Before the clock started ticking…
Tateos Gadjoyan, an Armenian arms merchant, has been a target of the Central Intelligence Agency for years. Efforts to thwart his selling of American military weapons to terrorists have been unsuccessful, but finally two undercover agents have infiltrated Gadjoyan’s inner circle. Soon they will have sufficient evidence to seize the arms dealer.
- On the small Japanese island of Okinawa, Gadjoyan’s representatives are concluding a deal with Miroji Jimura, an arms dealer who’s only too happy to profit from the sale of American weapons to be used against American people.
- When a rival of Jimura’s sabotages the arms deal, the case against Tateos Gadjoyan is threatened and another far greater menace to American security is revealed. The only thing standing against this new danger is a single junior CIA agent named Jack Bauer.
Working without backup, Bauer has no choice but to face this urgent new threat head on, but the stakes are high and time is already running out…
