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.

"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)
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.
love Flynns stories and mitch rapp. 3rd book for me and going to read them all. this narrator for this one. not bad, changed the character nicely for the most part, but still loved the first narrator George Guildhall
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!!!
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.
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.
Read like a robot.
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.
To some degree the realism of a terrorist threat. It made the story more riveting.
Great voice actor! Really gave the differences in tone for each character so that all didn't sound the same.
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.
It's a testament to Vince Flynn's writing that it is a strong continuation of Mitch Rapp's storyline.
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
Well of course it has the usual twists and turns. Any book with plots against the POTUS are exciting
Jay Snyder, Scott Brick, Ron McClarty, or several others
Not even close. It was barely tolerable
