attorney John Sutter, had a torrid affair with Frank Bellarosa, a powerful Mafia boss and the Sutters' neighbor on Long Island's tony Gold Coast, with fatal results for Bellarosa. After divorcing Susan, John sailed the world for three years, then built himself a new life in London. Now John has returned to the small gatehouse that was once part of his ex-wife's family estate, only to find Bellarosa's thuggish son, Anthony, living next door. In another coincidence, Susan has just reacquired the six-bedroom 'guest cottage' where she and John lived as a married couple on her family's former property. Susan and John soon begin to explore an improbable reconciliation, even as they suspect she may be in Anthony's gun sights. The plot more than takes its time getting to its violent and predictable resolution, but DeMille devotees should have plenty of fun along the way."

Edward Hahn, October 31, 2010 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
It is difficult to assign a genre to a book like this. It is certainly contemporary literature but also has a strong thriller aspect to it. Well, whatever! It's a damn good book.

This sequel to the author's [book:The Gold Coast|33813] takes place ten years later. John Sutter, the protagonist returns from London to Long Island's Gold Coast to attend the funeral and process the will of Ethel Allard, a long-time servant/employee of his ex-in-laws, the Stanhope family. Sutter's ex-wife, Susan Stanhope Sutter, has returned to the Stanhope estate, also. At the conclusion of [book:The Gold Coast|33813], Susan had just murdered her lover, Frank Bellarosa

The plot while not particularly complicated is still very detailed. It involves Frank Bellarosa's son, Anthony, thirsting for revenge, Ethel's daughter, Elizabeth, divorced and attracted to John, the entire Bellarosa family, a Mafia family if there ever was one, Susan and John's two grown children, who hope their mom and dad will re-untite, Susan's parents William and Charlotte, who are two of the most vindictive people I've run across in my reading, John's mother, Harriet, a professional do-gooder, Felix Mancuso, an FBI agent and almost friend of John's, plus other characters who are in and out of the story as it unfolds.

The story is actually almost totally carried by John, who has a very sarcastic and sharp wit, much of which he keeps to himself. DeMille let's us read what John is thinking as well as what he actually says. This device is sometimes confusing, that is figuring out what's internal and what's external.

The story unfolds in a somewhat leisurely manner with a number of sub-plots to keep things interesting. Eventually matters come to a head and in a not totally unexpected conclusion all ends well.

I've read most of DeMille's output and he never disappoints. [book:The Gold Coast|33813] is no exception.
