Paul Lindsay, the FBI agent who went on to write a series of successful thrillers both under his own name and using the pseudonym Noah Boyd, has died at the age of 68. He had been suffering from cancer.

During the Vietnam War, Lindsay was awarded two Purple Hearts and the Silver for bravery. After the war, he joined the FBI and worked for 20 years in the Detroit office. It was towards the end of his time with the bureau that he wrote his first novel, and he retired from the FBI in 1993.

Under his own name and also as Noah Boyd, Paul Lindsay wrote 7 books. It was recently announced that one of them, The Bricklayer, has been picked up by Millennium Films and will be filmed, starring Gerard Butler in the lead role.
