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)

    "Great Story ... HORRIBLE NARRATOR"
    Would you listen to Transfer of Power again? Why?

    Narrator Nick Sullivan single handidly destroys all possible enjoyment of listening to this great book with his nasal monotone voice. Listening to nick is utterly unbearable. All Vince Flynn books narrated by George Guidall are awesome, as George is the best. i had to return the audiobook and listen to the abridged version narrated by Daniel Oreskes, whom i've never heard before.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nick Sullivan’s performances?

    Never again!

    "Nick Sullivan - Never Again"

    I've read the entire Mitch Rapp series and decided to go back and enjoy the Audible versions in chronological order. George Guidall was the absolute perfect performer for every character so I don't know WTF you guys were thinking using Nick Sullivan for this one. I'm going to do my best to finish this Audio book but I cannot stand the Narrator. If Guidall wasn't available why not use Dick Fuld, Scott Brick, Ron Mcclarty, Lou Diamond Phillips???? It's like you are trying to make this unlistenable. DONT EVER DO THAT AGAIN!!!

    "Wonderful Story destroyed by the wrong voice"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no one would enjoy the a narration by a voice that cannot portray the power of Mitch Rapp.
    It is hard to follow anything by George G. But Nick Sullivan is the WRONG choice.

    Story
    "Great book horribly performed!"
    Would you try another book from Vince Flynn and/or Nick Sullivan?

    I will read Vince Flynn's books that are not narrated by Nick Sullivan. Nick reads robotically and awkwardly. It's very distracting from the story. I rushed through the book just to get it over with.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Read like a robot.

    Story
    "Great story! Scary to think if it ever happened."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely recommend to a friend. Again, the storyline is relevant to today's political atmosphere. As a result, it's quite frightening to think of it as a possibility in reality.


    What did you like best about this story?

    To some degree the realism of a terrorist threat. It made the story more riveting.


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

    Great voice actor! Really gave the differences in tone for each character so that all didn't sound the same.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh in some parts and it made me nervous and anxious in others. Was a great roller coaster ride of a book.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a testament to Vince Flynn's writing that it is a strong continuation of Mitch Rapp's storyline.

    "With a better narrator it would have been awesome"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes anyone who is a fan of the Mitch Rapp serie will enjoy this story. Given someone else reading it, I would have been captivated. But this guy made the great assassin sound like a complete dork


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Well of course it has the usual twists and turns. Any book with plots against the POTUS are exciting


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

    Jay Snyder, Scott Brick, Ron McClarty, or several others


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not even close. It was barely tolerable
