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)

    "Great story!"

    The narrator did a fine job except for his pronunciation of the NBC reporter , Anna Reilly. He called her "really" instead of "Riley" Very poor Mr Sullivan . Bill Twomey

    "great book"

    Really enjoying this series. Looking forward to the book in the series. Reading them chronological, instead of order they were written.
    all in all, a great series thus far.

    "Powerful!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Transfer of Power to be better than the print version?

    As I can't read print because of blindness, I can't compare the two.


    What other book might you compare Transfer of Power to and why?

    There is no other book that I have listened to the even comes close to this one, because There has never, in my opinion, been a plot like this.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene that stood out was the final rescue of all the hostages, and the extraction of the president.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was full of many twists and turns. I could not stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    If you wanted to cheer out loud for the killing of terrorists given the current problems in the world at present, I would strongly recommend this book.

    "great book. Don't stop the series"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved the first two books and almost stopped because of the reviews. I like continuity of readers in a series as much as anyone but I have other books read by Nick Sullivan and I like him. Listen to the book. It is amazing.

    Story
    "One of the best thrillers I've read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Transfer of Power to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version as I am an avid audiobook listener. I was hesitant to listen to this book as George Guidall was not the narrator. In addition, several of the review of the narration were poor. But while I love Guidall, this book was better suited for Sullivan. He does an excellent job of having a unique voice for every character - something that Guidall does not excel at once the character list gets too high.

    The plot was phenomenal and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Great characters, great story, great narrator. Not much else one can ask for.
