This tie-in novel to
Fox’s groundbreaking television show 24
answers the question of what happened to CTU agent Jack Bauer after the
thrilling final moments of the last season.
The time is 5:00 PM. One hour ago, federal agent Jack Bauer
was declared a fugitive. If he wants to survive, he must get out of the
country, and he doesn’t have much time. With his former colleagues in the
Counter Terrorist Unit now dead, under arrest, or shut down, Jack has no
resources to call upon, no back-up, and nowhere to go—only his determination
can drive him on. One thing remains clear to him: the promise he made to his
daughter Kim. Jack vows that he will see Kim one last time to tell her he loves
her—before he drops off the radar forever.
Meanwhile, a hastily-assembled FBI task force sets out to
track down and capture Jack, even as a covert operations unit of Russia’s SVR
sets out to do the same—only the remit of the Russians is to kill on sight. As
the clock runs down, Jack must face old friends and past enemies in a desperate
race to stay one step ahead of the hunters, leaving them with a grim warning: Stay out of my way, and I’ll be gone within
twenty-four hours. You’ll never see me again. Come after me, and you’ll regret
it. Download and start listening now!
