The upmarket and salubrious area of Long Island is the stamping ground for a dying breed of America's super-rich. It is also the residence of John Sutter, lawyer - very top-drawer, old money, right clubs - and his sensual wife, Susan. Their lives are about to be turned dramatically upside down by their new 'next-door' neighbour - a certain Mr Frank Bellarosa, top Mafia don and master manipulator. It is he who will impress upon them a rule much older than the archaic etiquette of the old-money set: a favour accepted is a favour owed.

Twenty-five years after it was first published, Nelson DeMille's Gold Coast stands as a modern thriller classic, a stylish, compelling and provocative novel will grip readers from beginning to end.

I am loving this book. I am new to the gold coast area and this book captures this odd culture as it truly exists. Nelson DeMille keeps the book moving at just the right pace....he really knows how to keep the reader engrossed in the story. I will be reading his other books for sure after this one!
