Memorial Day by Vince Flynn

I just finished the sixth book of Vince Flynn. He has written and published 10. I am reading them in the order of their publication. First was Term Limits, then Transfer of Power, then The Third Option, then Separation of Power, then Executive Power and now this one Memorial Day.

CIA Super agent Mitch Rapp is at it again. This time he discovers a plot to attack America on her soil with a nuclear bomb or two. It is a fast paced read and the adventure takes you from the middle east and over half of our country.

This year, CBS films optioned for movie rights for Flynn's counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp, a character featured in eight of Flynn's nine best-selling novels. They have indicated that Mitch Rapp will be part of an action-thriller movie franchise. In addition, Simon & Schuster and Atria Books have also agreed to publish four of Flynn's books. The first will come out in 2010.

Now, on to Consent to Kill.

Simon & Schuster/Atria Book Publishing/CBS Films.
Simon & Schuster/Atria Book Publishing and CBS Films -- both divisions of CBS Corporation -- have reached film and publishing agreements with best-selling author Vince Flynn for upcoming projects.
Flynn is the author of nine best-selling novels, eight of which feature the popular character, counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. There are over 10 million copies of Flynn's books in print in the U.S., and with his most recent book, Protect and Defend, he joined the ranks of those select few authors who can immediately claim the Number One spot on hardcover bestseller lists in their first week on sale.
CBS Films has optioned the rights for Flynn's Mitch Rapp character with the intention of creating a character-based, action-thriller movie franchise. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, who produced two of last summer's hits -- "Transformers" and Stephen King's "1408" -- and Nick Wechsler ("We Own The Night") are in negotiations to produce the films.
