149 B.C.- Escaping just ahead of the invading Roman legions, a Carthaginian soldier carries an ancient secret to places unknown.
1925- Percy Fawcett launches his final expedition into the Amazon, but what is his true objective?
Dane Maddock is back. Deep in the Amazon, a university group encounters a horror beyond their darkest nightmares and vanishes without a trace. Called upon to undertake a daring rescue mission, Dane and Bones must trace the true path of Percy Fawcett's final expedition, but the secret that lies at the end of the search might be even deadlier than the enemies who seek it. From the streets of London, to remote islands in the Atlantic, to the deadly jungles of the Amazon, Dane and Bones must penetrate a secret lost to history, on their deadliest Quest.


What the Critics Say

"Dane and Bones are back! Packed solid with action and witty dialogue, this rousing adventure takes a fresh look at one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century, David Wood delivers again with QUEST." (Sean Ellis, author of Into the Black and Dark Trinity Ascendant)
"The escapades of Wood's serial character Dane Maddock continue in high style with QUEST, an all-out blitzkrieg of a globe-trotting mystery-adventure that breaks from the action just long enough for a couple of laughs." (Rick Chesler, author of kiDNApped and Wired Kingdom)
"Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. From the accessible writing to the wide-ranging plot to the main characters who don't give up no matter how long the odds, Wood's latest book, Quest, is a tremendous classic adventure. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." (Edward G. Talbot, author of 2010: The Fifth World)

Amazing action, story and narration.

If you could sum up Quest: A Dane Maddock Adventure in three words, what would they be?


What was one of the most memorable moments of Quest: A Dane Maddock Adventure?

I loved this book from start to finish. It's my first Dane Maddock adventure and obviously it's not book one but you don't need to read the rest to enjoy it. It was brilliant. In fact I'm going to have to get the rest I enjoyed it so much.
If I get into memorable moments I will ruin the story, so to be deliberately vague. I liked it when they got to the place they were looking for and got the revelations around their destination.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I loved the way they started the book which is sort of a two pronged start of ancient tim s then back to modern day. Equally the way they end on finding their destination is brilliant as is the journey to get there.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It's more action than drama but I did like it when they were piecing the clues together and Bones proposes. Laugh out loud moment that was very, very funny. Also the scene with the explorers descendent was a nice scene. We have a great story and a brilliant selection of characters. It's a really great book.
