Vince Flynn to write new series and other news

This month in Vince Flynn’s regular fan newsletter (available at his official site http://www.vinceflynn.com) Flynn revealed that he has started work on a new series of novels.

This series will have an entirely new set of characters, and more news is expected in the coming months.  Flynn doesn’t comment about the setting that this book will place the characters, will his writing still focus on the inner workings of the CIA?  We’ll have to wait and see.

Flynn also announced his next book would have an American release of October this year, so get ready!  It could make the perfect Christmas present.  Again he has been tight lipped and announced no title or cover.

What do you think Vince Flynn’s next book should be about?  What would you like to see happen to Mitch Rapp, Irene Kennedy, Scott Coleman or any of the other characters?  Leave a comment and let us know!

Fighting the War on Terror in secret, he has been forced to lie to everyone he cares about, including his wife and children.

Protect and Defend

With Iran on the brink of developing a nuclear weapon, Israel is forced to react. But by destroying Iran’s main nuclear facility, creating a radioactive tomb and an environmental disaster, Israel has triggered an international crisis.

Enter Lebanese master terrorist Imad Mukhtar, who’s spent the past decade picking his targets and preparing his cells for this exact moment. All he needs is approval from Iran’s Supreme Council, and he will strike at America’s soft underbelly and make her bleed like never before.

With the US on high alert, the President calls on the one man ruthless enough to counter the fanatical terrorist.

In the tangled world of espionage, there are those, even among America’s allies, who feel Rapp has grown too effective. They’ve been looking for a chance to eliminate America’s No 1 counterterrorism operative – and now their time has come.

When a spike in CIA intelligence suggests a major terrorist attack planned for Memorial Day, the president orders Mitch Rapp, his top counterterrorism operative, to pull out all the stops.

Within a subterranean room, they discover a treasure trove of maps, computers, files and bills of lading for multiple freighters heading to US ports – all pointing to plans for a catastrophic attack on Washington DC.

Information is quickly relayed back to CIA headquarters, and a nuclear emergency search team scrambles to the scene. In a few hours, the freighters have been located and the danger averted. Or has it? To Mitch Rapp, the whole operation seemed just a bit too easy. Following his instincts on a quest to unearth the whole truth, Rapp makes a truly terrifying discovery – and with Memorial Day closing fast, he must find a way to prevent a disaster of unimaginable proportions …
