TITLE: TRANSFER OF POWER
AUTHOR: VINCE FLYNN
RATING: 5 STARS
On a scale of 1-5, I would give this book a 10!!! This is a fast moving, grab you in and don’t let go, political thriller! It's the first book in the Mitch Rapp series, all about a CIA agent who is fighting terrorism. All of the books in the series have made it onto the New York Times best sellers list, and I understand why! Every one of them is terrific, but I have to say that Transfer of Power is still my favorite. Vince Flynn is one of my all time favorite authors.
This book revolves around a group of terrorists that are intent on taking over the White House and killing the President. It was extremely intriguing to see the way that different members of the government react in very different ways to the crisis. Because of my job, most of the books that I “read”, I listen to on audio book. This was one of those, and I found that I was so into the book that I would forget to take breaks and not realize it until an hour or two later!
This is a book that I HIGHLY recommend! Vince Flynn is one of the best action writers that I have ever read. One thing that really hit me as I was reading this book and several others in the series, is the fact that it was written before 9/11. And I just had to wonder if things might have been different if more people had the same view on terrorism that is portrayed in these books. Anyways, fantastic book, loved it!!! Can't recommend it strongly enough!
