Jack Bauer is an intense, highly-trained operative who works for the Counter Terrorism Unit. When a terrorism crisis presents itself, he's off and running to thwart the nefarious persons who seek to kill U.S. citizens. As he tracks down those involved, he often finds that the trail of diabolical plotting leads him further into the terrorist cells and into the seedy inner circles of the U.S. government. Jack stops at nothing to gain the necessary information from terrorists, eschewing standard agency protocol in favor of using all means necessary to get the intelligence he needs to thwart terrorists. He relies heavily on cutting edge technology, his computer wizard Chloe O'Brien, and his personal connections with U.S. presidents to prevent American citizens from being subjected to harm and danger.
