Overview

HAMPTON DUNES

The adventure takes place in Hampton Dunes, a Long Island resort village, much like East Hampton. The novel describes the realization by Gar Barkley, Owner-Editor of the weekly Hampton Gazette that the Mafia has purchased the Wayward Dunes Inn, through local intermediaries. With the help of prominent politicians, they intend to turn the end of Long Island into another Las Vegas. Gar does not get involved until a lady friend, Phyllis Thatcher, returns to town and together they take on this formidable and evil force.

The story reaches a shattering climax that includes torture, kidnapping and murder. Along the way, the reader sees a good deal of the Hampton scene - Bobby Van's restaurant, the social crowd at the Meadowland (Maidstone) Club, the townspeople of Hampton Dunes -and how they all react to the invasion of the criminals. As the situation develops, local and summer people alike, have to make fundamental moral decisions - that require courage - about their life-styles, their environment, and their community.
