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)

    "transfer of power"
    Would you listen to Transfer of Power again? Why?

    Yes I found that Nick Sullivan brought the story to life for me.


    What other book might you compare Transfer of Power to and why?

    It is part of the Mitch Rapp series and so can not be compared as this series in my opinion
    is the best ever of its kind


    What about Nick Sullivan’s performance did you like?

    The fact that his reading was clear and breathed life into the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The vice president was something else he moved me to anger


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to the next book

    "Great Story; Terrible Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Transfer of Power the most enjoyable?

    Like the preceeding books in the Mitch Rapp series, there is plenty of action. Not too many surprises, but assembled nicely. If you like SpecOps books & you enjoyed Vince Flynn's earlier books, you'll probably still like this one, albeit you need to slog through the performacne.


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

    Probably NOT. The reading style is stilted - mechanical. It gets better as the book goes on, but the early part of the book nearly ruins it.

    "Great Story!"
    If you could sum up Transfer of Power in three words, what would they be?

    Narrator?? Let that go!


    Any additional comments?

    There have been a lot of complaints about the switching of the narrator. Yes, at first it's a bit disappointing but the book is so compelling that you don't notice the change after a while. I just finished it and it was so good that I can't wait to start the next one! For whatever reason they decided to change the narrator, but seriously, this book held my interest until the very end!

    Happy listening!

    "Behind the Curtain Look at Why Gulf War II ? 😱"

    Well narrated fast-paced story with lots of very believable detail at our nations capital.
    I lack the exposure or experience to judge the veracity of the story or the details--but there were always rumors that President 43's (George W. Bush) move against Iraqi dictator Sadam Hussein was in part motivated by revenge for a foiled plot to assassinate his father-- President 41 (George H. W. Bush) that Sadam Hussein had instigated/backed/financed. 😱

    You know what's coming when Mitch is around but who cares. Exciting And engaging characters and plot, maybe a bit rushed at the end but a satisfying big read (listen).

    Story
    "Kept me listening"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    probably, as it is an entertaining romp.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp, as he is a free spirited, authority hating hero who acts first and gets permission later, if he can be bothered.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    i haven't listened to any of Nick Sullivan's other performances, so can't compare this to anything else, but I found it enjoyable.


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

    it spdidnt make me laugh or cry, but occasionally it made me want to skip a few pages as there was too much detail between starting and finishing a piece of action.


    Any additional comments?

    an intriguing story that could have had a bit more depth of characters and a bit less detail at times. I would have liked to see more of the Attorney General, she was a character you love to hate and would have made a worthy opponent. She was written out too hastily and superficially for my liking.
