Overview

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.

"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, THE SUPERNATURALS, AND EVENT

"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 2012: The Fifth World

"A non-stop thrill ride triple threat- smart, funny and mysterious." Jeremy Robinson, author of Threshold

Quest is the third in the David Maddock Adventures series written by David Wood. Dane and Bones are off on another adventure. Dane is asked by Kaylin Maxwell (from Dourado) to help find her fiancé, Thomas. He has gone off on a trek through the Amazon looking for Percy Fawcett’s path and has not made it back, just as Fawcett didn’t. Dane, while still dating Jade (from Cibola) still has an attraction to Kaylin and agrees to help. Especially after the bad guys show themselves to be very bad. Thomas received funding from ScanoGen. ScanoGenis looking for something more than Thomas is. Dane and his group find themselves running into ScanoGen goons while researching Thomas’ clue regarding where he was heading. They find themselves one step behind ScanoGen all the way into the Amazon. However, they manage to get ahead of ScanoGen and make it to Thomas and the prize first. I’m not giving it away here. You must read the book. This is a great adventure story that introduced me to Percy Fawcett (yes, I looked him up to see if he was real and who he was). It also introduces a theory about a lost Amazon tribe. An easy read with Dane and Bones being their wonderful selves, and their companions and crew rounding out a great cast of characters. You will find it very interesting. It’s a great story that young adults will enjoy too.
