Chapter 6 focuses on Nelson DeMille’s novel The Gold Coast in the context of the mob story and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. It traces the evolution of the mafia novel in the context of the history of crime and crime fiction in America. It argues that the novel demands to be read as a modern Satyricon in its distillate of late twentieth-century American mores and manners
