New York Times Bestselling Author Vince Flynn Releases Supercharged Thriller – American Assassin
VJ Books presents signed editions of Vince Flynn’s American Assassin -- the eleventh novel in the highly popular Mitch Rapp series. American Assassin (2010: Simon & Schuster) introduces the young Mitch Rapp as he takes on his first assignment.
American Assassin - Synopsis
CIA Operations Director Thomas Stansfield knows he must prepare his people for the next war. The rise of Islamic terrorism is coming, and it needs to be met abroad before it reaches America's shores. Stansfield directs his protégée, Irene Kennedy, and his old Cold War colleague, Stan Hurley, to form a new group of clandestine operatives who will work outside the normal chain of command—men who do not exist.
What type of man is willing to kill for his country without putting on a uniform? Kennedy finds him in the wake of the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack. Two-hundred and seventy souls perished that cold December night, and thousands of family and friends were left searching for comfort. Mitch Rapp was one of them, but he was not interested in comfort. He wanted retribution.
Six months of intense training has prepared Rapp to bring the war to the enemy's doorstep, and he does so with brutal efficiency. What Rapp doesn't know is that the enemy is aware of his existence and has prepared a trap. Rapp will need every ounce of skill and cunning if he is to survive.
Vince Flynn Book List
Other books in the Mitch Rapp Series include: Transfer of Power (1999), The Third Option (2000), Separation of Power (2001), Executive Power (2002), Memorial Day (2004), Consent to Kill (2005), Act of Treason (2006), Protect and Defend (2007), Extreme Measures (2008), Pursuit of Honor (2009).
Vince Flynn has also written one stand alone novel -- Term Limits. Although Term Limits does not feature Matt Rapp, it does tell the story of other Rapp series characters before they met Mitch Rapp. “I recommend reading Term Limits before or shortly after reading Pursuit of Honor” says Lee of VJ Books (http://www.vjbooks.com). “Although not necessary, I believe that reading Term Limits early on provides a nice foundation for reading the rest of the series.” Term Limits became a New York Times Best Seller.
