Publisher's Summary

This tie-in novel to Fox's groundbreaking TV 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 set out to track down and capture Jack, even as a covert operations unit of Russia’s SVR set 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 24 hours. You’ll never see me again. Come after me - and you’ll regret it.

Jack is not to be messed with!

Would you consider the audio edition of 24: Deadline to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print, but the audio version was worth the listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Is this really a question? Jack 'freaking' Bauer. Why? Let me think, Jack Bauer doing what he does best, out thinking, and hurting people in innovative ways. He is the ultimate survivalist and this story showcases that.

What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brought life to the characters and accents where needed. His voice seemed a little odd to me at first, but it quickly grew on me and matched perfect with the book sequences.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When I figured out who the assassin was. I had been missing her as of late. I was then in one glorious sentence, reunited with her. Also, when Jack's partner got the bad deal of the stick. I don't want to give too much away, but I didn't see that coming. I felt your pain Jack.

Any additional comments?

If you love 24. Get this audio book. I am not sure why other listeners didn't care for it, but I write action novels and read them, so I'd like to think I know what's good and what's not. This was a great story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Jack Bauer for President.

Disappointed but still love Jack

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I kept getting lost as the story line seems to jump. Also, feel a stronger male voice should read the audit book.

Would you be willing to try another book from James Swallow? Why or why not?

Yes, anything about Jack Bauer I would give more than one, two or more chances

Did the narration match the pace of the story?


Was 24: Deadline worth the listening time?

Not really, but would do it again

Any additional comments?

I hope the next audio book about 24 will be more deliberate in the story line and will be read by a stronger male voice.

No Let-up in the ride

If you could sum up 24: Deadline in three words, what would they be?

Fast Paced excitement

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack Bauer. He has his target and goes for it, and he cares about what he is doing - he is human

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There are so many which show different aspects of this complex character to pick out just one.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Action All The Way.

Any additional comments?

The book picks up where the eighth TV series ended and answers many of the questions not answered. I wish I had been able to listen to it all in one go. I will definitely listen to it again. Bring us more of these stories - please
