The Brick Layer by Noah Boyd

This book grabs your attention and runs off into the night without you if you don't keep up!

The Brick Layer is no ordinary guy working with mortar. He was previously in the FBI and last served as a contract investigator, but he didn't take commands well, and often "colored outside the lines". As a result, he left the FBI and went into brick work.

However, as is usual, when a big case comes up that they don't want the public to know about, they invite him back to work again - on his own terms.

It's a face paced, hard hitting story with some mean edges. But the story draws you in and holds you.

It's well written, the characters are bigger than life, and I highly recommend this book. I'm sure there will be more adventures with the Brick Layer. After all, he doesn't follow the rules...

If you'd like my ARC of this book, please leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info NOSPAM (take the spaces and NOSPAM out) and tell me why you'd like to read it. I'll pick a lucky winner in about a week.

This one definitely sounds like a good read and a new author for me. As you know, I'm always looking for those. Plus, I like the idea he's former FBI.

And Jo, your reviews are a delight to read!
