Sad news from Minnesota today.
WCCO-TV has learned that Flynn died Wednesday morning at United Hospital in St. Paul.
Flynn has authored 15 novels centered around the character of Mitch Rapp, an undercover CIA agent. The majority of those novels have made it to the New York Times bestseller list.
He had been battling prostate cancer since 2010.
I had the honor of meeting Flynn in 2008. I was producing the Laura Ingraham show and he came into the studio in DC for an interview to promote one of his books. He was a great guy, very normal and down to earth. The kind of guy you’d like to hang out with. He leaves behind a wife and three children. He was 47.
