# 2 Noah Boyd:

Boyd’s lead character is former FBI agent Steve Vail. In his debut novel, The Bricklayer, Vail is working as, yes a Bricklayer, when he is recruited to assist the FBI with a case. Once in the mix he is limited by the very constraints of bureaucracy which forced him out of the bureau in the first place. As much as he wants to walk away he is torn by the feelings he has developed for Agent Kate Bannon. Boyd’s second novel returns Vail in Agent X. These two novels are absolutely wonderful and must read for anyone who loves action and suspense novels, but alas we these two will be Mr. Boyd’s only novels. Noah Boyd, real name Paul Lindsay died last year after a lengthy bout with blood cancer. For more on former Agent Lindsay, read below.
