"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)
Didn't read the priint version
The plot was extremely interesting.
All the characters were well done.
I use audio books during my frequent long drives
I thought it was neat that Doyle's The Lost World was part of the clue pattern, but I enjoyed most how the story progressed, building upon clues and findings that led to the lost city and its secrets.
Dane Maddock--he (Kafer) has the attitude and tone right on target.
Very much worth the listen.
It'd be okay to pick this one up even if you've not listened to any of the previous novels in the series. Even though references are made to previous adventures, they're not vital to know and are easily followed/understood within the context of the current novel (Quest), so it stands alone well.
Very good. Held my interest to the very end. Lot of great action and historical data mixed in with fun dialog.I enjoyed this story and would like to read the rest of the series. It was a great adventure, minimal amounts of romance and lots of action.
This was a really fun story, I couldn't stop listening until it had finished. As is usual for the Dane Maddock Adventures it is full of action and mystery. Great characters and good writing. A definite recommendation. Kafer does such a good job of bringing the characters to life.

"Quest" is escapism. Think Indiana Jones, Think Clive Cussler. It's Good Pulp escapism. It fares well in that category.
Dane and Bones the main characters of the audio book. They are the eye of the hurricane. All the action involves them.
I rate voice work on audio books from the merits of how the story flows and how well a narrator brings my visualization of characters to it. Jeffrey Kafer is very good, easy to listen to, a wide range of character voices.
Not to any wide extent. I was entertained. So, it succeeded on the most important level.
Thank you for the opportunity to review "Quest"!
