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)

Little long but good

This was supposed to be the 3 book in the series. There is no way it can be. Don't understand how the Rapp series books show one wrote in 2010 came put before another wrote in 2006. Every list I check has these ridiculous series of dates! This narrator not as good as a Guidal but still good.

Phenominal...Again!!

This is the 5th book in the series I've read. I read the 2 latest ones and then decided to start from the beginning. What a great decision! Each book has been great and never boring and not once did I think "here we go again". I cant wait to start the next one.

Horrible narrator!

Please bring back George to read this one. This narrators voice is like listening to Charlie Brown's teacher. No depth and monotone, almost robotic. I will be asking for a refund.

Great story, terrible reading

I am really enjoying this series; however, the person reading should know how to pronounce military type weapons and have different inflectionso for different characters.

Good as usual

What didn’t you like about Nick Sullivan’s performance?

Not a big fan of Nick Sullivan

I'm not trying to be critical but I'm not a fan of the way that he performs. He uses the same voice for most of his characters, which makes it difficult to distinguish who is speaking.
