Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fast paced, politically charged, top-notch.” Strand Magazine
“A slick political thriller…moves at a breakneck speed…You won’t be able to put it down.” Times Record News (Wichita Falls, Texas)
“Flynn knows how to deliver action in his novels, and Transfer of Power has all the earmarks of a story headed for the movie screen.”  Pioneer Press (St. Paul)
“A spicy broth of brutal terrorists, heroic commandos and enough secret agent hijinks to keep the confrontation bubbling until its flag-raising end…[Flynn’s] description of the White House is impressive; readers will wonder if the secret passageways, hidden rooms and clever deception devices that help load this story with seemingly endless intrigue, really exist.”  Publishers Weekly
“Flynn delivers a riveting espionage thriller that will satisfy action fans who like Chuck Logan but won’t alienate readers who want a little nuance with their suspense.” Booklist
Transfer of Power emerges in its sense of authenticity, depth of research, and almost seamless dramatic scenario…One of Flynn’s finest skills as an up-and-coming young master of the genre of political thrillers is his ability to create a cast of compelling characters.”  BookPage
