Vince Flynn, Prolific Author dies. If You Have Not Read Him I Highly Recomend.

vince wrote cia type thrillers where the main character was “Mitch Rapp“..Lets just say mitch does not play by the rules. Hell mitch never heard of the RULEBOOK. so most of the time he is battling muzzies. by page 12 the body count is usually in double digits.

Good thing the books are all out in paperback and can be gotten at library. Here is a tribute from Rush followed by a list of the books. Best to read in order, but not NECESSARY.         ~    Steve    ~

  1. I was terribly saddened to hear Mr. Vince Flynn passed away. My respects and condolences to his wife, children and those who knew him. What a loss. I am half-way through his book #6, “Executive Power”. I am reading them in order … Pre-ordered #13, “The Last Man”. God bless him.

     
  2. Eric, me too.

     
  3. I know if my beloved Dad was still alive, he’d have read every one of Flynn’s books! May both souls continue to rest in the peaceful light of Heaven with our Lord! Amen.

     
  4. I will add his books to my reading list.

     
  5. TD, I promise you you can’t go wrong. I found him about 6 books in so it was agony waiting a yr between. Now just go to library and get them in order.
    Like I said, It kind of makes me sad as I was hoping somewhere
    There really was a “Mitch Rapp”

      I hope somebody can recreate Mitch Rapp. How will we all endure a universe without Rapp? I could ignore everything around me as long as I could listen to a Vince Flynn novel on CD.

       
  6. What caused his death?????

     
  7. I always enjoyed his interviews on TV, very artIculate and such a smart young man. The literary world lost a great writer yesterday.

    He was my favorite author. What I really recommend for max enjoyment is to get the audio versions read by George Guidall. The audio books are fabulous. I have quite a few Vince Flynn books. A few years back I had never heard of him until he was on Glenn Beck’s FNC program. When I first read Term Limits, I was really hooked. I typically liked Science Fiction and Fantasy – but lately had been bored with speculative fiction. Thursday on Rush Limbaugh’s program he mentioned he was a little down about Flynn’s passing. That’s how I felt about Flynn too. Rush had actually known him personally.

     
  9. and was an All-American . Rapp was also offered a scholarship by the University of North Carolina , but turned that one down because his high school sweetheart Maureen was attending Syracuse with the hope of getting into broadcasting . Maureen, whom Rapp had known since he was fifteen years old, was killed in the December 21, 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 . She had been one of thirty-five Syracuse students returning from a semester overseas.

    Flynn, Vince Ambushed by stage III metastatic prostate cancer in November 2010, author Vince Flynn fought for life as tenaciously as the characters he created, but closed the final chapter with peaceful surrender on June 19, 2013. He was fortified by 35 of his family, friends and clergy–who had his back. Vince was born April 6, 1966 in St. Paul. He proudly graduated from The Saint Thomas Academy and he earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of St. Thomas in 1988. His parents are Kathy (Dorle) Flynn, a renowned wildlife artist and Terry Flynn, a beloved high school teacher, coach and businessman. They now reside in Diamondhead, Mississippi and Apple Valley, Minnesota. Vinnie said he was blessed to be born into a large Irish Catholic story-telling family. He is survived by six siblings: Tim (Ann) Flynn of Apple Valley, Pat (Lisa) Flynn of Orono, Kevin (Michelle) Flynn of Lakeville, Dan Flynn (Jayne Chromik) of Eagan, Sheila Flynn (Mark Scheuer) of Savage, and Kelly Flynn of Apple Valley, as well as, 18 nieces and nephews. Vince will be missed by his large extended family, millions of loyal fans, and his friends in the publishing industry. During his distinguished but all-too-short career Vince published 14 action-packed thrillers which soared to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List (preceded by 69 rejection letters, all of which he saved). In spite of his illness he continued to work on his 15th novel and was in negotiations for a movie production. His entertaining personality made him in demand as a frequent guest on local and national radio and television programs. His talent for cultivating anonymous sources and gleaning knowledge about the inner workings of The Intelligence Community earned him respect on an international scale. He was told he was the most-read author at the Pentagon. Though he dined with presidents and kings, Vince remained close to his Minnesota roots, by coaching, serving on various boards and fundraising for his favorite charitable causes–especially his church, his alma maters and U. S. troops support. But his pride in those accomplishments was overshadowed still by his love for his wife Lysa whom he described as “My favorite thing about life,” and their children Dane “Danger” (17), Ingrid “Ingy” (12), and Ana “Fluffy” (10) who fueled his creativity and inspired him to “keep the faith.” Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a. m. on Monday, June 24, 2013 at the Cathedral of St. Paul, 239 Selby Avenue, St. Paul. Family and friends may visit from 9:00-10:30 a.m. at the Cathedral. Memorials in Vince’s name may be gifted to The Saint Thomas Academy at 949 Mendota Heights Road, Mendota Heights, Minnesota 55120. Electronic messages may be posted at: http://www.VinceFlynn.com/InMemorium. Cards can be sent to Vince Flynn Memorial P.O. 50676, Mendota, Minnesota 55150-0676.
