The 25th Hour by David Benioff

An absorbing novel of crime, its terrifying consequences, and a bond that redefines the friendship of three restless young men. Wall Street speculators, the Manhattan downtown club scene, Russian gangsters, immigrant neighborhoods - all the elements in the urban turf of this finely crafted contemporary crime novel wed danger with excitement and possibility. Theyre the rewards that Monty Brogan, who stands at the center of the moral glare in this tale, has already lost, just as hes lost his Corvette, and the sway that opened the doors of exclusive night spots and guaranteed him courtside seats at Madison Square Garden. Tomorrow Montys traveling by bus, to the federal prison in Otisville, for seven years. Hes afraid, and all hed ever really wanted when he grew up was to be a fireman. With the pulse of the city in its prose, this debut novel follows Monty through the twenty-four hours of his last day out. At the same time, it illuminates the worlds, and souls, of his two best friends: Frank Slattery, an edgy bond trader who gambles daily with financial ruin, and Jakob Elinsky, an English teacher who clings to illusions as he compromises his ideals. Friends since their high school days, the three of them nostalgically share a past, but warily they confront a future that can no longer accommodate their adolescent dreams. They meet. They drink, and talk, go clubbing, dance, drink, and remember. What neither Slattery nor Jakob know, however, is that Monty has a plan. Its a shocker.
