Publisher's Summary

A group of terrorists invades the White House, driving the president into an underground bunker, where he can't communicate with his government. Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counter-terrorist operative, sneaks into the executive mansion to take control and finds that the terrorists are the least of the president's and the nation's problems.

Critic Reviews

"His description of the White House is impressive; readers will wonder if the secret passageways, hidden rooms, and clever deception devices that help load this story with seemingly endless intrigue really exist." (Publishers Weekly)

Back on his game

With Transfer of Power, Vince Flynn was back on his game. The story line was clear, the characters believable and the details of the White House make you wonder if Mr Flynn doesn't have an inside source of information. My only recommendation is to put all his books out in an unabridged offering in addition to the abridged version, because the story moved so quickly it left you longing for more.

A good book, flawed by its audio counterpart

I haven't been an audible customer for long but most of what I've purchased I've been happy with. I'm a large fan of Vince Flynn's works, and I was looking forward to listening to the Mitch Rapp series. While this would be a good listen to someone who hasn't read the book before, Audible hurts the book by not labeling it as abridged. Huge portions of character development, plot points and major scenes are completely left out. This would have been an easy 5 stars if Simon & Schuster Audio had done this book in its unabridged glory.

Original First book in Series

I read this book years ago but time has not dulled its impact. I love the characters of Mitch Rapp, the interaction between US agencies and the boldness of the plot, that years ago would have been very farfetched.

For some reason I purchased an abridged audio presentation. This was chopped and cut very abruptly. Go for the unabridged version.

If you like Jack Reacher you will love this too.
