Masterful bestselling novelist Nelson DeMille recreates one of his earliest works, a powerful, suspenseful adventure featuring four desperate people on an unholy search for the Holy Grail.

From the dusty archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, an unlikely crew of four begins a deadly search for the Holy Grail.

Two reporters, a devastatingly beautiful photographer, and a mercenary soldier are caught in the centre of an Ethiopian civil war. When they save a wounded prisoner who has escaped from a bombed out prison, they hear the most amazing account of the location of Christ's cup from the Last Supper. Thus begins their Quest - a deadly adventure that pits them against murderous tribesmen, assassins, fanatical Coptic monks, and ultimately, against themselves.

In the best Nelson DeMille tradition, The Quest takes readers on a heart-pounding, exciting ride where good ultimately triumphs - but at a steep price.

    Comments about The Quest:

    Having read all of De Milles other works I expected this to have the usual twists and turns but towards the end I found I had it all sussed and was tempted to simply skip forward. Now knowing it was his first book it all makes sense as we all benefit from experience.
