Summary:

The latest political thriller from the national bestselling author of Term LimitsWhat if America's most powerful leader was also its prime target?On a busy Washington morning, amid the shuffle of tourists and the brisk rush of government officials, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a hail of gunfire. A group of terrorists has descended on the Executive Mansion, and gained access by means of a violent massacre that has left dozens of innocent bystanders murdered. Through the quick actions of the Secret Service, the president is evacuated to his underground bunker, but not before almost one hundred hostages are taken.While the politicians and the military leaders argue over how to negotiate with the terrorists, one man is sent in to break through the barrage of panicked responses and political agendas surrounding the chaotic crisis. Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counterterrorism operative, makes his way into the White House and soon discovers that the president is not as safe as Washington's power elite had thought. Moving stealthily among the corridors and secret passageways of the White House, Rapp scrambles to save the hostages before the terrorists can extract the president from the safety of his bunker. In a race against time, Rapp makes a chilling discovery that could rock Washington to its core: someone within his own government is maneuvering in hopes that his rescue attempt will fail.With the crackling tension and explosive action that made Term Limits "a roller-coaster, edge-of-your-seat thriller" (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), Vince Flynn delivers Transfer of Power -- a blockbuster novel that carries us just beyond today's headlines.

    love these stories. Good guys and bad guys are clear. no PC, unlike the newly released American Assassin movie that I feel was changed to fit political correctness. The title could be changed to American Terrorist.

  • Aaron Reiss

    Loved the book!

  • Dave Hawks

    Other then a some unnecessary language it is a great book. I really enjoyed it.

  • Katelynn Rourke

    I have been listening to the Mitch Rapp series and this was my favorite book so far! I thought it was great. I was really nervous about the narration based on some of the reviews I read, but I thought he did a great job. Once you got used to hearing a different voice, you forgot about the other narrator.

    Didn't realize this was an abridged version until it was already downloaded. Wish the full version was available as I believe this was one of the best Mitch Rapp books out there. Way too many details and character development left out. Pretty sure the connection made between Rapp and his future wife is a pretty important event.

  • Denis Carroll

    Great story. Plausable events and characters. Glad I listened to the unabridged version. Gonna miss Vince Flynn alot. R.I.P.

  • Anonymous

    Great story, disappointed with the abridged version. I enjoy Vince Flynn's writing and would have liked it better in the unabridge version.

  • Nancy

    It's another good story, but being abridged keeps it from being better. I wish there were no such things as abridged books.

  • Karen, California

    Vince Flynn could not have created a better character than Mitch Rapp. The books in this series is current and I wish we had the nerve to do the things Mitch Rapp does. I think I am in love with Mitch Rapp.

    I have read all the vince flynn books and am now listening to them. Having already read them though, only being able to get the abridged versions is pretty disappointing. You would think a website like this would have the unabridged versions available.
