I thought Secret Water was the only book to have maps within the story, rather than just endpapers.

Assuming that by "within the story" you're referring to physical position in the book, rather than the map being an object that is encountered by the characters in the story, such maps seem to be the rule rather than the exception.

My copy of S&A has a map of Wild Cat Island facing the first page of text, so part of the "front matter" but not strictly part of the endpapers.

PD has a map of Crab Island in amongst the text.

CC has a map of the River Bure in amongst the text.

WD has a chart of approches to Harwich in amongst the text.

B6 has a map of the Horning/Ranworth area in amongst the text.

ML has a map of the Three Islands, supposedly found aboard the Shining Moon, in amongst the text.

PM has a map of the area round Beckfoot in amongst the text.

GN has "Mac's chart of the cove" in amongst the text.
