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.
Fans of Tom Clancy will enjoy this work of international intrigue. Hero Mitch Rapp is a counter-terrorism specialist working on his last mission for the CIA, unofficially of course. Eager to retire and spend the rest of his days with his newly discovered soul mate, Rapp's mission suddenly goes very bad. He quickly finds himself evading a massive manhunt while attempting to figure out exactly what went wrong. His persistence eventually leads him to Capitol Hill and a satisfyingly sinister plot. Narrator Nick Sullivan provides a steady pace through Flynn's economic prose; his presentation is engaging and articulate. Definitely worth purchasing. Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L.
