The Gatehouse

The Gatehouse is a great thriller from Nelson DeMille. Although the book a sequel he wrote earlier, called the Gold Coast, you can get a hint of history in the background through the narration of what transpired in the past, a decade ago. This is set in 2002, when John Sutter returns home for a funeral, and deals with an Iranian landlord, a possible hit by the mob don's son, his ex-wife and then his in-laws from hell. And it's all centered in the gatehouse, his former home. It gets dicey, when he and his ex decide to remarry and things get harry from there. What a great read and a new delight to add to my TBR list. Enjoy!

  1. This sequel was a bit of a disappointment to me. I preferred The Gold Coast so much more.
