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
"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)
I don't know how to read, but I know how to listen.
I never read the the printed book.
President's bedroom activities
Who's Nick Sullivan? hahah. He is a good reader.
White House Full of blood
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.
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.
George Guidall of course, or maybe Scott Brick.
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.
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.
He does all the voices Male and female in and very manner that makes all of the characters believable.
There were many moments.
Great read, read it and come to your own conclusions
An exciting story about an invasion of the White House by Terrorists, complete with backround about the White House Structure and historical modifications to it plus twists and turns in the plot - and Mitch Rapp coming to the rescue of the President and eliminating the evil terrorist. Realistic descriptions to an adventurous fanatsy!
Tranfer of power,in the catogary of spy books this is one of the best books I have listened
Mitch rap,you can never give these guys enough credit!
Never,I like the smooth tone of his voice.
Would not change a thing,transfer of power.
Can't wait to check out the rest of the series.
Less characters. Very complex story line which makes it hard to follow.
Don't think there was anything wrong with the narration
The realistic story line.
This was my first, but not my last.
I am always amazed by Mitch's ablility to turn on the charm and turn if off when needed.
Of the Series, in my opinion, this has been the best.
Exiting from beginning to end.
Rapp of course.
This would be good but is not possible for me.
Wrap up could have been a little more complete but this was a good book.
Audible allows me to fill my mind with something so much better than TV.
This books is a must for following all of the Mitch Rapp series.
Mitch is still the one.
When you are accustomed to Scott Brick its harder to follow the characters. Many sound the same.
Move, not so much. This is not a warm and fuzzy series.
ONE OF THE BEST IN THRILLS AND ENTERTAINMENT. CROSSES MANY SOCIAL LINES.
DESCRIPTION OF INTERACTION BETWEEN AREAS OF POWER IN THE GOVERNMENT. RAPP'S UNWILLINGNESS TO BE A TEAM PLAYER
THE POTENTIAL RAPE SCENE. THIS SETS THE ENTIRE BOOK IN MOTION TOWARD A HAPPY ENDING. WITHOUT THE REPORTER NOW OF THIS WOULD HAPPEN.
"Mitch Rapp does it again!"
Continuing the Mitch Rapp story line
Jack Reacher series is similar. Action adventure and general content.
