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.

    "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.

    "Don't waste your time"

    This is hours of boring listening and inane asides. What a waste of time and energy.

    "The Gate House"

    I am a big fan of Nelson DeMille. I loved The Gold Coast. DeMille must have needed the extra money when he wrote The Gate House because it just isn't up to his standard. I thought it was just terrible.

    "Literature is often underrated"

    Well its true. Not mush blows up, no worlds collide, little violence. No wonder many people pan this audio book. The problem with today's audiences is if there are not 25 different plots unfolding in a barrage of glorious violence and action it is considered boring. I however (guess I am from the old school) found the plot excellent, the character development superior, the dialogue witty and clever. John Sutter has lost none of his attitude nor any of his humor. His red headed wife and her nutty parents are delightful and I had no trouble losing myself in the blue blood world of Long Island. I thought that this book was a natural follow up to the Gold Coast and do not think it missed a beat. Ignore the bad reviews and take a chance on real literature.
