‘Transfer of Power‘ is a singularly awesome work by the hugely talented Vince Flynn. Kick-ass action, clean writing and a well-scripted narrative combine to provide some serious adrenaline rush. Due to time constraints, I had to settle for reading the book over a couple of bus rides, but I sure would have loved to read it over a single sitting.
When the CIA take into custody an Iraqi militant, they have no inkling of the humongous secret they are about to learn. An attack has been planned on the very same day by extremist forces to take control of the White House. But before they can summon the forces and the time to act on the information, the White House is down. The only ray of hope is that the President has been whisked away to his bunker. But he is not safe for long. As a series of events unfold that rock the seat of power in the most powerful country in the world, it is up to one man to neutralize the threat to the country.
Featuring Flynn’s recurring character, Mitch Rapp, the book takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the hallowed paths of the White House. Flynn has crafted a book no lover of political thrillers can afford to miss.
I’m a huge fan of political thrillers; Tom Clancy‘s ‘Rainbow Six’ was one of the first books that got me hooked and since then, I’ve been lapping up all the books on the genre I can get my hands on. Vince Flynn is considered a master of the art, as I have found out. I had read just one other of Flynn’s works-‘Term Limits’- and was sufficiently impressed to try another of his books. Well, the gamble paid off and I was left with a huge grin when I finished the book. Vince Flynn has just made it to the top of my ‘Must-Read-Everything-By-The-Author’ list.
