State of Deception
Book 4 of the Virgil Jones Mystery Thriller Suspense Series
PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY SAYS “NO ONE SETS UP A MYSTERY, THRILLER & SUSPENSE NOVEL LIKE THOMAS SCOTT!”
VIRGIL JONES IS ABOUT TO LEARN A LESSON THE HARD WAY. WHEN THE GROUND BENEATH YOUR FEET BEGINS TO SHIFT, IT’S NOT THE FUTURE YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT…IT’S THE PAST.
A young female student has gone missing from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Patty Doyle is a Senior with her whole life ahead of her. In the middle of wrapping up her final semester she disappears without a trace, and what begins as a missing person’s case turns into something much more, not just for Patty, but for Virgil as well…
A few months ago Virgil’s best friend and brother, Murton Wheeler killed the man responsible for viciously attacking Virgil’s wife, Sandy, and their unborn son, Wyatt. Just before Murton pulled the trigger, DHS agent Paul Gibson and the governor arrive with information for Murton. Information that could either change his life forever, or end it…
A group of home-grown terrorists have everything they need to build and detonate a dirty bomb right in the middle of the heartland. The Department of Homeland Security wants Murton to do something he thought he’d never have to do again…go deep undercover and infiltrate a criminal organization. But at what cost, and in the end, who will pay the tab?
Virgil thought the murder and mystery of Shelby County was right where it belonged…in his rear-view mirror. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ State of Deception was brilliantly conceived and written. Scott’s writing continues to evolve and entertain. His philosophical interjections make the characters familiar and real. Pure joy to read, as they all have been.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thomas Scott hits a home run again! State of Deception has got to be one of his finer works. The plot had new twists and turns, and I did not have a clue how it would end. Police procedural writing at its finest, I think I’d like to meet the author, and maybe grab a beer!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Virgil Jones Series are terrific reads. I just finished State of Deception. I read the series in just over a week. Each book leads seamlessly to the next. Mr. Scott’s writing compels the reader to become interested and invested in the story and the characters. Each book is a winner!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thomas Scott is now on top of my favorite authors! I started with book one and read all the series. Love them all! The story has you drawn in from the beginning; page turners for sure. I can’t honestly say one book is better than the last; they are all great reads! Highly recommend! Don’t miss out on this series!!!
