James Bennett didn’t come to the Florida Keys to find a new father. As the rebellious, serially underemployed scion of an old-money New York family, he’d spent years disappointing the one he already had. But when smooth-talking ex-televangelist John Wainwright takes an interest in him, he spurns an invitation to grow up and finally join his family’s business on Wall Street in favor of staying in Marathon to help Wainwright rebuild his church.
When James’ faith in his new mentor and his infatuation with Wainwright’s beautiful, estranged daughter lead him into a maze of deception and double-crosses, he’s left to try to find a path to redemption on his own, and he can only hope that his father will still be there to meet him on the other side.

“If you’re looking for a mesmerizing, quirky mystery — with plenty of I-didn’t-see-that-coming moments, you’ve got to read The Prophet of Marathon. It’s full of totally believable characters that you’ll either love or hate. And, the funny thing is — your opinions will likely swing wildly as the book unfolds.”
