Vince Flynn 1966 - 2013
June 27, 2013
Last week, as I was chatting with a customer while in the process of checking his materials out, he remarked that Vince Flynn had passed away from prostate cancer. Vince Flynn created a popular espionage series featuring Mitch Rapp. In the first book, American Assassin, Mitch was selected to become a CIA super-agent for his physical prowess and his unwavering patriotism that sought retribution In the 12 books that followed, the indestructible Mitch Rapp became more than just a hired gun. I have enjoyed all of his books for Mitch Rapp’s unstoppable attitude and his ability to overcome any obstacle. According to the press, Mr. Flynn was working on a book that was due to be released this fall.
His modern tales of terrorism join other adrenaline junkie authors such as Tom Clancy, Brad Thor, Robert Ludlum, Gayle Lynds, and Ben Coes. If you like action-packed, fast paced novels with international intrigue, any of the above authors will satisfy your need for covert operations.
