A determined band of terrorists holds the key to bringing down the government by plunging the country into darkness, fear, and chaos -- a nightmare born not in a distant enemy land . . . but rather in the heart of America itself.After a mission gone bad, Counter Terrorist Unit operative Jack Bauer is relegated to infiltrating a dangerous homegrown militia group -- and stumbles upon information about an activated sleeper cell of Middle Eastern terrorists on American soil. But the roots of the insidious threat may go deeper than he suspects, firmly planted in the lies and treacheries of powerful government agencies. And without the trust and support of his CTU superiors, Jack may have to rely on the very fanatics he's sworn to destroy . . . or face an earth-shattering catastrophe at the end of the day....

    So often, books based on television shows such as 24 fail to capture the tone and texture of the television program. This one succeeds about 80% of the, which puts it a bit above the average TV adaptive work. Whitman successfully captures the tone and tenure of the series, even if the characters are often very much little more than a cliche cutout of a season of the TV show. In fact, Whitman breaks little, if any, new ground here, with a plot that was probably leftover from the TV series itself. There's blackmailing politicians (see a pattern) Jack's usual gruff manner, Terrorist plot twists, tricks, and schemes, bureaucratic blindness, and old relationships--- all such part and parcel of that which we saw in the program-- that this could almost, but not quite, have been a script...Not that it is bad for there are some clever plot twists along the way and some decent action... however, there is a such a nagging feeling of deja vu that keeps the novel from being anything more than a fairly decent rehash and rising to a higher level. A decent, and laudable effort that accomplishes what a TV tie-in book should do.. replicates the experience of viewing a season... however, nothing overly special...

    I am a big fan of the show 24 and the character of Jack Bauer. These books are the next best thing to the show itself. The plots follow the same format with the same kinds of twists and turns, and even a bit more back story and detail than the show. Veto Power held my interest throughout. The new additional characters were refreshing and I found myself picturing them in the 24 universe as well. The author told a good story and kept the intrigue level on high alert. Jack has been reprimanded recently for making a mistake on a mission and he is trying to rectify it by doing what he does best, saving the day. He must figure out the validity of a terrorist attack threat that was given to him by someone he has just arrested. This is a very quick read and I definitely recommend this series for any 24 fan who likes to read. These are just as addicting as the show, and this was one of the better stories I have read in the series.

    Wasn't all that great. The writing was a bit over serious, and yes I know this is '24' we're talking about. The main problem is there was way too many POVs and storylines that the book never did justice to the majority and made the book quite jumbled and unnecessarily complicated when it could've easy been streamlined.

    24 is back and this was a great way to get back into the characters. Can't wait for the show to start back up. Guns don't kill terrorists, Jack Bauer does.

    I was disappointed with the language in this book. Enough that I won't be reading anymore of the "24" books....which is sad, because it was certainly a page turner.

    It actually was pretty good, if i didnt think of it as a tv show. A very easy read, i finished it in a day and a half.

    This was a bit cheesy. Not a bad "fluff read", but the television show is really enough for me.
