New York drug dealer Monty Brogan is arrested for drug possession and sentenced to seven years in prison. He spends his last night of freedom partying with his friends, contemplating his uncertain future and the decisions he made that brought him to this point.
Publishers Weekly said The 25th Hour was "brilliantly conceived, this gripping crime drama boasts dead-on dialogue, chiaroscuro portraits of New York's social strata and an inescapable crescendo of tension." Bookseller said that it had "powerful characterization and dialogue". Entertainment Weekly rated it an A-minus, saying that Benioff "shows a knack for critiquing his genre while revitalizing its cliches" and the novel "achieves both pathos and excitement."
