Author Kyle Mills to Finish Mitch Rapp Series

vinceflynnAuthor Vince Flynn died last year after a battle with cancer. At the time, he was only two chapters into his next Mitch Rapp book The Survivor.

Author Kyle Mills has stepped in to complete the story of the famous undercover CIA counter terrorism agent. The Vince Flynn Estate has signed a three-book deal with Mills and Simon & Schuster’s Atria Books to complete The Survivor and deliver two new books in the series. Emily Bestler, the editor of all of Flynn’s books, will edit the new works.

In a note posted on VinceFlynn.com, Mills explained his own connection with Flynn and his plans for the books. “My goal with The Survivor is to stick very closely to Vince’s style and to try to capture Mitch exactly as he did,” he wrote.  ”I’m lucky that The Last Man included a lot of clues as to where Mitch’s story would go next.  The hope is to create a book that even lifelong fans will have a hard time differentiating from the rest of the series. Not an easy task, but I’m working hard to get as close as I can.”
