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)

    "Guilty pleasure"

    Flynn's writing employs many tired and offensive stereotypes for traditional conservative foes(women, minorities, democrats, the media) but if you can endure his ham handed effort at subtle rhetoric, there is actually a good story here and a character you will want to follow through every novel. Just imagine the only way you could enjoy Jason Bourne was to have it narrated by Bill ORielly.

    "Yet another tired Islamic terrorist trope. . ."

    I have enjoyed the Mitch Rapp series until now. A much overused genre, and a ridiculous plot to take over the White House (again!). Please, something more original, Mr. Flynn!

    "Great book, horrible narrator...."

    Not only did he mispronounce several names like Barrett (it's a gun, not a hair clip), and its rifled not riffled with a long "I".
    When portraying different characters, gives them a very nasally sound.

    If you can handle the nails on a chalkboard, it's a great story.

    "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.

    "The fast action continues"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A great reading of the book, nothing left out, and well read.


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

    If you like tom Clancy, this is just like his books, but without all the waffle and stuffing, that make them 30+ hours long


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

    Great character dialogue.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, but if there was writing about it here might spoil the book!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Look forward to the rest of the series.

    "Kept me listening"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    probably, as it is an entertaining romp.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp, as he is a free spirited, authority hating hero who acts first and gets permission later, if he can be bothered.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    i haven't listened to any of Nick Sullivan's other performances, so can't compare this to anything else, but I found it enjoyable.


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

    it spdidnt make me laugh or cry, but occasionally it made me want to skip a few pages as there was too much detail between starting and finishing a piece of action.


    Any additional comments?

    an intriguing story that could have had a bit more depth of characters and a bit less detail at times. I would have liked to see more of the Attorney General, she was a character you love to hate and would have made a worthy opponent. She was written out too hastily and superficially for my liking.
