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)
yes if you like this kind of book.
Good ideas for making subject come alive.
For the most part.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Vince Flynn was the top shelf in his political thrillers. What is eerie about his work is his almost prophetic writing.
10 or 12 years ahead of the game. His character, Mitch Rapp, should be the hero that everyone loves. However, politicians either love or hate him. They want to take him down or make him take the fall. Most just want him to disappear, but he is the first one they call on when a superhuman job needs to be done.
In Transfer of Power, the White House is attacked. The president is safe in an underground bunker and there are almost 100 hostages taken. The CIA sends in Mitch Rapp, because he is the best of the best counter-terrorism operative.
Washington D.C.'s power elite are all fighting for a place to take over when the president "presumably" cannot give orders or dies. Rapp figures out the political maneuvers as he and a couple unlikely 'helpers' do their best to physically rescue the president and hostages - without alerting the on site terrorists.
Vince Flynn was a genius and as a reader I miss his writing so much. I am hopeful that Kyle Mills can manage the task of continuing Flynn & Mitch Rapp's story that Flynn so perfectly showed us.
A lot of the reviews complain about Nick Sullivan and his performance. I didn't find it lacking too much. Of course, when you have been spoiled by George Guilall his low register and growling voice, it is hard to measure. I think that Nick Sullivan did a good to job.
I am really enjoying listening to this series again and have great optimism for the next three that will be added.
Notes: Violence, Strong language
I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that I read the reviews of others before I purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select yes directly below this paragraph? Thank you so much.
Please consider "following me" here on Audible.com. I purchase a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to and have big names. I also have the opportunity to review books in all genres, by lesser known/new authors - many that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and narrators. Thanks!
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.
Say something about yourself!
Absolutely trilling; I couldn't stop listening, finished in only two days. I only hope the next one in the Mitch Rapp series is as good❗️🙏🔫🇺🇸
