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.
After terrorists assault his motorcade, killing his wife and several Secret Service agents, vice president (and faltering presidential candidate) Brian Baxter is handed a landslide by tearful voters. But was the attack everything it seemed? With a nine-city tour.
Flynn spins another tale involving counter-terrorism expert Mitch Rapp and CIA chief Irene Kennedy. Mitch and Irene are apprehensive over the arrival of the new vice president, who was nearly killed in an assassination attempt prior to the election that killed the wife of the presidential candidate. The men easily win the election, but when Mitch apprehends the assassin, he learns how cold-blooded the new VP really is. With little time left before the inauguration, Mitch and Irene are desperate to find a way to prevent a travesty. Narrator George Guidall demonstrates why he is one of the industry's top readers; his ability to portray characters is remarkable, and his pacing, phrasing, and accents are superb. Another terrific listening experience. Most highly recommended.

The fallout from a horrific Washington explosion has just begun -- and so has CIA superagent Mitch Rapp's hunt for a killer with a personal agenda.
In the final weeks of a fierce presidential campaign, a motorcade carrying candidate Josh Alexander is shattered by a car bomb. Soon after the attack, Alexander is carried to victory by a sympathy vote, but his assailants have not been found. When CIA director Irene Kennedy and Special Agent Skip McMahon receive damaging intelligence on Washington's most powerful players, they call o n Mitch Rapp -- the one man reckless enough to unravel a global network of contract killers on an explosive mission that leads back to the heart of our nation's capital... and the inner sanctum of the Oval Office.
