Publisher's Summary

Rory Justice leads a relatively normal life as a conservative, divorced, middle-aged ad agency account executive. He doesn’t like to rock the boat, but that’s just what happens when his retired FBI agent father, on his deathbed, asks Rory to hand-deliver a sealed letter to the Las Vegas sheriff’s department. The letter details plans by a new Islamic State mafia running the casinos to destroy the city with an underground nuclear bomb. 

Instead of delivering the letter warning Vegas of its impending doom, Rory tries to run. He mails the letter and jumps onto a cruise ship, only to find himself entangled in a series of horrific misfortunes. Rory is eventually brought back to Vegas, where he ends up helping FBI and police investigators who have 40 days to uproot the mafia and the bomb they’ve planted before it destroys Sin City. In the process, he finds himself confronting the very lowlives he abhors - prostitutes, gamblers, drug addicts, and thugs - and falls in love with police lieutenant Susan McAfree, a tough yet vulnerable officer on his team. But can this newfound love outweigh the hate he feels for the sinners she lives among and works to save? 

Full of intrigue, suspense, and a little romance, The Runaway Prophet delivers the message that you can try to run from God’s call, but you can’t hide and that sometimes, by rescuing other people, God rescues you in the process.

A great read

The Runaway Prophet. .
A great storyline though the solving of the mystery was done a little simply. It has strong characters.
It is a good read and throughly entertaining.
Highly recommend this audiobook.

Redemption

The Runaway Prophet
: Michele Chynoweth

This is a modern re-telling of the Old Testament story of Jonah and the whale. A man tries to avoid doing what he is called to do. After time and adventures he finds redemption. A different kind of Christian fiction.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Holly Holt.

Redemption and suspense

I very much enjoyed this story! Michele Chynoweth is a new author to me and she did a great job bringing this story to life with lots of intrigue and a little romance to keep the high stakes up! Holly Holt does a superb job narrating this story! I love that this is a good and modern retelling of Jonah and the Whale. I didn't see how until I read the story! Definitely a book I recommend!
