Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture

America’s most powerful leader becomes its prime target, a “nightmarish” (Booklist) scenario made all-too-real in this Mitch Rapp thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn.

The stately calm of a Washington morning is shattered when a group of terrorists descends, killing dozens and taking nearly one hundred hostages as they massacre their way into the White House. The Secret Service evacuates the president to an underground bunker—and while officials argue over how to negotiate with the enemy, Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, moves stealthily among the hidden corridors and secret passageways of the executive mansion, to save the hostages before the terrorists reach the president. But another adversary—someone within Washington’s elite—is determined to see Rapp’s rescue mission fail.

Fantastic

This book was fantastic. Vince Flynn draws you in immediately and his characters are so believable that you become immersed in the action from the get go. Pure genius...

Wow!

What a great non-stop ride this read is! I had serious difficulty putting this book down at night. This is Washington DC at it’s best, and worst, with a few good guys and gals pulling out all of their tools to save the country from losing it’s President to fanatical terrorists.

Transfer of Power

Excellent plot filled with plenty of tension and violence involving the best counter-terrorism people in the Government and every elite combat group in the Military trying to rescue the President and retake the White House after terrorists seize and hold it for three days.

The weaknesses are in the stereotype politicians and others trying to exploit the crisis and the contrived actions--a woman reporter planting a kiss on the cheek of Rapp, the hero and one of those ultimate killers working for the good guys, just seconds before he murders one of the terrorists. Things like this were hard to swallow and distractions in the middle of the excellent action sequences.

Overall a very good killer-diller, You'll just will have to put up with some of the phony characters and typical plots that undermine the action.
