International bestselling author Nelson DeMille presents a complete reinvention of his classic thriller of 1975 about the hunt for the Holy Grail, published for the first time in the UK.
Mankind's greatest mystery lies in wait...
Civil war rages in Ethiopia. A priest waits to die in a parched prison cell; he has not seen daylight for four decades. But then a mortar shell hits the compound, and the prisoner and his secret are free.
Two reporters and a beautiful photographer save this wounded man, who tells them something too incredible to believe: the location of the Holy Grail. Thus begins an impossible quest that will pit them against murderous tribes, deadly assassins, fanatical monks, and ultimately, themselves.
THE QUEST is a breakneck search for an ancient legend amid a dangerous jungle war - and no one's coming out unscathed.
