Agent X is a continued saga of "The Bricklayer"...a rather unorthodox part time FBI agent and part time bricklayer. Steve Vail, the bricklayer, has no love of doing anything by the book or authority. He does what needs to be done, and gets results...much to the dismay of the criminals in his path, many of whom end up dead! Kate Bannon is Vail's on again, off again love interest. Also and FBI agent, she is more by the book and Vail's methods keep a barrier between them. It is a well written novel and I look forward to more similar stories in the future. I'd recommend this novel to anyone interested in crime, action-thrillers genre.
