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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Mitch Rapp always gets his man, or woman. One of the best action, thriller series out there.

terrible naration!. great book,

great story, it the narator was painful to listen to. I would rather listen to a sec d grader learning to read than ever listen to a book narrated by Nick Sullivan again! I'm disappointed that he has more books in this series.

To much detail

I like the book, but I think the story dragged on to long. I think the author could of had a great story without so much detail?

Just awful narration

Sullivan had one job and managed to turn an enjoyable series into a near avoidable listen. And most was so completely avoidable. That's the frustrating part. Just totally inexcusable.

Horrible Waste of Time

it's one thing to have a new narrator, but this was by far the worst book I've ever heard. The Author called this one in. I'm not sure I can listen to future books.
I sure wasted my money and time on this one.

Rap strikes again!

Narration was lacking! When you listen to a book you need a good story teller. It should be George G or nothing

Not a great follow up

Even more predictable than the first book. Some of the procedural details were incorrect and it felt like the story dragged on.

Difficult to not compare this with Olympus Has Fallen

I sincerely wish I would have read this before I saw Olympus Has Fallen. I highly doubt that movie was in any way related to this book, beyond the premise of taking over the White House, but the relative ease with which these terrorists implement their plan is laughable. Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoyed this story for what it was, I just had a lot of trouble taking anything seriously.
