Publisher's Summary

It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

When presidential candidate Josh Alexander's motorcade is ambushed by a group of terrorists, the nation is thrown into turmoil. Two weeks following the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. On the surface, it appears to be the work of al-Qaeda, and soon the FBI and the rest of the government begin scouring the world for jihadists. But then CIA Director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon are presented with classified information so toxic that they consider destroying it altogether, as it contains intelligence pointing to some of the most powerful players in Washington.

Enter Mitch Rapp, the one man reckless enough to follow the evidence to its explosive conclusion. His journey takes him through the shadowy world of contract killers, into the darkest corners of the globe, and eventually back to Washington, where the fragile pillars of power are shaken to the core.

Wrong narrator

Says narrated by George Guidall, but it's not. Was somewhat disappointed about that. Other than that the story was good, although hard to listen to.

Not George Guidall

I'm currently looking at the title of this book. it states that it's by Vince Flynn and narrated by George Guidall. unfortunately it wasn't narrated by George. I specifically looked for that book. make sure you listen to the sample before you purchase. If you're picky on who narrates the book.

Like Narration and story

I really like Armand Schultz's narration and wish he would narrate an unabridged version of Transfer of Power. I didnt use my credit to buy TOP because Nick Sullivan's sample narration (dont have to listen to the whole thing to tell, makes me cringe) just doesnt do it for me.

Total disappointment!

Okay, big fan of Vince and the Mitch Rapp series BUT this title states that George Guidall would be narrating and clearly it was not. No disrespect to this narrator, but he can't hold the storyline, horrible with character change and overall made the book unlistenable. I will be seeking a refund on this terrible disappointment. Shame on you Audible from a devoted and steady customer!
