In the middle of the night, a woman jolts awake, realizing she hasn't heard from her 21-year-old son in weeks, and knowing beyond doubt something is wrong. His girlfriend doesn't know why he won't answer his cellphone.
What we know is that the young man, Jonas, is isolated in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, shaving his legs, eating a gyro, listening to passing subways and preparing himself for the once unthinkable action he's been instructed to undertake in exactly 31 Hours.
"Equal parts thriller and poetry," says best-selling author Meg Waite Clayton."A book of hope, despair and yearning that stays with you far beyond the final page," agrees author Laura Fitzgerald.
