Hello,
I'm a translator from Israel and was just given a segment from Quantico as a test (I'm applying for a job with a publisher). The segment is from chapter one (I think), and the headline says: "Guatemala, near the Mexican Border, Year Minus Two."
I just can't figure out what "year minus two" means. Is is something to do with the context of the entire book? Cause I don't have it and can't get hold of it.
I'd appreciate some help here, really quickly, too, cause the test is due for tomorrow... please?

Thanks,

Tamar.
