"Consent to Kill"

There's a price on professional government assassin Mitch Rapp's head, in the Vince Flynn thriller Consent to Kill. A powerful Saudi billionaire wants Mitch dead, in compensation for his son's life. But the one thing you don't want to do to Mitch Rapp is try to kill him because all you'll do is make him mad.



I use different names for the school and the society and things like that, because I didn't want anyone to say, 'Well, this isn't how it is at Yale.' And I was like, 'No, this is how it is in the story.' ... No one can say, 'Oh, well this isn't Skull and Bones.' Well, it's not Skull and Bones, and it's not Scroll and Key, and it's not Book and Snake. It's Rose and Grave.
