#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin--soon to be a major motion picture What if America's most powerful leader was also its prime target? Vince Flynn's shattering thriller, Term Limits, soared onto national bestseller lists and marked the emergence of a new master of political fiction in the same league as Tom Clancy. In USA Today, Larry King called Term Limits "a page-turning read," while critics and readers nationwide praised its riveting premise of Washington under siege -- a scenario made chillingly real by this superb storyteller. Now, Flynn infiltrates America's power structure at its very core, in a new novel that places the president of the United States in the direct line of terrorist fire. 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, stepping terrifyingly close to the enemy, 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.… (mer)

Fanny packs played a much larger role in this story than I would have expected. ( )

As relations with the Middle East flair again, the White House is taken. The President is safe in his bunker but that's only temporary. Like his first book, Term Limits, Vince Flynn takes the foibles of polities and turns them into sniper weapons while tightly weaving a really good plot. ( )

The first Mitch Rapp novel I read was either Third Option or Memorial Day. I read them over 20 years ago I think, 1990's. I guess I didn't know it was a series, and think I read them independently. Oh well. LibraryThing review gave those two books higher scores then I gave them, so I thought I'd re-read them. However, I wanted to read the series in order, and was happy to see a few books I would need to read first. I am enjoying the series. I was curious what the author, Vince Flynn, was up to. I was saddened to find out he passed away. Poor family, and kind of made me feel 'different' about the books. Life sucks.

Mitch Rapp saves the day when the White House is assaulted and hostages taken. ( )
  LindaLeeJacobs | Feb 15, 2020 |
Whether reading about Mitch Rapp or the character Scot Harvath as created by Brad Thor I am humbled by the realization that although these two (2) men are characters in novels they represent the unknown quantity of Americans who have chosen to dedicate their lives to protect and defend the United States without ever seeking the glory of an award or any type of public recognition of their name.

This series provides intrigue and page-turning scenarios that could be torn from headlines or become the next possibility...

Simply said..."Don't miss it!"
