This is one of my favorite books. I have given it to several of my family and friends as gifts throughout the years and they all responded how much they loved it! The characters draw you into the story so soon you feel like you know each personally. A great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
A very liberated husband and wife who are descendants of
Long Island's first settlers, rub shoulders and bodies
with each other and their Mafioso crime boss neighbor. They
are no match for the street wise gangster. Unlike this book,
which is original and funny, the sequel (The Gate House) is not.
I have read all of Nelson Demilles books, he is one of my favorite authors. This book is a different type of story than any others he has written and is one of my favorites. When I first started the book I really didn't think I would like it, however after a few pages I could hardly put it down.
Read all of Nelson DeMille's book (except The Gatehouse). Gold Coast and Plum Island are two of my favorites. He intertwines fact with fiction and moves the story along. Gold Coast takes you into a world of Upper Class WASP's and the dangerous world of the mob.
