NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitch Rapp has single-handedly saved countless American lives by fighting the War on Terror. Now, he may be poised save the entire publishing industry. Author Vince Flynn's thriller Consent To Kill (Atria Books), featuring CIA assassin Mitch Rapp, continues to defy the trends for so many other authors in an otherwise down market. Since debuting at #4 on the New York Times bestseller list, #2 on the Wall Street Journal bestseller list, and #6 on the USA Today bestseller list, Consent To Kill has gone to press four additional times. After an initial printing of 300,000 books, there are now 380,000 copies of Consent To Kill in the marketplace. While each of Flynn's hardcover releases have been bestsellers, Consent To Kill already has over 43% more copies in print over its predecessor Memorial Day and has more than doubled the output of 2003's Executive Power. Consent To Kill is Vince Flynn's seventh novel, and the sixth in his Mitch Rapp Series. He's currently in the midst of a 14 city tour, the largest scale tour, thus far in his publishing career. Atria Books is a division of Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster, part of the entertainment operation of Viacom Inc.
