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 and 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.

This book has no redeeming values. Almost every part was just too silly to believe or enjoy. No one would be in the face of a mob boss mouthing off as this character did. Jogging in the nude? Come on! Silly book. Poor character development was an on-going issue.

I'm a big fan of Nelson DeMille and I thought The Gold Coast was a terrifc book, so I was downright giddy when I learned that Mr. DeMille had written a sequel. Now I'm just disappointed. Sure, the dialogue is clever and funny and how can you not like John and Susan? But a work of fiction should also have a good story, a plot that moves along and some dramatic tension. This sequel failed miserably in those last three requirements. I suppose if you've read The Gold Coast you'll feel obligated to read this one too, but this is not a book I'd recommend otherwise. The Gold Coast, however, is.
