State of Anger: Book 1 in the Virgil Jones Mystery Series
Publisher’s Weekly says “Thomas Scott’s writing is thrilling and frantic!”
Crime fiction at its finest…a Thriller filled with Mystery, Suspense, Humor and a dash of romance!
STATE OF ANGER: Book 1 of the Virgil Jones State Series is a mystery, thriller and suspense novel centered on the questions that lurk within the darkened corner of every broken heart. If someone you love were taken from you, to what lengths would you go for revenge? How long would you plan? How long would you wait?
Detective Virgil Jones is about to find out. As a political appointee and leader of the Indiana State Police Major Crimes Unit, Virgil tackles only the toughest cases in the state, and the one he faces this time has the city of Indianapolis on edge, near the brink of panic. When a team of serial snipers begin terrorizing the city, their first two victims are murdered right in front of the governor’s mansion.
With no witnesses and very little evidence, it is up to Virgil Jones and his team to find out who is responsible for the killings. But Virgil has his own problems, both personal and professional. Among them, a backlog of cases that require his attention, the sudden reappearance of his long lost friend, convicted felon Murton Wheeler, and he is in love with Sandy Small, one of the investigators in his unit. As Virgil and his team follow the killer’s trail, the clues they uncover begin to paint a portrait of betrayal, deceit, bloodlust, and greed, and in the midst of it all, Virgil and Sandy make a personal discovery so profound it could change their lives forever.
STATE OF ANGER is a story of life, love, murder and mystery; one that examines the depths of human emotion and the dark places they often lead us all.

Terrific book! One of the best novels I’ve read recently. It’s an exquisitely plotted mystery, a cop procedural, a thriller, and a love story. It’s also a book about family and forgiveness, and one man’s spiritual journey. I can’t wait to read the next Virgil Jones book. Jillian Coleman Wheeler
