#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 collide with often unexpected results.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers buy DeMille for a roller-coaster ride that is both fast paced and fun. With The Gate House, once again, he absolutely delivers.”

    Denver Post

  • Narrator Christian Rummel expertly characterizes Susan, the wealthy ex-wife of tax attorney John Sutter, who saunters back into his life following a torrid affair and her murder of powerful Mafia boss Frank Bellarosa. Rummel is most enjoyable affecting the local 'lockjaw' pronunciations as the story mixes in "criminal" Italian accents just one generation removed from 'deese' and 'dose.' Listening to this witty, entertaining novel, fans of DeMille will be hooked... AudioFile
  • “Fans of bestseller DeMille will welcome this sequel to The Gold Coast.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “DeMille perfectly captures the tone that made The Gold Coast a bestseller—a readable combination of social satire and easygoing humor—and his recreation of the principal characters, John and his ex-wife, Susan, is so precise it’s as though the two novels were written back to back. Revisiting characters and themes after such a long time is always a risk, but this one gets it right.”

    Booklist

  • “Narrator Christian Rummel expertly characterizes Susan, the wealthy ex-wife of tax attorney John Sutter,…Rummel is most enjoyable affecting the local ‘lockjaw’ pronunciations as the story mixes in ‘criminal’ Italian accents just one generation removed from ‘deese’ and ‘dose.’ Listening to this witty, entertaining novel, fans of DeMille will be hooked as they seek to find out if John and his estranged wife, the gloriously beautiful and crazy Susan, will ever find true happiness.”

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Val Arrowsmith-timlin | 2/15/2014

    " This book was pointless and the only thing that got me through it was the humor in which Nelson Demille writes for his characters. It was full of wasteful descriptions and tons of dialogue, that was interesting if it affected any kind of story line but in this case the story line was 400+ pages long. Blah! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Katie | 2/5/2014

    " This book stunk. The story was weak, the main characters wimpy, whiny, simpering and stupid and I am so disappointed. Did Nelson DeMille actually write this?? I think he gave some ghost writer a chance and it got flubbed bigtime. Boo! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Keith | 2/1/2014

    " I liked none of the characters but the wit, though predictable half way through even to a novel DeMille reader, carried me through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ken Ford | 1/31/2014

    " What rich plot and character development by Nelson DeMille. He's truly a first rate author! "
