RIP Vince Flynn

Sad to hear that Vince Flynn has passed away after a long battle with prostate cancer, he was just 47 years old

Nuts. He was one of my favorites. And he was only two years older than me...

A true gentleman, one of the good guys. He was upbeat to the end. I am very, very sad.

I was under the impression prostate cancer is rare for men his age and slow growing. I guess he was unlucky.

I've never read him, but his books are very popular. I guess they'll license someone else to write his books now, like Ludlum.

Some prostate cancer is slow growing. Others are very aggressive. Also how soon they catch it can be a determining factor.

His father died of prostate cancer -- young as well.

I desperately hope that no one be licensed. I would be surprised if his widow allowed it. There was only one Vince Flynn/Mitch Rabb.

In that case he certainly should have been aware of it and taking appropriate steps.

You're assuming he didn't. Medicine is amazing stuff, and it's come a long way, but we're all going to die some day. We never know when it is, or whether we'll be given the chance to prepare for it the way Mr. Flynn was.

I felt like he was out of ideas, and his books tended to rehash the same moral dilemma (how to defeat the monster without becoming the monster.) But he knew how to write a page-turner and I'll miss my annual Mitch Rapp story.

RIP Mr. Flynn.

This one came as a real surprise to me, he wasn't that old and I hadn't heard anything about him being ill.
