CALM, RATIONAL AND HEARTFELT, THINGS CHANGE FOREVER AFTER HIS WIFE IS MURDERED IN A TERRORIST BOMB, AND HIS FRIEND BALE CONVINCES HIM TO REJOIN THE AGENCY. BUT EVERY ACTION THEY TAKE BEGINS TO RIP APART THE MAN THAT HE USED TO BE, AND NOW AFTER HE FINDS HIMSELF TRAPPED IN THE FINAL TEST, MAGUIRE IS TERRORIZED OF WHAT HE HAS TO DO, AND WHAT HE MAY HAVE TO BECOME IF HE IS TO MAKE THE MAN WHO KILLED HIS WIFE PAY.
ETHAN BALE IS THE COLDER AND MORE CONFIDENT OF THE TWO MEN. FUELED BY RAGE AND HAVING IGNORED THE NORMAL GRIEF AND EMOTION THAT FOLLOWED HIS WIFE’S DEATH, BALE THRUSTS HIMSELF DEEPLY AND HARSHLY INTO HIS FORMER OPERATIVE WORK BEFORE DISCOVERING THE GOVERNMENT’S NEW ANTI-TERRORISM REGION. HE IS NOT FEARFUL OF RUSSIAN ROULETTE, AND NOT FEARFUL OF WHAT HE CAN BECOME, BUT IS FEARFUL OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO HIS CHILDREN IF HE DOESN’T DO EVERYTHING THAT IS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THEIR SURVIVAL, EVEN IF HE MUST DIE FOR IT.
DYLAN ROUTH IS A FORMER HIGH RANKING OFFICIAL OF THE CIA WHO HAS BEEN BROUGHT OUT OF RETIREMENT TO RUN THE NEW ANTI-TERRORISM REGION THAT THE GOVERNMENT DESPERATELY NEEDS TO COMBAT TERROR. KNOWN FOR HIS UNORTHODOX METHODS AND COLD, CALCULATING DEMEANOR, ROUTH BELIEVES THAT THE ONLY WAY TO WIPE OUT THE TERRORIST IS TO BELIEVE AS STRONGLY AS THEM AND TO TAKE AS EXTREME METHODS AS THEY DO IN ORDER TO DEFEAT THEM. EVEN IF THAT MEANS ABANDONING THE MORALS THAT YOU WERE TAUGHT TO HAVE ALL YOUR LIFE. NOTHING MEANS MORE THE ELIMINATING THE THREAT AND PROTECTING FAMILY AND COUNTRY.
