The Curious Clues
by David Gorman

WHEN SETH AND JULIA are approached by a secretive man and asked to solve a decades-old scavenger hunt, they accept. But they’re not the only detectives the man has recruited for this Waldameer mystery.

Can Seth and Julia find the treasure before the team of cheaters? Who is the mystery man, and why does he always wear a disguise?

The latest Waldameer mystery sends Seth, Julia, Bek, and Semira on a puzzling race as they compete to solve the curious clues!
