I challenge Jack Bauer (books at fifty meters)

I didn’t know this, but the “24” hero is undergoing some revision – and I’ve been put up against him. Problem is, I’m nowhere near as good a shot as Jack. I tried a few years back in Russia, when they took me out for a Siberian biathlon shoot, but I couldn’t hit the broad side of a troika. So what do I do? Challenge him to a writing contest? I wouldn’t even want to judge that myself. Anyway… it’s all good publicity for the book. (No, I don’t know Tim Shipman or anybody at the UK Telegraph, but they all get great complimentary martinis… or something.)
