Operating out of a nearly empty space in Los Angeles, the newly created CTU faces its first major crisis. A large amount of plastique explosive has vanished and could be anywhere—with criminals, crazies, outlaw bikers . . . or in the bloodstained hands of Islamic radicals. As powerful representatives of the world's major religions gather for a conference on faith, peace, and coexistence, agents of the newborn elite counterterrorism unit must chase elusive shadows through the underbelly of L.A. A nightmare of assassination and terror is looming, tied to the darkest secrets of the church—an explosive threat that must be exposed and defused within twenty-four hours, or violent repercussions will be felt around the world.
And only one man possesses the necessary passion, ruthless skill, and willingness to operate outside his jurisdiction and beyond the limits of the law: a dangerous rogue CIA operative . . . named Jack Bauer.

Satisfying, but far from perfect
Trinity feels very much like the television series, including the strengths and weaknesses. If you enjoy the show, you are likely to be satisfied.
The backstory elements of this novel are good. I enjoyed learning about Jack's recruitment and his early interactions with Nina and Ryan Chapelle.
The frustration is in the cheesy feeling from mixing real historical fictions, the ridiculously thinly veiled "Mark Gelson", and fictional characters. PLEASE choose all real names or all fake names when you introduce them into a novel. It was also maddening to not know what year the action is taking place in, and having references to things that don't seem right. I don't think CSI reruns were a tv in this fictional world. Detail is important!
