The Gold Coast
I especially love this one because it's all about an area of Long Island where I have spent much time looking at old mansions. Mr. DeMille mentions streets and shops that we locals know well, and that just makes this book that much more fun. As for the story, imagine The Great Gatsby meeting the Godfather and you'll have a good sense of what you're in for. It's great fun! And when you're done here, move on to the rest of the DeMille novels. Each is a real page-turner.
