MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Publication of Vince Flynn’s unfinished novel is postponed indefinitely after the best-selling Minnesota author’s death last month.
Flynn’s longtime editor, Emily Bestler, made the announcement Thursday.
Bestler says Flynn had not completed the manuscript when he died June 19 at age 47 after a more than two-year battle with prostate cancer.
The book, titled “The Survivor,” was planned for release this fall.
Bestler says in a statement it’s too soon to know how much of the book was written, or if Flynn had made arrangements if he could not complete the book. So she says publication is listed as “postponed indefinitely” instead of “canceled.”
Flynn wrote the Mitch Rapp counterterrorism thriller series. His 14th novel, “The Last Man,” was published last year.
