The Gold Coast
Book Number 1 in the John Sutter Series.
The upmarket and salubrious area of Long Island is the stamping ground for a dying breed of America’s super-rich. It is also the residence of John Sutter, lawyer – very top-drawer, old money, right clubs – and his sensual wife, Susan. Their lives are about to be turned dramatically upside down by their new ‘next-door’ neighbour – a certain Mr Frank Bellarosa, top Mafia don and master manipulator.
