Vince Flynn, Novelist, 1966-2013

Saddened by the news that thriller writer Vince Flynn has died of prostate cancer. He was 47.

Author Vince Flynn (Courtesy photo)Flynn – whom I never met – died Wednesday in St. Paul, Minn.

He’s best known for his CIA thrillers starring protagonist Mitch Rapp. Flynn wrote more than a dozen best sellers. Three reached No. 2 on the USA Today list: KILL SHOT and THE LAST MAN (both 2012) and AMERICAN ASSASSIN (2010).

His books are published by Atria. His next novel, THE SURVIVOR, is scheduled to be released in October.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
