“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.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gail Mchugh | 2/15/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joe O'c | 2/13/2014

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Steve Vail (first in series); ex-FBI agent is recruited to solve a case where the FBI is being forced to pay ransom to a group killing FBI enemies; loads of action and complicated puzzles "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Dick Edwards | 2/9/2014

    " A rather boring, run-of-the-mill murder mystery, saved from a low rating by a fairly surprising plot-twist at the end. The cutesy dialogue between Vail and the obvious love interest Kate is rather amateurish, and that is a draw-down. All in all, I would have given this only a 3, but it rises to a 5 (out of 10) because of the plot twist at the end. "
