In 1979, the book Masquerade became an international best-seller. It was a puzzle book with no instructions or clues and gave one clever winner a very big prize. In 2011 Carlton Books re-invent this idea and bring it right up to date for the 21st century. Imagine the excitement of adventuring right around the world in search of fabulous hidden treasure. We live on a beautiful, awe-inspiring planet, and new cutting-edge technology is making it available to us in ways that previous generations could never have dreamed of The Great Global Treasure Hunt on Google Earth takes you on a fascinating quest to uncover the resting place of a marvellous treasure that could earn the solver a cool Euro 50,000.
