Publication Order of Mitch Rapp Books
Chronological Order of Mitch Rapp Books
All the Mitch Rapp books take place in the order that they were published EXCEPT for American Assassin and Kill Shot. Written in 2010, American Assassin takes place with Mitch Rapp joining the CIA, and details his first missions. Kill Shot was written in 2012 and takes place after American Assassin, but before any of the other Rapp books.
It’s recommended that you read the books in publication order because you get the full effect of American Assassin having already known Mitch Rapp, and it’s a lot better book due to that.
Notes: While Mitch Rapp does not appear in it, the Vince Flynn book Term Limits, published in 1997, features various characters that will appear in future Mitch Rapp books. If you like the Mitch Rapp books, you will like Term Limits for sure. You can get the best price on it here.
As of The Survivor, the Mitch Rapp series is written by Kyle Mills based on the work of Flynn.
