24 Trial By Fire from the Author: Dayton Ward. An all-new 24 adventure by New York Times bestselling author Dayton Ward, 24:Trial by Fire. Receiving 73 Emmy Award nominations over eight seasons, 24 revolutionized the format of TV dramas on a global scale. Before London... Before CTU... Before the clock started ticking... 1994: 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 and other enemies of the United States have been unsuccessful. Now, after months of careful planning, two undercover agents have infiltrated Gadjoyan's inner circle. Soon, they will have sufficient evidence to seize the arms dealer and remove a clear and present danger to the United States. On the small Japanese island of Okinawa, Gadjoyan's representatives are concluding a deal with Miroji Jimura. Jimura's hatred of Americans is absolute, and he's only too happy to profit from sales of their own weapons to be used against them. When a rival of Jimura's sabotages the arms deal, one of the CIA's undercover assets is killed, threatening the case against Gadjoyan and revealing a far greater menace to American security. The only thing standing against this new, immediate danger is a single, junior CIA agent named Jack Bauer.

Trial By Fire And Water The Medieval Judicial Ordeal Oxford University Press Academic Monograph Reprints from the Author: Robert Bartlett. Although seemingly bizarre and barbaric in modern times, trial by ordeal-the subjection of the accused to undergo harsh tests such as walking over hot irons or being bound and cast into water-played an integral, and often staggeringly effective, role in justice systems for centuries. In "Trial by Fire and Water," Robert Bartlett examines the workings of trial by ordeal from the time of its first appearance in the barbarian law codes, tracing its use by Christian societies down to its last days as a test for witchcraft in modern Europe and America. Bartlett presents a critique of recent theories about the operation and the decline of the practice, and he attempts to make sense of the ordeal as a working institution and to explain its disappearance. Finally, he considers some of the general historical problems of understanding a society in which religious beliefs were so fundamental. Robert Bartlett is Wardlaw Professor of Medieval History at the University of St. Andrews.
