From the dusty archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, a motley crew of four begin a deadly search for the Holy Grail. Two reporters, a cameraman and a mercenary soldier are caught in the center of an Ethiopian civil war. When they save a wounded prisoner who escapes 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 DeMille tradition, 'The Quest' takes the reader on a heart-pounding, exciting ride where good ultimately triumphs - but at a steep price.
