Virgil’s wife, Sandy, the lieutenant governor of the State of Indiana is working with the governor and Senator Michael Wright to pass legislation that has the potential to change the voting system, not only in their state, but all across the country. But not everyone wants the vote to pass. In fact, there are people who will do anything to ensure that it doesn’t…
Rick Said, owner of the sonic drilling units that made Virgil and Sandy wealthy has a problem. The sonic drill units operate in part via artificial intelligence, something Said’s engineers know nothing about. And when the company Said contracted with for the AI technology decides to discontinue their relationship, Said asks Virgil to find out why…
But Virgil has something that takes priority over Said’s request. Senator Wright’s son, Garrett, has been murdered. Was the murder a message to the senator to back away from the bill, or something else entirely? As Virgil and the rest of the Major Crimes Unit begin to look into Wright’s death, they not only discover a twisted web of lies and deceit, they find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a killer.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Virgil Jones series is a MUST READ series for anyone who likes action, intrigue and character development. In every one of these “can’t put it down” novels I have been on the edge of my chair often at one moment and choking back tears from the heroic and loving/lovable characters. I rank Thomas Scott up their with my favorite authors: CJ Box. David Baldacci, James Lee Burke, Harlan Coben, Craig Johnson, Steve Berry, etc. If you have never read one of these books, I challenge you to try to stop with just one. You won’t be able to do it! I guarantee it!!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Best series I’ve ever read! Thomas Scott has put together a great cast of characters and his books are almost impossible to put down. They are funny, exciting and downright tearful at times. If you haven’t read any of the Virgil Jones series yet get started now. I’m moving on the next one!! Please keep writing this series so I know I have a great book to look forward to.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow, what a ride this one was! Friendships, family, action, well developed story and integration of characters. What else can I say but to tell you this is a must read!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Thank you Mr. Scott, please keep them coming!!!!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thomas Scott is a really talented author, who makes his stories as believable as real life. Jonesey is one oddball square-in-a-round hold guy, who just happens to be an incredible investigator. He’s a pretty damn good person, too. This story was rich in both theme, and emotional content. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and the ending still turned out to be totally different than I expected.
