A Note from John about Paul Lindsay (aka Noah Boyd)

In the fall of 2011 I was saddened by the death of Paul Lindsay, the FBI agent who went on to write a series of successful thrillers. Paul was a terrific writer who was awarded two Purple Hearts and the Silver Star for bravery in Viet Nam. After the war, he joined the FBI and worked for 20 years. It was towards the end of his time with the bureau that he wrote his first novel.

Paul_LindsayAfter a half dozen thrillers written under his own name, in 2011 he adopted the pseudonym Noah Boyd with the release of THE BRICKLAYER. In that same year Millennium Films has acquired the rights to The Bricklayer, and attached Gerard Butler to star as a rogue former agent Steve Vail.

I was really impressed with this series – it had great promise. Unfortunately, it appears to have been lost after just two books. Fans of Mitch Rapp (Vince Flynn) or Jack Reacher (Lee Child) will really enjoy these books.

I just picked up a few UK trade papers of THE BRICKLAYER, and you can have one for just six bucks. I promise that you will find this story worth your time.
