The Gate House, Paperback Book
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


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, the 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.

Review by

This is the sequel to Gold Coast. It has been at least 10 years since I read Gold Coast and I only vaguely remembered the characters and some of the plot. Despite the size of it, nearly 700 pages, I rattled through this. DeMille writes with such humour and his familiarity with Long Island and its residents really comes through. If I was going to say one thing it would be that some of the choices the characters make are a little baffling. I don't really understand why a woman would move back to the house she formerly lived in with her ex-husband ten years after the had separated. A house which is also neighbouring that of the son of the man she had murdered ten years ago. Nevertheless it good entertainment.
