When you set out to read this book you are making a commitment: Gate House is over six hundred pages long. The plot is slow: sot of literary molasses. Every twenty or fifty pages or so I found myself asking "Why am I still reading this book?" Maybe you'll find the answer for yourself. On the whole I found this DeMille disappointingly devoid of any kind of action until you get to the last few pages where there is a complete turn-around.
My problem derives from the fact that I'd been reading DeMilles's John Corey novels. They're full of action: people being blown up, that sort of thing.
In Gate House, DeMille still gives you droll, self deprecation, sarcasm: all those things for which we've come to love DeM.

DeMille's follow up to The Gold Coast is good, just not memorable. The writing flows well and the characters are interesting but the subject matter just doesn't didn't have that much appeal for me

I usually enjoy a DeMille novel but this one was not his best. The writing is good, but the author keeps repeating himself ad nauseum. The plot is slow and becomes even boring.

This is the sequel to his story The Gold Coast and although it is not as good as the first book, it is also enjoyable. Mr. DeMille writes this story in the narrative and includes much "tongue in cheek" humor. I recommend this book, but I advise you read The Gold Coast first.

I thought this would never end. I like this author but not his best work

I love Nelson DeMille and have read many of his books but this one seemed to go on and on and nothing exciting was happening. I could have skipped to the last 20 pages to finish the 800 page monster off. This book is a reason to have an eReader.

Another witty read from De Mille. Lots of good mafia jokes.

1 star.

Overwrought, under edited and a blemish on the Gold Coast.
