Publisher's Summary

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, 10 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, which had been the family home of his ex-wife, Susan Stanhope Sutter, 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, old passions begin to reignite, and John finds himself pulled deeper into a familiar web of seduction and betrayal.

In The Gate House, a book that is both a sequel to The Gold Coast as well as a suspenseful stand-alone novel, acclaimed author Nelson DeMille brings us back to that fabled spot on the North Shore - a place where past, present, and future collide with often unexpected results.

    "Excellent!!"

    This is a great sequel to The Gold Coast. I recommend reading or listening to The Gold Coast first, as it will help in understanding some of the subtle nuiances of this book. But, either way it was a great story. I couldn't stop listening. The narration was excellent, and captured the different accents perfectly. If you're a Nelson DeMille fan, this is a must read/listen.

    "Great Sequal"

    This one has it all...hate, revenge, love, forgiveness. Sometimes sequals just do not live up to the original story but this one will not disappoint. If you have read 'Gold Coast' then invest the time to finish the story you wont regret it. I was not familiar with this narrator but he does a good read and I will be looking for more by him.

    "gratuitous sex and misogyny"

    Although I enjoyed The Gold Coast, I found the first half of The Gate House to be a painful recap of its prequel. The remainder of the book was the written, repeated fantasies of a shallow, immature man. The characters were not developed beyond their sexual identities, leaving little room for the reader to enjoy the book or miss its principals once the predictable ending arrives.

    "Got caught up with the Sutters"

    I'm a Nelson DeMille fan. At about 1/3 the way through I thought - where is this book going? No real plot - only reminiscing about the past. But I got caught up in the story and laughed out loud in many places. I could really relate to John Sutter and his wacky friends and family. Looking forward to the next DeMille creation.

    "The Gate House"

    I reread Gold Coast, which I enjoyed 20 years ago, in preparation for reading Gate House. If you liked Gold Coast, this is a seamless tying up of all loose ends, and is just as entertaining as the first book. Well done, and no loss of voice from the original. I think it would be readable as a stand alone, but the combo is your most satisfying bet.

    "Listen to Gold Coast First"

    This novel can not be enjoyed before listening, or reading the predeccesor novel "Gold Coast".

    DeMille tried very hard to sum up Gold Coast in Gatehouse, by penning flashbacks of the first novel prior to chapters; however this did not give the reader the connect to the characters, it was intended to give. Have a marathon!!!
    Listen to Gold Coast......and coast...right into
    Gatehouse for a really great DeMille experience.

    "Gate House"

    Riveting! While I liked the Gold Coast when I read it years ago, I found that I identified more with how the characters developed in the Gate House. I found this to be a superb sequel. As in many of his books, Nelson Demille's wit and sarcasm add humor and humanity to his characters, and make them likable even when you have so little in common. This is an outstanding read and the narration is right on. When you start, it will be hard to put down.

    "Fantastic combo of writing and narration"

    This is one of the best reads/listens in a very long time ... probably since DeMille's last book. Every line engages and the narration interprets the characters and John so well that it would be hard to not think of the narrator as John himself. The best!

    "Get the abridged version."

    This book is a disappointment. It has too much dialog where the primary character talks to himself. About half of the book could have been left out.

    "Unreadable"

    I couldn't go past the first hour or two. Never grabbed my interest. I've read all his books and enjoyed most. This was a total waste of time and money.
