Vince Flynn wrote a fiction series of 13 novels that follow CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, and one fictional novel called "Term Limits" about holding public officials accountable for their misdeeds. "Kill Shot" was the last completed novel Flynn published and a prequel to the third Mitch Rapp book.
"The Mitch Rapp Series" follows an agent as he races against time trying to subvert the plans of terrorists. In "Memorial Day," he stops a group from detonating a nuclear bomb in Washington. In "Transfer of Power," Rapp fights terrorists who take hostages inside the White House. In "Consent to Kill," he is fighting for his life and seeking revenge after a Saudi billionaire sets a bounty for his death.
Vince Flynn wrote about terrorism before it was an international issue because he realized that was the direction conflict was heading at the end of the Cold War. Flynn had many high-profile politicians as fans, such as President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush and Governor Tim Pawlenty. After Flynn passed away in 2013, there was talk of the development of a Mitch Rapp book into a movie with Bruce Willis playing Rapp's mentor. As of 2015, the project has yet to be completed.
