Publisher's Summary

Virgil Jones thinks his life is back on track and he's in control of his future. But he's not.

In fact, he's about to discover he doesn't even know the meaning of the word control.

State of Control, book three of the Virgil Jones Series, shows Thomas Scott is at the top of his game.

In Shelby County, Indiana, a group of mega-farmers are about to make the deal of their lives. During a dry season that threatens to ruin their harvest, they begin to dig for irrigation water but hit a pocket of natural gas instead. A hasty deal is put on the table and the members of the Shelby County Co-op board are set to go from a Midwestern farming powerhouse to a multi-million dollar fracking operation that will ruin the land along the Flatrock River forever. Except one of the farmers doesn't like the idea. He doesn't like it at all....

Pam Donatti is still grieving the loss of her husband, Ed, after he was killed in a vicious gun battle, a battle that almost cost Virgil his own life. When the state refuses to pay Pam Donatti her husband's death benefits, the Indiana State Troopers go on strike in support of a fallen officer's family. But Pam has a secret, one that has the potential to change her, and her son's life forever....

On a quiet Sunday afternoon Virgil's former boss calls and tells him the governor wants a private meeting. Why? He has no idea. And frankly, he doesn't care. He was fired from the state's Major Crimes Unit by the governor himself eight months ago. Besides, his life is going just fine. His wife, Sandy, is pregnant with their first child, he owns two businesses - a Jamaican-themed bar called Jonesy's, and a private investigation firm he runs with his partner and brother, Murton Wheeler.

But Virgil is about to discover that time isn't as linear as it appears and events from his past are about to repeat themselves. And when they do, he'll come face to face with pure evil and forced to make the kind of choice no man should ever have to make.
