    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.
