Book Description

Nov. 11 2008
Fact collides with fiction in Will Adams second pulse-pounding adventure featuring the enigmatic Daniel Knox - hero of The Alexander Cipher Fact collides with fiction in Will Adams second pulse-pounding adventure featuring the enigmatic Daniel Knox. On the trail of a Dead Sea Scroll, Knox stumbles across an ancient temple being surreptitiously excavated by evangelical Christians outside Alexandria. A chase ends in tragedy with the death of Alexandria's senior archaeologist, and Knox the chief suspect. Meanwhile, Knox's partner Gaille Bonnard is baby-sitting a television crew around the ancient city of Amarna, home of the multiple mysteries of Pharaoh Akhenaten. Kidnapped by rogue soldiers, her time fast running out, she sends Knox a message hidden in a hostage video, pleading with him to come to her rescue. But Knox has problems of his own, under arrest on suspicion of murder, locked in a police cell half a country away. And the only way for him to find and save her is to crack one of the great unsolved mysteries of the ancient world.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book Sept. 1 2009
By Brenda Pink TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The Exodus Quest outlines the story of the race between an archeologist and a group of evangelical Christians to find evidence of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. The hero of the story, Daniel Knox, endures attempts to kill him, framing for the murder of an Alexandrian archeologist and the kidnapping of his partner. In order to set things right he must solve the puzzle of the Pharoh Akhenaten.

This book has lots of suspense, lots of intrigue and a great storyline. My only complaint with it was the multitudes of Egyptian names. Yes, I know that the story takes place in Egypt, however, the author might have simplified things by not delving into the multiple names of each historical character. Perhaps if I were an egyptologist, I'd have been able to keep it straight. Having said that, I still very much enjoyed reading the book and would like to check out more by this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misled by Amazon May 16 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once I've read a single book by an author, I tend to run through most/all of the author's works. "The Exodus Quest" was originally published under the title "The Moses Quest". I ordered both, not knowing that they were the same novel.

The previous reviewer summarised the plot well but please don't make the error that I did and order both "The Exodus Quest" and "The Moses Quest".

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story...but Nov. 20 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Will Adams book and I was quite disappointed. The story was way too predictable. Interesting concepts - albeit far fetched. I would not recommend this book even for reading at the Beach

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun! Jan. 27 2010
By Bobby Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you are looking for a fun read chocked full of ancient Egyptian history this mix of adventure and romance is a rollicking good time. The second book to feature archeologist and adventurer Daniel Knox and his partner Gaille Bonnard by Will Adams is that rare instance where what we read between the binding actually lives up to the fun promised on the cover. When Egytologist Knox comes across a lid being offered in an Alexandrian marketplace it triggers something at the back of his mind which leads to the Dead Sea Scrolls and the mystery surrounding not only the Exodus but so much more it would not be fair to reveal too much here and spoil your fun.

There are plenty of good guys and bad guys, and enough historical proof and speculation to please and enthrall even the layman. Soon Knox finds himself on the run from a bad Egytian Tourist cop named Khaled and a twisted preacher protecting an ancient dig. An Egyptian policeman named Naguib whose wife and child act as his conscience when a young girl's body is found at a dig will try to discover what's going on before it is too late for both Knox, and his love Gaille, who has been abducted. Khaled's character has echos of those 1930's films of this type of adventure, and though set very much in the present, the book also has this feel.

You'll have to read this crackling adventure to discover how Akhenaten, Moses, Nefertiti, Adam and Eve, and a hoax which might have an unexpected basis in truth all play out in an Egypt full of ancient secrets. Knox's pal Augustin is on hand, and might find a romance of his own, while Knox realizes finally that his feelings for his mentor's daughter are much deeper than he'd been aware. There is both excitement and danger here, and just the right dash of romance mixed in to the pot, making this a wildly entertaining book which will have you waiting on the next one. A fun series and a quick read to relax with at home on the balcony or at the beach. Fun stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Desert Adventure! April 13 2010
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Exodus Quest is an Indian Jones-type adventure for the New Millennium!
I love Will Adams' style of writing, with short sections usually ending in a cliff-hanger, and each section rolling into what is happening in another locale with the other characters. One would think that it would be easy to find a place to stop in such a book, because there's always a good break, but it made me keep reading because I wanted to know how the storyline that had just had a break would play out. This one kept me up well into the night! I also liked all of the ancient Egyptian and Jewish history in the book, comparisons of stories from different mythological traditions, and reading about the objects of daily life that were being excavated and how they might have been used.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong ancient historical April 30 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
In Alexandria, Egypt Archeologist Daniel Knox walks in a local market place when he notices what appears to be an ancient earthenware bowl. The teenage vendor insists the artifact was given to him by his friend Daniel Knox and once belonged to Alexander the Great. He is amused by the hawker as everyone claims to be his buddy since The Alexander Cipher case. The lad sets prices based on pure supply and demand of how much he perceives the customer can afford, but refuses to reveal where it was found.

Knox visits his friend Omar Tawfiq who lets him browse through his database. He finds a picture of it, but Omar explains it is not a bowl from Ancient Egypt; instead it is a storage jar lid from Qumran, home of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Soon that lead takes the excited Knox to a dig led by Reverend Ernest Peterson and his team of theological students who seek a portrait of Christ that Peterson plans to keep. As a murder of a native archeologist occurs, corrupt cops blame Knox while the beleaguered Egyptologist learns in horror from his cell that his partner Gaille Bonnard was abducted near the ruins of Amarna, several hundred miles away.

With a strong ancient historical base, the latest Knox antiquities thriller is a fast-paced over the top of the Sphinx entertaining tale. Readers will enjoy the hero's hyperactive adventures in which he is a guest of the state, but needs to be in three other places at the same time. First he must rescue himself by proving his innocence, which is difficult to do when you're in a cell; so that he can second rescue Gaille; and third rescue the artifacts being devastated unmercifully by the Reverend. No caffeine for Knox.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, characters a bit bland June 16 2010
By Serene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a thriller set in Egypt and involving a series of unusual murders and the discovery of an archaeological dig which could change the course of history. I found the story appealing if at times a bit bland. The main character, Daniel is your average do-gooder. No flaws, but no particular interesting either. Daniel loves a woman named Gail (I listened to the story so I do not know if this is how her name is spelled); who apparently believed Daniel was her father's lover. This caused a rift between them a while back, but now they are over it and are falling in love. Gail is described as beautiful and is also somewhat generic and bland.

The villains of the piece is a crazed fundamentalist preacher who is trying to hide the discovery of the site because he is afraid that people will see the scandalous images of Christ. While I enjoyed the story, I didn't find the revelations or the archaeological elements to be that riveting. Akhenaton is a cool enough character as it is without making him Adam. Just discovering a tomb or undiscovered artifact would be interesting enough. Plus turning the villain into a crazed killer just was a bit too convenient.

Overall, this was a nice action orientatd story, but I would like to see Gail and Daniel less sterotypical. I didn't really see any romantic tension between them (there was more interest between Gail an Dainel's Semi-stalker friend), and frankly I was bored with Gail in particular who filled the role of damsel in distress.
