Number one New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn was at The Reagan Library for a book signing and lecture on his latest book, American Assassin.

Mr. Flynn is best known for his explosive thrillers featuring CIA super-agent Mitch Rapp. In American Assassin, Mr. Flynn goes back in time to introduce the young Mitch Rapp in his first assignment. In this novel, the CIA is looking for the type of man who is willing to kill for his country without putting on a uniform. They find 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. As action-packed, fast-paced, and brutally realistic as it gets, Flynn’s latest page-turner shows readers how it all began. Behind the steely gaze of the nation’s ultimate hero is a young man primed to become an American Assassin.

Vince Flynn decided to write a book in 1990, even though he had been diagnosed with dyslexia in grade school and had struggled with reading and writing all his life. Seven years and more than sixty rejection letters later he took the unusual step of self-publishing his first novel, Term Limits. The book went to number one in the Twin Cities, and within a week had a new agent and two-book deal with Pocket Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint. Since then, his books have become perennial bestsellers in both paperback and hardcover, and he has become known for his research and prescient warnings about the rise of Islamic Radical Fundamentalism and terrorism. Read by current and former presidents, foreign heads of state, and intelligence professionals around the world, Flynn’s novels are taken so seriously one high-ranking CIA official told his people, “I want you to read Flynn’s books and start thinking about how we can more effectively wage this war on terror.”
