    Welcome to the fabled Gold Coast, that stretch on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America. Here two men are destined for an explosive collision: John Sutter, Wall Street lawyer, holding fast to a fading aristocratic legacy; and Frank Bellarosa, the Mafia don who seizes his piece of the staid and unprepared Gold Coast like a latter-day barbarian chief and draws Sutter and his regally beautiful wife, Susan, into his violent world.

    If you could sum up The Gold Coast in three words, what would they be?

    I had listened to Nelson DeMille's other books and finally decided to listen to The Gold Coast. I have listened to over 500 books in the past few years and read many more before that. I have to say that this was my most favorite book ever. It is such an interesting story and DeMille's humor just cannot be matched. Also the narration was superb. I enjoyed The Gate House as well. My sister also listened to them and immediately listened to both of them again. She said they were even better when heard the second time. I cannot recommend them enough.

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book is all about medieval war and all the horrors that go along with it (beheadings, dismemberment, rape and murder) and many of the victims are children. I have listened to over 100 hours in the hopes that something good might happen but it never does - just more of the same. The writer and narrator are good but the story is just too violent and depressing for my taste.

  • An Echo in the Bone: A Novel

    Story
    (5007)

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "A bit misleading"
    Overall

    One thinks one is getting a book about Jamie, Claire and the characters that we know. However it is as much about John & William Grey as anyone else. The book is very much like the others, a bit long and detailed. But just as it gets interesting, it ends. I have enjoyed the books and love Davina Porter but I have to say I felt a little tricked. If you want to find out the ending of this book you have to buy the next.
