What's Your Story: Slaven Tomasi


Please share some of your background
Former Marine and current Respiratory Care Practitioner.

When did you start reading Mitch Rapp?
Started by finding a random book in a bin at an airport on my way to Afghanistan. The book was Extreme Measures and it sat in my bag for a few weeks until I needed something other than working out and sleep during my down time. I quickly read that book and then had to wait a horrible few weeks until my unit convoyed to a larger base from the small, middle of nowhere place we were at and was able to get some agonizing slow wi-fi and download all the current books in the series at the time. Did some research and read them first in publishing order, then again in chronological order.

Which books is your favorite/why?
Oh man. I can’t pick one. I’ll try and do my best and most my top 3, in no particular order. American Assassin, Consent to kill, and Order to Kill.

Do you have a favorite character and why?
Is this a serious question? Ok Besides Mitch Rapp, I love and miss Stan Hurley.

If you could be any character in Vince's novels, who would it be and why?
Again, Mitch. The world needs more people like Mitch defending this great country. I did my best as a Marine. But in today’s crazy world, I wish I could have done more.

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Mitch Rapp, Vince or Kyle?
I’ve had an amazing opportunity to meet Kyle, he is such a great guy and look forward to seeing him again if I get the opportunity.
