Wow! This is the first book in Flynn's Mitch Rapp series. It is also the first of the series that I have read although I did read his first novel "Term Limits" which I thought was a superb action/thriller. In "Transfer of Power," a group of terrorists captures the White House along with about 100 hostages. The president has made it to his secure bunker in the White House with several Secret Service agents, but how secure is it? Mitch Rapp, a CIA operative, is sent in through the heating system to assess the situation and find a way to rescue the President and the hostages. This is non-stop action at its best and it includes the inner workings of the CIA, the Army's Delta Force, Navy Seals, the FBI, and the joint chiefs, along with the less than competent politicians of the administration. I would highly recommend this one and I am looking forward to reading others in the series. I know Vince Flynn died last year but I hear the Rapp series will be continued by another writer. Hopefully, the new stories will measure up to Flynn's!
