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
"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)
MITCH RAPP........ENOUGH SAID
Great Read/Listen! Wish it would not end,the energy level is intense, and the action non-stop.
Rapp is Rapp, the crew is all there, what more can one ask for from another incredible Flynn thriller?
The story was very exciting and engaging. I'm not sure why so many people were displeased with the narrator. I thought he did an excellent job and presented the characters in a lively way. I was very happy with the book and the narrator's performance.
The story is what you've come to expect from the Mitch Rapp series. Unfortunately the narration is weak.
Nick Sullivan's character voices are "cartooney" and detract from the story line.
Suspenseful, intriguing, quick
I don't focus on one moment of a book like this there were many.
No, but I like him. He is clear when he reads, maybe some of his intonations are a bit over the top (like the Dallas King character) but as many people like George Guidal I found Nick Sullivan's voice to be very clear, Guidal sounds like he has marbles in his mouth to me and I can listen to him but get frustrated when I have to replay as I can't hear whim as well.
Good and quick listen -
no, but there are very few books i re-listen.and no sooner than a decade between listens.
The Gray Man series or Robin Monarch series
meeting with Milt Adams
Say something about yourself!
No, never listen to a book twice
Audible listed this book as 3rd in the series but has mention to terrorist previous contact and was not in the first two books in the series. Plus, expected this to take over from book two and wanted to know how the CIA traitor and Victor were explained. Good book but did not flow with the first two like I expect a series would.
No, not without another narrator. Story was fantastic, but reader was pathetic.. though not nearly as bad as the reader of book 5 (DO NOT BUY). Book 5 (Separation of Power) literally has the WORST narrator I have ever listened to.. I basically threw away $20 on that book because I was out of credits and couldn't handle listening to that guy past 15 minutes... Cannot understand how they allow someone SO awful and out of character to handle reading such good books...
Yes, great story
Yes... Anyone would have been better except the idiot that reads book 5 in the series... I could at least tolerate Sullivan
Truly a great book and great series. The choice for the narrator was bad though, it almost hurts to listen to him do the voices.
I have found that if you speed the reading up to 1.25 or 1.5 the reader doesnt sound as bad. Dont get me wrong there are much better readers but this has helped me be able to finish the book.
This is a great series. Transfer of power is the next thrilling episode.
Not sure if it was a book, but from the trailers of the movie, I'd say it was like White House Down. Didn't see the movie.
Sullivan has a great voice. He was able to project a perfect image of these very powerful characters. I really liked Guidall in the first two books and it is hard to compare the two. Both were good. Had Sullivan been the first narrator I listened to, maybe he would be my favorite.
It may have already been made - White House Down. I didn't see the movie though.
I now know the first two books are prequels to this series. There were some inconsistencies in the story and the characters. There seemed to be an 8 to 10 year jump from Kill Shot to Transfer of Power. The transition from one book to the other could have been better. One Narrator for the entire series would make the series even better.
