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)

    Would you consider the audio edition of Transfer of Power to be better than the print version?

    I never read the the printed book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Transfer of Power?

    President's bedroom activities


    What does Nick Sullivan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Who's Nick Sullivan? hahah. He is a good reader.


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

    White House Full of blood


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know why some reviews are complaining about the narrated performance. He is not the best of course, but he did well on this book. Vince Flynn is very talented author he knows how to keep the action going. I'm gonna buy all his books.

    "Love Vince Flynn! Do NOT like Nick Sullivan"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Who picked this awful narrator? Not only do I dislike him as Mitch Rapp, I don't like him at all. Sometimes he slows down so much it sounds like he's narrating a children's book. I really want to listen to the entire series but I don't think I can take Nick Sullivan. It's a shame, such a great series but the narrator ruins it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Sullivan?

    George Guidall of course, or maybe Scott Brick.

    "Outstanding Book"
    What did you love best about Transfer of Power?

    Critical thinking and decision making of Mitch Rapp. In addition he did doing the right thing regardless of the political ramifications of that decision. Making the bad guy smart and evil. Most books the bad guy is an idiot not in this book. Bad guys are just as smart and in many cases smarter than the good guys. That makes the book much more realistic and interesting on many more levels. Also black and white decisions are rarely made without a lot of other tough obstacles. These obstacles are routinely the easy path disguised. Overall an outstanding book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp, because he personifies the best in all of us, while carrying out an extremely difficult job. He gets it done, he follows orders when it makes sense, but always s thinking many moves ahead.


    What about Nick Sullivan’s performance did you like?

    He does all the voices Male and female in and very manner that makes all of the characters believable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read, read it and come to your own conclusions

    "Mitch is still going hard"
    Where does Transfer of Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This books is a must for following all of the Mitch Rapp series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch is still the one.


    Did Nick Sullivan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    When you are accustomed to Scott Brick its harder to follow the characters. Many sound the same.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Move, not so much. This is not a warm and fuzzy series.
