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.

    "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?

    Confusing


    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.

    Story
    "Not a worthy prequel to Live Another Day"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No - the story was more applicable to a late teenager / early twenties reader looking for a time waster novel. This title is nowhere near the work produced by - for example - 24 Screenwriter Vince Flynn, nor does it come close to any of the other major series in this genre. I am a die hard 24 fan, and am sad to say I am disappointed.


    Has 24: Deadline turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No - this title is simply lacking.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not. I thought his vocal performance was quite good, though I must say his voice never grew on me. If you like his voice, you will find a good vocal performance here.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, too predictable, not worthy of the title 24.


    Any additional comments?

    I had very high hopes that this novel would be a knock out, but unfortunately was disappointed. The story seemed to be a 'bolt on' in order to waste time while the 'ultimate goal' of Jack could be accomplished. Sorry for being vague, but I don't wish to spoil the plot for those willing to give it a shot.

    Story
    "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

    Jacks Back and kicks more ass than the entire US marines.


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

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If only I had that kind of time.
