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, ten years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, the 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.

    "lacked the usual excitement"

    I am a huge De-Mille fan and have read everything he was written and I have to say if this is your first experience of De-Mille it is not a good example of his work. I found this a little boring and predictable and lacking the usual flair and excitement that is always guaranteed when reading his work.

    I found the characters less believable than in Gold Coast (the prequel) and the story quite laboured full of padding. If I had purchased the book I would not have continued it was only because it was in audio format that I could multi task.

    "Dull read"

    Unfortunately this senquence to Gold Coast just plods along with a predictable storyline. Mr De Mille has written better novels
