Drew Silver is 44, divorced, and living alone at the Versailles, an apartment complex off the interstate and home mainly to divorced men. His ex-wife is about to marry a respected surgeon. His 18-year-old daughter, headed to Princeton in the fall, is pregnant. And now, in Jonathan Tropper's ONE LAST THING BEFORE I GO, a heart ailment forces Silver to begin to take life seriously before it prematurely ends.

When Drew Silver, the former drummer for a one-hit wonder rock band, learns that his heart requires emergency, lifesaving surgery, he makes the radical decision to refuse the operation.
