#1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille delivers the long-awaited follow-up to his classic novel The Gold Coast.
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, ten 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, 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, acclaimed author Nelson Demille brings us back to that fabled spot on the North Shore -- a place where past, present, and future collides with often unexpected results.

Just in Time From the Master Himself
I've read every one of Nelson DeMille's books, and each one is a masterpiece. This is no exception. An author who, just when you ask yourself, "When is his next book coming out?" it arrives. I wouldn't miss this one either. The unabridged versions are ALWAYS the best because you get more of this talented author than should be allowed by law, and the audiobook versions allow you to "read" it in the car while driving! Don't miss this, it's his best yet!
Not as good as the first
"The Gate House" is a follow up to "The Gold Coast", which by the way is an AWESOME book. This one by itself may be a bit slow or boring, "The Gold Coast" is one of those stories you just DO NOT want to end. If read right after the first book, this is a great book, on its own... only mediocre
This book is totally amazing! The writing is fantastic and the narrator was the best I've ever heard (next to Scott Brick)! Thank you Mr. Demille!
