The Bricklayer

The Bricklayer (Book) ~ Noah Boyd (Author) Cover Art

Pulled this from my old town's library Reader's Choice options from a couple turns ago. It was a nice, fast, decently action based book. The main character is engaging, and there are some great scenes that have you on the edge of your seat. I also was pleasantly surprised with the way the story flowed and progressed. The author definitely mixed things up, in a positive way.


A mysterious organization calling itself the Rubaco Pentad is blackmailing the FBI. If the Pentad’s demands for money are not met, high-profile victims will die. Each demand is bigger than the last, and the drop-off instructions are lethally complicated—it’s almost as if the Pentad wants the FBI to fail. But when an agent disappears with the cash he’s carrying, he needs to be found, and fast. The FBI pins its hopes on former agent Steve Vail, who quit rather than compromise his rigid personal code and is now working as a bricklayer.

If you're looking for a quick, somewhat shallow, yet with enough twists to keep it interesting, kind of action novel, then this one will do nicely. Liked.
