    So Robert B. Parker's gone and there goes three books a year that you counted on. Allow me to introduce to you Noah Boyd, the psuedonym of a retired FBI agent whose first book - and first in a new series - is a winner. The Bricklayer is the tale of a serial killer targeting FBI agents and the brass decides they need someone outside the Bureau on the case. They recruit Steve Vail, an ex-agent turned bricklayer, who left the agency for his insubordination but was always a stellar preformer in solving cases. The yarn is nicely plotted and believeable. There are a couple of jarring narrative errors but it is a winner Wouldn't it be nice if the publishing world got some stimulus money and hired some editors or even some better proofreadres? A man can dream, can't he?The book is out in a $24.00 hardcover from Morrow.Terry Sanford
