State of Anger
Book 1 of the Virgil Jones Mystery Thriller Series
“THIS SERIES GRABS YOU WITH BOOK ONE AND DOESN’T LET GO!”–WALL STREET JOURNAL
In State of Anger, Detective Virgil Jones, leader of the Major Crimes Unit tackles the hard cases. ‘The good stuff’ his boss likes to call it. Except there’s nothing good about his latest case. Nothing at all. A team of serial snipers are on the loose…their civilian victims chosen at random. Or are they?
With no witnesses and very little evidence, the Major Crimes Unit is ordered to find and stop the killers by any means necessary. Except when Virgil’s long-lost adopted brother, a convicted felon named Murton Wheeler comes back to town, in trouble and on the run, Virgil knows it’s more than just coincidence. He can’t prove it…in fact, he’s not even sure he wants to.
As the bodies continue to mount, Virgil finds himself running out of options, knowing he has to choose where his true loyalties lie…with the people he’s sworn to protect, or to the brother that left him behind when he needed him the most.
But in the end Virgil discovers he never really had a choice, because the final bullet reveals a truth that will change his life forever.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book and series is better than most “traditional” books. The author put together a well written, logical, believable storyline that most importantly for me was not predictable as most other “thrillers” I have read. I did not have any idea how the story would end which is the exception to the rule. This book reminds me a lot of Nelson DeMille–just as well written and smattered with the same style of humor and sarcasm at times. Great read and I highly recommend it!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ There are two types of fictional writers – the great story tellers, and the wordsmiths who give readers something to think about. Mr. Scott is both. With enough twists and turns to keep the plot interesting and moving along to some of the more profound observations of human nature, this read caught me and would not let me go. I highly recommend this series to anyone that loves good thrillers as well as mysteries. Kudos!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I bought this book and didn’t read it for a while. BIG MISTAKE!!! Virgil is not just different in a good way but the story moves quickly and makes you eager for more. Halfway through I stopped and bought the rest of the series. Enjoy…I know you will!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thomas Scott Rocks!! Thomas Scott is an excellent author, and I can’t wait for the next Virgil Jones book. This was one of the best books I have read in a long time, and from page 1 or 2 I was hooked. Non stop action, very believable characters, and I was completely engrossed from the start. I hated to finish it so fast, but I could not put it down. I stumbled across this on Amazon looking for a new book after reading the latest Lee Child novel, and was I in for a fantastic ride on this one. Excellent book Mr Scott, thank you so much for the entertainment!
