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)

    Story
    "Horrible Narration."

    The story was good. But I barley got thru it because of the narrator. I thought it was a joke at first. I mean it really ruined the book and series for me. I loved the first two and thought I might go through the whole series in order but now I don't think I will even with the original narrator because I'll be thinking of this guy. Cartoon voice yes. Spy novel NO.

    "Captivating story but narrator detracted"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Transfer of Power to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Interaction between Rapp and Anna Reely.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator read somewhat mechanically - he did well with some characters, such as Dallas King and Sherman Baxter, but the otherwise intense story line seemed detached. Sometimes matching a narrator to a series is like magic or a good marriage - there is good chemistry. For me, once you have heard George Guidall narrate Rapp novels, no one else will do. Similarly, there is no one to narrate a Jack Reacher novel other than Dick Hill.

    "Trite"

    Formulaic story delivered by a wooden performer. I am sorry I hung in so long, I feel stupider for the experience.

    "Good Story"

    Loved the story. Unfortunately, I had listened to the first two Mitch Rapp books and preferred the reader of those two books better. It did not take away from an enjoyable story, it just would've been better with the other reader.

    Story
    "THE START OF A LEGEND"
    Would you listen to Transfer of Power again? Why?

    I have read it more than once and would continue to read and listen-what a great follow up to a great start. Flynn has continuously been a best selling author for strong obvious reasons.


    What does Nick Sullivan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't understand people antipathy for this narrator and their like of George guidal in all the others. his voice is better suited-it is stronger and not so particular as georges.

    "Best yet"

    I started with American Assassin and then Kill Shot. I strongly recommend that everyone else do the same. Transfer of Power was the best yet by far. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
