Read in November, 2008

John Sutter is a lawyer living off of his wife's family fortune on the Gold Coast of Long Island. These people and their friends are snobs. John is a pompous ass who is going through a mid life crisis. He needs an adventure, a challenge. And lucky for him, this challenge moves in right next door in the form of the boss of the NY mafia. The two become aquaintances, friends, business partners, lawyer/client, rivals...

The relationship between these two men, as well as their wives is sleazy, but predictable. None of the characters are likeable or relatable. This book could have used a better editor, as it was at least 200 pages too long. The story itself was dull and uneventful. I kept waiting for something to happen, and nothing really did. I've enjoyed reading Nelson DeMille in the past, but this was a big let-down. He portrays Long Island and Long Islanders well, but beyond that, the book was lacking.
