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.

©1999 Vince Flynn (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

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)

    "voice talent hit and miss"

    I love the story but the voice talent made some of his characters incredibly nasal sounding and annoying which begin to drive me nuts. I've never known anyone to talk that way in real life and it made the book less enjoyable and harder to take seriously.

    Story
    "Narration wasn't as bad as expected"

    Previous coo mentors had stated how bad the narrator of the story was. He wasn't so bad. However, I'll admit that his voice is better suited to academic narration than fiction, especially action type stories.

    The narrator has a rather serious, somewhat monotone voice that is rather dry. However, it picked up in places and managed to do a somewhat decent job of changing the voices for each character.

    The story was good, though, as well as the action.

    Story
    "Really??"
    What did you like best about Transfer of Power? What did you like least?

    Hate to say it, but the story is ridiculous. Regardless of training, experience, etc...you never do a front summersault into a room (a dark one you have no knowledge of ahead of time), wearing traditional arab robes, and make a shot from the hip to hit someone's wrist. Not even Jack Ryan, who this is clearly a rip from.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Doctor Sleep after I finish Finder's Keeper's


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

    He is good with the voices and overall with his presentation. Not him I was upset with.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Only after it was released to Netflix.


    Any additional comments?

    Far-fetched action book...if you don't care about stretches of both human ability and realistic scenes, then go for it.

    Story
    "Very bad narrator"
    What did you like best about Transfer of Power? What did you like least?

    Great storyline, but the narrator was terrible. He barely changed the voice he used for the different characters. I felt like a non-professional was reading it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Should have used a different narrator.


    Was Transfer of Power worth the listening time?

    Maybe. By the second chapter, I seriously considered returning the book because of the narrator. I chose to stick it out.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love this series, but I will not listen to "The Third Option" because it is read by the same narrator.

    Story
    "It felt very contrived."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The hero has some pretty contrived weaknesses, and the emphasis on politics and victims drags the reader through the lowest common denominator in people reactions. Why would we want to spend so much time thinking how these losers think?

    The reader was good but the book was not very enjoyable.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It might be a good action movie if it was cut down significantly and we didnt have to listen to the stupidity of politicians trying to stab each other

    Story
    "Another good adventure for Mitch !"

    I really like the stories and that's what got me through the narrator. The other narrator makes you feel like your almost loving the story, this guy sounds like he's reading it. At first it took away from the book and I really think he butchered the feel of the characters but in the end it worked out.

    I'm looking forward to getting back to Vince as the narrator.

    I love Thomas Standsfield the guy is always cool and seven steps ahead. I really look forward to the point where he sticks it to the dumbasses that are always working from some demented angle.

    It's also kinda scary to see the parallels between the people of action and those always working the politics from. From the book you can see these things happen in real life
