The closest I ever got to Vince Flynn was on March 2, 2012.

People were paying for his, mine was on the Kindle free list for 5 days.

Will check your book out after i get through my collection of Daniel Silva and David Balducci books
I really liked his Mitch Rapp guy a mixture of James Bond.Dirty Harry and Rambo.
And no PC bullshit in any of his books.

I wrote back and forth with Vince about a few details in one of his books. I am shocked and saddened at his death. Mitch Rapp lives.

His first book using real politicians but changing the names,Kennedy was easy to guess as the bloated alcoholic senator..
In his later books with Mitch Rapp he had a female Senator from CA whom ( a really nasty bitch) he called senator Lonsdale..

Schumer was the both ends guy. I figure the Republican was Bob Michel or Bob Dole. Term limits was a great book.

The main ex-seal guy in Term Limits makes a few appearances in the later books as a private contractor who Mitch Rapp hires for some nasty work.

All the youngsters are dying today. First the Tony Soprano guy and now this Vince Flynn, whose books I have read (though like Tom Clancy, they do get a little repetitive after a while).

Way too young to die, the both of them.
