Welcome to the fabled Gold Coast, that stretch on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America. Here two men are destined for an explosive collision: John Sutter, Wall Street lawyer, holding fast to a fading aristocratic legacy; and Frank Bellarosa, the Mafia don who seizes his piece of the staid and unprepared Gold Coast like a latter-day barbarian chief and draws Sutter and his regally beautiful wife, Susan, into his violent world. Told from Sutter's sardonic and often hilarious point of view, and laced with sexual passion and suspense, The Gold Coast is Nelson DeMille's captivating story of friendship and seduction, love and betrayal.

I thought this book was okay, with some very humorous dialogue and one-liners by the main character.

Great story! Lots of "tongue in cheek" humor. This was the first DeMille novel I read, and it got me hooked to this author. Subsequently, I have read numerous novels by him and they are great. Read this book. You won't be disappointed.
