Mystery On The Moors By Geoffrey Trease. 1941 reprint of the first edition published in 1937. Young Detective Series.

Mystery-lovers of all ages will enjoy this book which is not merely an absorbing story, but can be played as a game. Two rival parties of young hikers are racing one another to solve a series of ten clues. The trail winds in and out of the wild Peak country of Derbyshire, and leads the amateur detectives into a number of humorous  - and sometimes serious - situations. With the aid of a little general knowledge and map-reading, the reader can take an active part, solving each clue on his/her own account before reading on to the next.
