Vince Flynn was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1966. He graduated from the University of St. Thomas and went to work as an account and sales marketing specialist for Kraft Foods. In 1990, he accepted an aviation candidate slot with the United States Marine Corps, but was medically disqualified before starting the program. He worked as a bartender while writing his first book, Term Limits, which after receiving numerous rejections he self-published.
It hit the New York Times bestseller list in paperback. He went on to write the Mitch Rapp series. He was a story consultant for the television series 24. He died after a long battle with prostate cancer on June 19, 2013 at the age of 47.
Memorial Day follows the plot threads developed in Consent to Kill. When Mitch learns his wife is pregnant, his perspective starts to change as he contemplates his new responsibilities. Unfortunately, the rich parent of a Saudi terrorist he apprehended in the plot to bomb Washington is also feeling protective and decides to hire an assassin to eliminate Mitch. Narrator George Guidall's performance is well executed and unobtrusive; he tells these stories simply and convincingly. Both are highly recommended. Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L.

Fighting terrorism on foreign ground, CIA superagent Mitch Rapp does whatever it takes to protect American freedom.
CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States, just as the nation's capital prepares for a grand Memorial Day tribute to the veterans of World War II. Racing to Afghanistan, Mitch Rapp leads a commando raid on an al Queda stronghold in a remote border village -- and defuses plans for a nuclear strike on Washington. The crisis averted, the special ops work is done. But Rapp knows, in the face of a new kind of enemy, nothing is as it seems -- and it's up to him alone to avert a disaster of unimaginable proportions.
