1980s book with hidden treasure if you solved the mystery inside?

I'm struggling to remember the title of a book I read in the 1980s, which had a real-world twist: hidden within the narrative was the location of a spot in the USA where some sort of treasure or reward money was located.

The only images I can come up with -- based on fuzzy memories of the book's title and/or cover -- would be: necklace, silver, moon, locket. And for some reason: rabbit.
The prize was somehow thematically linked with the book's content - that is to say, I think the plot involved some hidden treasure.
Any ideas? My memory was jogged by Everything is Terrible's recent post
about a low-budget VHS noir with the same hook, but this book was much classier. If it helps, by the time I read the book (mid 80s?), the mystery had been solved and the prize located and dug up. Thanks!
