Steve Vail, former discarded covert operative and the FBI’s new go-to guy for the toughest jobs, returns in Agent X—the pulse-pounding follow-up to the explosive New York Times bestselling debut thriller by Noah Boyd, The Bricklayer.

Editorial Reviews

?There?s a new hero on the bookshelf. Imagine Lee Child?s Jack Reacher as a disgruntled ex-FBI agent who makes ends meet by laying bricks.... Steve Vail is a terrific new addition to the crime shift with a Sherlock Holmes perspective mixed with killer elite.... But what really sells The Bricklayer is Boyd?s inside perspective. The bureaucratic posturing, the under-appreciated heroes and the mind-set of evil are razor sharp in Boyd?s unflinching prose.... You?ll want to slide The Bricklayer in alongside Lee Child?s Jack Reacher series.? (The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, MS))
