Edge of the seat thriller. With the recent breach of security at the State Dinner by party crashers it makes you wonder if the scenario in this book is possible!

Excellent book. The book was pretty slow to get into the action at first, but the book was great once I got to the middle. I love how the points of view constantly change from the terrorists, to Stansfield, to Kennedy, to Mitch Rapp, and to others. The book definitely captures emotions. I rate this book 5 stars and recommend this book and series to anyone. The series only gets better!

Another good thriller by Flynn. Terrorists have taken over the White House and the President is in a bunker. A lot of good suspense as two "good guys" find a way in to the White House and take down the terrorists.

Flynn has done it again with the fast-paced political thriller. With just hours counting before terrorist can get to the President, Mitch Rapp is fighting against all odds to get to him first. Excellent read!!

This was a very good book. Great storyline. As a previous Special Operations soldier, I found it both realistic and believable with respect to how the author dealt with all things associated with the SpecOps elements.

I love every one of Vince Flynn's books. Mitch Rapp is a predecessor to Jack Bauer and 24. You will love his no nonsense attitude. Flynn has some kind of "in" into the CIA and these books are very authentic. He's even been called into the CIA director's office and praised for his works (all from an interview with Flynn on Imus in the Morning). Read any of them but it's better in order to see what makes Rapp, Rapp. Transfer of Power is the first Mitch Rapp novel.

Once you start reading the Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn, you will be hooked into finishing the series. I just wish this country had some real Mitch Rapp's to take on the terrorist around the world.

I'm hooked on Vince Flynn's books starring Mitch Rapp. It's a thrilling read and I've learned so much about how our government works. I would suggest you read them in order. I started in the middle of the series but have backtracked to start at the beginning. The books are fast to read with short chapters so there's lots of convenient stopping points. I highly recommend this book.

This is the first book that I have read by Vince Flynn. I enjoyed it very much. I am impressed by his writing style and skills. His subject was timely and the story believable. His characters are well developed. I hope he keeps many of the same characters from story to story. The main character, Rapp, in "Transfer of Power" is the sort of character that one wants to revisit time and again.

Well written, but the protagonist really just happens to have things work out. He doesn't really do much, pro-actively.

In this political thriller staged almost entirely around a hostage standoff, and mixes in a spicy broth of brutal terrorists, heroic commandos and enough secret agent hijinks to keep the confrontation bubbling. The villains are led by Rafique Aziz, a notorious Arab terrorist who takes over the White House as he poses as awealthy campaign contributors and is welcomed through the front door. President Robert Hayes manages to escape to his bunker, but religious zealot Aziz takes almost 100 hostages, seals off the White House and begins making demands. With the president incommunicado and weak-willed yet power hungry Vice President Sherman Baxter in charge, the Pentagon and the CIA resort to their secret weapon: commando extraordinaire Mitch Rapp. Thrilling book at the start of a series of Mitch Rapp books.

I loved this book. It was a great summer read. It reminded me of when I used to watch 24. The main character was very Jack Bauer-ish. Really enjoyed it!

I thought this book was pretty fast paced. It was interesting to see all the politics involved when the president was in danger. The only issue I had was that there were a lot of people to remember. But I read the book quickly and am going to read more about these characters.

Vince Flynn books are so special - it's so sad that he has passed away. He catches your attention and it's almost impossible to stop reading until that last page is turned. My favorite author and he'll be yours, too.

Although the action spots are interesting, overall the writing tends to be overblown and angry, coming across more as propaganda than literature. The characters are unlikable and unbelievable, and they seem to rely too heavily on bullying through rather than exploring the intelligent side of the Intelligence community. It's a fast read, but I still wish I could get the hours it took to read it back.
