Everyone is doing nukes. I guess it was Corey's turn. It was a bit much.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I wanted to catch up on the Rapp series, so I guess so.

If you’ve listened to books by Vince Flynn before, how does this one compare?

The later books, including the prequels are far superior to this. The reader didn't do Rapp justice. Where was George Guidall for the early books?

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Sullivan?

George Guidall

Could you see Transfer of Power being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, but American Assassin or Last Man for sure. Find some up-and-comer for the role.

Any additional comments?

I really can't stand these "fictional President and White House in peril" themes.

If you could sum up American Assassin in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining, action, riot

What did you like best about this story?

The narration

Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

Stan, the trainer. Grizzled, stubborn and had me laughing out loud. Awesome.

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

Definitely hard to put down.

Any additional comments?

When's the movie? Sign me up.

Would you consider the audio edition of Operation Kronstadt to be better than the print version?

Excellent narration. Better than print.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Operation Kronstadt?

The story of Francis Cromie is is little known. My grandfather was one of the embassy staff that witnessed his murder. This event and the incredible story that follows has shed light on this era for me and exposed it to the world. The best Audible 'read' for me yet.

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

I will search this narrator's other works and read them.

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

I couldn't put this recording down.

Any additional comments?

Great read
