After nearly 20 years, the sequel to Nelson DeMille’s The Gold Coast is finally here, and boy was it worth the wait! The action picks up 10 years after John Sutter’s aristocratic wife, Susan, kills her mafia don lover. John has found a semblance of peace living alone in London, but all that changes when he’s drawn back to the North Shore of Long Island—the scene of the crime—to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant.
Taking up temporary residence in the gatehouse of Stanhope Hall, he soon finds out that Susan has also returned, and is living only a quarter of a mile away. But she’s not his only problem. Anthony Bellarosa, the son of the Mafioso she killed, shows up as well, and he’s intent on two things: drawing John back into the violent underworld of his crime family…and exacting revenge on Susan.
Now, as the mutual attraction between John and Susan resurfaces, he finds himself caught between old loves and new enemies—and forced to come to terms with the sins of the past. Told from John’s sardonic, and often hilarious, point of view, The Gate House is a worthy follow-up to The Gold Coast—a wonderfully written tale of friendship, seduction and betrayal.
