Rory Justice leads a relatively normal life as a conservative, 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 an Islamic State mafia to destroy the city with an underground nuclear bomb. Instead, Rory tries to run from his dad s request by jumping onto a cruise ship, only to find himself entangled in a series of horrific misfortunes that leave him with little choice but to try to help save this city of sin. A modern-day story based on the Bible s Book of Jonah, The Runaway Prophet reminds us that we can try to run from God s call but we can t hide, and that sometimes, by rescuing other people, God rescues us in the process."
