'When Bunting drew this in 1581, absolutely no one in the world could have known what the coast of Western Australia looked like...'
Nick Lawrance, an antique map dealer, is shocked to find his gallery has been burgled. However, this isn't an ordinary robbery: the thieves have ignored priceless maps and have only taken Bunting's World Map. All of a sudden, Nick is thrown into a four-hundred-year religious mystery where strange people around him will do anything for this map... even kill for it. Nick has to figure out why, before it's too late.
Thrilling and steeped in dark history, The Bunting Quest is inspired by a real-life map that displays the Australian coastline many years before its 'discovery'. Here, two compelling adventures, set hundreds of years apart, come together in this breathtaking page-turner that reveals mankind's greatest secret.
'It's written in the same vein as The Da Vinci Code, though it's more deeply imagined, pacier, and better written.' - Cameron Woodhead, Sydney Morning Herald
'Marcuson is a proficient storyteller... This intriguing novel conveys a powerful message that racial prejudice and religious bigotry breed monsters.' - Phillip Siggins, The Australian
