Book Description:
All Monty Brogan ever really wanted when he grew up was to be a fireman. Now he's about to start a seven year stretch in the federal penitentiary for drug dealing. With just twenty four hours of freedom to go, he prowls the city with his girlfriend and his two best friends from high school a high flying bond trader and an idealistic teacher. As the minutes count down, Monty seizes one last chance to stack the odds in his favor.

Hurtling from the money pits of Wall Street to Manhattan's downtown lounge and club scene, from the enclaves of the Russian mob to the old immigrant neighborhoods, The 25th Hour evokes the pulsing rhythms and diamond hard edges of a city in the raw, illusory hours between midnight and dawn. A taut and mesmerizing tale of an urban purgatory suspended between the crime and the punishment, The 25th Hour heralds the arrival of a major player in contemporary noir fiction.

'Captivating . . . A pungent, funny, urban tableau full of shrewd operators and unfulfilled desires.' (The New York Times)

'Tight and crisp . . . . The 25th Hour shines. It couldn't get much better.' (San Francisco Chronicle)

'Remarkable . . . A darkly human novel that ends up more about hope than about cynicism.' (The Denver Post)
