Boyd introduced Vail in “The Bricklayer.” Vail, a discontented former FBI representative who elite a building trade to a bureau’s red tape, concluded to assistance his aged employer if he answered usually to a executive and had no interference.
Agent X is the 2nd book in a series with Steve Vail as the hero. He is a former spook that left the FBI because he could not follow orders or the law. However, he is occasionally called upon to resolve sticky issues because he is able to get results. Vail is an interesting character. It is difficult to understand how his mind operates so his actions create suspense.
Boyd has written a fine, fast paced and intriguing suspense that will keep you guessing. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy fast-paced adventure. This is an exciting read and is hard to put down. It is action and adventure at its finest, and is one thrilling ride.
