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)

Indiana Jones Type of Adventure

This was a really good book with everything that we all loved from the Indiana Jones adventures. History, action, adventure, and mystery all rolled up into one book.
I read this without having read the first two Dane Maddock books, but I didn't feel lost at any point. There are a few references to the first two books, including the relationship between the two main characters, but the story was able to stand alone without needing the detailed descriptions of previous events.

Dane is called to assist an old friend when her significant other goes missing. Not only did he disappear under mysterious circumstances, but he left behind clues that may solve a centuries old mystery involving a lost city and a powerful artifact. However, powerful people will stop at nothing to solve this puzzle before they do...

The narration was solid, well-performed, and had the right tone and pace.

After listening to this book, I will almost certainly go back and listen to the first two AND continue with the rest of the series. Five stars all around!

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
