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)

    Grandpapa, Enginer, Eagle Scout. Favorite book = Last of the Breed. Greatly enjoy Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.

    "Wrecking Crew"

    The book may be dated but what a great story and adventure, the story has Heroes, unlikely heroes, villains , slimy politicos. He story flows very well...I really like well written secret service, CIA, military books...and this book fills the bill.
    If you like that kind of book Mitch Rapp will not disappoint you

    Story
    "The Narration disrupts all the character image"
    Would you try another book from Vince Flynn and/or Nick Sullivan?

    No. The writing is still great, but the portrayal of the characters we have gotten to know with the narration of George Guidal are completely changed with Nick Sullivan. Irene Kennedy now sounds prissy, Director Stansfield sounds like a withered up old man with no confidence.


    What didn’t you like about Nick Sullivan’s performance?

    His interpretation of the characters is completely different from who we have gotten to know in previous books


    Was Transfer of Power worth the listening time?

    Sort of. I find the narration has ruined what could be a good book.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be skipping the next book in the series since it is narrated by the same person. I will be sure not to buy any more books narrated by Nick Sullivan.

    Story
    "It Is Like Watching 24 With Your Ears"
    Where does Transfer of Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely 1st in the fictional category.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp, of course. The guy is what every guy wishes he was.


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

    I have not. My only complaint (which wasn't really a complaint at all) was the narrator's robotic voice in the beginning. Once the characters got introduced, his narration was great.


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

    Yup.. it was hard to stop listening after a commute.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first Vince Flynn book I ever read years ago in paperback. I was hooked and have them all in my library now. I really enjoyed the audio version, too. Anybody that likes Tom Clancy will LOVE Vince Flynn.

    "A good Vince Flynn story"

    Suspenseful, interesting - Mitch Rapp not surprisingly is wonderful. Narrator is mediocre at best and I waited a long time to relented purchase this one since the last VF MR book I listened too because I wanted George Guidal to narrate it, but finally something (probably a sale) pushed me to buy it and I'm glad I did. While the narrator as others have said leaves much to be desired, Vince Flynn is so good that the story was strong and my interest remained through. Did not like the Vice President or his aid - felt like they were caricatures. and Nick Sullivan perhaps made them worse. But I think they were written that way. This was an early book by VF

    "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
