Synopsis

#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.

BookLender review by Laurie on 2015-10-17 23:29:54

I stuck it out to the bitter end, and truthfully the last 3 CDs were vastly more entertaining that the previous 16. I seriously considered sending back the entire long-winded, slow-moving, yawningly pedantic recap of The Gold Coast around about CD 7 or 8, but I didnt have another book to listen to, so I kept listening. Yeah, it was funny in places. But the actual meat of the story could have been told in a quarter of this lengthy discourse on the Long Island moneyed uppercrust. DeMille is a 20th-century Jane Austen, and this book is a classic book of manners, a quaint and sometimes vastly pedantic portrait of a particular societys culture and habits. If only DeMille had known when to stop prosing and get on with the plot.
