Praise for the Dane Maddock Adventures:

"Freedom rocks! David Wood and Sean Sweeney serve up a great story of how it all began. Dane and Bones are in perfect form as they unravel a devilishly clever historical mystery that traces back to the early days of the nation." (Sean Ellis, author of Fortune Favors)

"David Wood has done it again. Quest takes you on an expedition that leads down a trail of adventure and thrills. David Wood has honed his craft and Quest is proof of his efforts!" (David L. Golemon, Author of Legacy and The Supernaturals)

"Ancient cave paintings? Cities of gold? Secret scrolls? Sign me up! A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" (Robert Masello, author of The Medusa Amulet)

"A non-stop thrill ride triple threat - smart, funny and mysterious!" (Jeremy Robinson, author of Instinct and Threshold)

"Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. 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)

"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)

"David Wood delivers again in Buccaneer with a fast-paced romp, complete with sunken treasure maps, hidden Templar churches and a secret organization that wants to resurrect an ancient kingdom. Fantastic!" (J.F. Penn, author of the ARKANE thrillers)

"David Wood captures all the adventure, twists and surprises, camaraderie, and treasure you could hope for in an action series." (Kane Gilmour, Author of Resurrect and co-author of Ragnarok)
