RIP Vince Flynn

USA Today

Novelist Vince Flynn, who was diagnosed with stage three metastatic prostate cancer in 2010, but continued to write his best-selling thrillers, has died at the age of 47.

Flynn died Wednesday morning at United Hospital in St. Paul.

He's best known for his CIA page-turners that starred Mitch Rapp, a counterterrorism operative who made Flynn the darling of conservatives.

He wrote 14 USA TODAY best sellers. Three reached No. 2 on the list: Kill Shot and The Last Man (both in 2012) and American Assassin in 2010
Vince Flynn was one of my favorite writers and by all accounts a really great guy. My heart goes out to his family, friends and fans. I just need to say...Fuck cancer!

I enjoyed his work and had heard he was battling cancer. What a shame.

Emphatically not a fan of his work but 47 is far too young.
