“Steve Vail, now a bricklayer, was once an FBI agent, until his attitude got him fired. But the FBI has come calling again because they need someone who can work outside the box, and get results. Noah Boyd has written a smart, sexy, thrill-ride of a read.”

"Terrific pace, surprises galore....Move over Jack Reacher, here comes The Bricklayer."
--James Patterson There is a brand new master on the thriller scene. Noah Boyd makes a truly spectacular entrance with The Bricklayer--the first in an explosive new series featuring former FBI agent Steve Vail that recalls the #1 bestsellers of John Sandford and Lee Child. An ex-FBI agent himself, Boyd adds gritty insider knowledge and color to this stunning novel, and the word on the street is The Bricklayer is fabulous. Kay Scarpetta's creator, New York Times bestseller Patricia Cornwell, calls it, "Dazzling," while Lee Child himself raves, "Non-stop action and non-stop authenticity make this a real winner."
