Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

A fast, fun adventure right up to the end

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

Rugged<br/>Intriguing<br/>Action

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

Dane Maddock--he (Kafer) has the attitude and tone right on target.

Any additional comments?

Very much worth the listen. <br/><br/>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.

Any additional comments?

I like it when the whole group is more involved in the story. I enjoy listening to Maddock and Bones adventures. The narrator has done another good job in telling this story. I received this audobook for free from Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

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.<br/>

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.

Awesome Action Adventure

This was awesome listening. I've never read any other books in this series and thankfully I didn't need to to fully enjoy this one. There was so much action and it was one of those stories that you don't want to stop. The antics of Maddock and BoneBreak made me think of the Movie Sahara, but this story had its own unique flare and wonderfulness. I hope to read more in the series and follow along on the guys adventures especially if Jeffrey Kafer continues to entrance me into this wonderful adventure.

A trip into the amazon, another day at the office!

Dane and Bones are asked to help an old friend track down her boyfriend who has gone missing in the amazon. As they retrace the steps of Percy Fawcett's final expedition, they encounter a lost civilisation and must prevent the release of a deadly lost secret.

Jeffrey Kaffer as usual does a good job bring the Dane and Bones world to life.

Amazing action, story and narration.

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

Action<br/>Adventure<br/>Cool!

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. <br/>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.
