Mitch Rapp broods over the deaths of his girlfriend and other classmates on Pan Am Flight 103, until he is recruited by the CIA and receives his first assignment--to kill the arms dealer who sold the bomb that killed his friends.
Vince Flynn provides some interesting backstory on his hard-hitting hero, Mitch Rapp, in the high-impact thriller AMERICAN ASSASSIN. Readers know Mitch as an unstoppable CIA agent, but before that he was a college student with a knack for athletics. When his girlfriend and many other classmates die in the Pan Am terrorist attack, however, Mitch's life changes forever. Approached by the CIA, he is motivated to accept their offer by patriotism, curiosity--and a potent desire for revenge.
