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)
I thought the story was great. It took some time to get used to a different voice narrating the story, but it was good.
I love the story! However, the narrator's voice in this book is too effiminate sounding, and just not as gifted in portraying different voices, as the narrator in many of the other Mitch Rapp stories.
Engaging and suspenseful from page 1 to the last. The best Mitch Rapp book to date. I highly recommend this book. narration is mediocre however.
My daily routine is so full of phone calls and appointments. I don't always make enough time to read awesome books like this one but Audible.com helps save me time and lets me escape the daily grind. Thanks Vince Flynn for writing a captivating story and to Audible for helping me 'hear the whole book.'
I stopped listening slightly after we got to the "evil democrat." I tried to get into this book several times and just couldn't. I usually like the thriller style of books, but this one just seemed a little too silly to take seriously.
I did leave three stars because maybe it gets better as you go on. At least it would almost have to.
