Sometimes you want a break; just a good read, a page turner.

Transfer of Power gets great reviews and it fills the bill. But once I started reading I was surprised to find a full throated jihadi terrorist attack on the White House written in 1999, before 9/11.

I hope Flynn got royalties from the TV show "24".

I have a few minor quibbles with the writing which flirts at times with descent into "Aw Shucks!!!" cliches.

Also, Vince, as a lifelong resident of Ohio, I must point out that there is no Democrat that could fill the role of President Hayes. A sensitive conservative public servant who goes into the bunker as Hamlet and comes out as Rambo. You are at least a generation too late - probably two generations. And a venal, corrupt white power politician Democrat from Texas as Vice President - please!!!

But if you like you like your secret agents rugged, dark and brooding, and wounded from lost love, and your hostage reporters HOT! then turn off your brain and take the ride.

It was fun!
