It’s true. The news about my contract to write the next three Mitch Rapp books just broke this morning, and I couldn’t be happier. I get to keep spending my days with everyone’s favorite operative, looking over his shoulder as he kicks butt on anyone who gets in his way.
Thanks to Fans
Without the enthusiasm, glowing reviews, and social media outreach from you, I would have never been asked to continue the series. The family and publisher are dedicated to creating a legacy Vince would be proud of, and fans ultimately decide whether I’m succeeding in that task. I appreciate you taking time to make your voices heard.
I also want to say thanks for all the suggestions, offers of help, and even the occasional criticism. Getting a handle on the entire Mitch Rapp universe is too big a job for just one person. It’s always fun to hear perspectives from people who have read and reread the series, pondering its details and subtleties. Everyone takes away something different from the books. I’m always fascinated to learn things I may have missed or to share interpretations of characters and scenarios.
Finally, thanks for all the encouraging email! Writing these books sometimes feels like an insurmountable task. When I’m bogged down and wondering about where to go next, there’s nothing like getting a note from someone passionate about the books.

Where’s Rapp Going Next?
You’ll just have to wait and see. What I can reveal is that Book 4 is well underway and that no matter how crazy the world gets, Mitch can handle it.
Once again, thanks for your support. I look forward to hearing from you!
