Publisher's Summary

On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly 100 hostages are taken.

Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought. Indeed, Rapp has made a chilling discovery that could rock Washington to its core: someone within his own government wants his rescue attempt to fail.

Hear Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top operative, battle global terrorism in more of Vince Flynn's political thrillers.

What the Critics Say

"Endless intrigue... Flynn mixes in a spicy broth of brutal terrorists, heroic commandos, and enough secret-agent hijinks to keep the confrontation bubbling until its flag-raising end." (Publishers Weekly)

"Transfer of Power emerges in its sense of authenticity, depth of research, and almost seamless dramatic scenario....One of Flynn's finest skills as an up-and-coming young master of the genre of political thrillers is his ability to create a cast of compelling characters." (Bookpage)

    Any additional comments?

    "This audio book has been broken into parts to make the download faster...." But nothing could make the middle of this book any faster. From a good fast start it wallows through a sagging middle where the most minute details seem to be worth lines and lines of discussion. This book goes in my list of "2xers"---those books that you have to bump up to 2x speed in the middle to get to the end.

    "Flynn understands American politics today"

    Flynn paints the American landscape today with its screwed up politics and political correctness. Then he shows a few people doing the right thing in spite of political stupidity. Rapp is awesome and I hope the is someone like him doing what needs to be done. I do thank everyone in the military and especially those willing to do the most dangerous jobs like the Seal who took out OBL.

    Story
    "Very Captivating Novel!"

    This was my 3rd Vince Flynn book, after the 1st two, I thought I should start at the beginning because they are soo good. I read many comments about this narrator and I agree he's not as good as Guidall, but he was ok. He didn't add to the story for sure. But the store is sooo good, he didn't take away from it either. Highly recommend this if you're a Flynn fan but just be aware it is a different narrator if you're use to George Guidall. Worth the purchase!!

    "Solid read!"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did. There was lots of action, but it was not overwhelming. While a certain amount of disbelief has to be suspended in action fiction, Flynn provided the appropriate balance between reality and what could happen. There were enough interludes for the reader to learn some about the major characters.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time that I have listened to Nick Sullivan. Frankly, I pick books based on the author or others recommendations, not the narrators. I enjoyed the narration and look forward to hearing Mr. Sullivan again. I will be following the Mitch Rapp series in the future.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    White House Down
