Description

"Vail is in the mold of Lee Child's Jack Reacher and Robert Crais's Joe Pike....This guy has movie written all over him."
--Chicago Sun-Times



"Fans of Sam Spade and Jack Reacher will feel right at home with this new tough guy."
--Boston Globe



"We have a new American hero in Steve Vail."

--Patricia Cornwell



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. A former FBI agent himself, author Boyd pulls out all the stops in Agent X--as "the Bricklayer" hunts down an elusive Russian spy in a taut and authentic thriller that rivals the very best of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Robert Ludlum.

Back cover copy

An officer at the Russian embassy--a man known as Calculus--has approached the FBI offering to sell a list of Americans who are giving confidential information to the Russian SVR. But before a deal can be made, Calculus is recalled to Moscow, and the Bureau fears the Russians will be hunting down and killing the traitors unless the FBI can find them first.

FBI agent-turned-bricklayer Steve Vail thought he was done with the agency, but the Bureau has another unsolvable problem, and it has Vail's name written all over it. Finding the hidden turncoats, however, won't be easy--in fact, it could be downright deadly. And even with the help of FBI Assistant Director Kate Bannon, the Bricklayer's going to have to come up with a few new tricks of his own if he hopes to survive.

Agent X a white-knuckled thrill ride that crackles with an electric authenticity only a writer who's a real-life FBI veteran can provide.
