Publisher's Summary

When he kicked off, Florida mob boss Frank DiCilia left his gorgeous widow, Karen, everything, but with strings attached. She loses the millions, the cars, the palatial Gold Coast mansion if she ever gets involved with another man. And there's a crazy cowboy-wannabe thug named Roland who's acting as Frank's eyes beyond the grave, making sure Karen doesn't dally, with serious muscle, if necessary.

But now Cal Maguire's come into the picture. A sexy, street-smart Detroit ex-con, Cal's got a line and a scam for every occasion. And he's got the perfect plan for getting Karen DiCilia her money and her freedom...if it doesn't get them both killed first.

Frank Muller is good, the story is not

The story is weak; but thanks to Frank Muller's great performance it is tolerable overall.

A STORY AS ONLY ELMORE LEONARD COULD TELL IT

What did you love best about Gold Coast?

The characters were typical Elmore Lenorad people - the underbelly of society. they're funny, clever and always ready to con a con.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gold Coast?

The entire story was memorable. Elmore Leonard had "the gift."

Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed so many stories narrated by Frank Muller. He did narrations for John Grisham, Stephen King, Elmore Leonard and many others. All his performances were great. He was the best of the best.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the end. The whole story was great and then - the end. It just hung there.

Plotting was far weaker in this one than so many of the other books he has written. a disappointment
