what i'm reading now
Whenever I need some escape reading I always turn to Nelson DeMille. The Gatehouse is the sequel to the novel Goldcoast, and brings back the characters from the first novel to tie up all the loose ends in their lives. In Goldcoast John Sutter's wife has an affair with a Mafia boss with catastrophic results. They divorce and John spend several years sailing around the world. This book begins 10 years later when John returns to the Gold Coast to attend the funeral of an old friend and is reunited with his ex-wife Susan. He learns that the son of the man his wife had the affair with lives next door to the gate house where he is staying. If you haven't read the book it's based on don't worry; this book will bring you up to date with all the characters. If you like Nelson DeMille and the quick wit of his lead characters you'll like this one.
