One smart man while he was alive with a lot of CIA contacts.
I think I've read all of them. I love his books.
Good books! Shame he passed away.
It is. He had a co-writer finish the book he was working on when he died and it was good. I wonder if that person will continue and keep Mitch Rapp going.
Yes he will. I saw his wife on TV the other day and she said that Vince had 13 more manuscripts pretty much finished and that Kyle Mills will write them for him. I'm currently reading the one I put a picture of. Almost done though.
I'm glad to hear that. Rapp is a great character. I read the on you're reading now. Couldn't tell you what it was about, but I love all the stories. I enjoy them while I'm reading them and when I'm done, I'm on to the next book.
Did she mention whether they will be under Flynn''s name or Kyle's or both?
Both names as it should be.
I figured it would be both since they were Flynn's manuscripts. I'll keep an eye out for them. Thaniks.
I'm a huge fan. Mitch Rapp is just flat out cool. I admire his way of greasing the skids of justice. I was totally bummed when Flynn died. I know there's somebody ghost writing more of his stuff - I don't recall the name, but the one mentioned above doesn't sound right.
The movie American Assassin is based on one his books. It hasn't gotten great reviews. The kid playing Rapp doesn't look like my mental image of Rapp - that's no reason to call it crap - but I haven't seen it yet.
Brings up a question of all you Vince Flynn fans - who do you think should play Mitch Rapp in the movie versions of these stories? Most of my favorites are too old or dead. Dwayne Johnson would be OK, but his movie history is more light hardhearted - I don't know that he would transition well.
Keanu Reeves could handle it and pull it off. Maybe Jason Statham with hair!
Kyle Mills has written three of Flynn's manuscripts into books now. This makes the fourth.
Two excellent suggestions.
The one they DID cast is Dylan Obrien. I hope he does well - but he looks like Doogie Howser for Pete's sake!
True! That book was written in 2010 and was supposed to be the story of how Mitch started out. Michael Keaton should make a good Stan Hurley though!
Agreed! Keaton looks kind of rough on the edges.
I am looking forward to seeing the movie.
I am too! Hurley sure trained Rapp! Finished that newest book and it was good. Don't think there is a government agency in the world that isn't afraid of him!
So, Kyle Mills catches the Vince Flynn flavor we came to love? That's cool - I'm ordering a book today!
He does as I saw Vince Flynn's widow on TV and she said that Vince had left behind 13 almost completed manuscripts and that Mitch Rapp will be around for a while yet! Not quite as intense as Flynn but pretty darn close!
I forget which book it was, but Rapp had discovered a bad judge. The judge had to ..... go away, as a Mafia hitman might say. But it had to look like an accident. Rapp tied that phucker up in his own living room and set propane tanks up to blow his ass up.
Rapp is as brutal as I want guys actually in those jobs to be.
Now you got me pumped up. I'll see ya later - I got to order a book.
All of them. Loved them all.
No??? Are they good?
Very good books!
All of them.
I did not read these stories, but they remind me of certain "Fleuve Noir" genre novels, i.e. crime, police and spy stories, from Sherlock Holmes to Miss Marple, James Bond, Maigret, San Antonio, etc., etc.
I'll have to put them on my bucket list ...
