My September book tour was a huge success thanks to the booksellers and fans who came out to support me and Mitch Rapp once again. In case you weren’t able to make one of my events, I thought I’d post a round-up of the interviews from my Enemy of the State tour. I hope you enjoy these interviews as much as I did.
Going on the road is always fun, but this year was unique. The American Assassin movie, Rapp’s origin story, gave fans one more reason to spend some time with their favorite operative. I got rave reviews from fans about the film adaptation, and I couldn’t agree more. Watching Dylan O’Brien bring the young Rapp’s focus and drive to life was an incredible experience. Hopefully, we’ll see more in the future!
