Publisher Comments:

A fantastic Steampunk adventure in the deeps

Transforming his appearance and stealing secret documents from the French is all in a day's work for fourteen-year-old Modo, a British secret agent. But his latest mission--to uncover the underwater mystery of something called the Ictineo--seems impossible. There are rumors of a sea monster and a fish as big as a ship. French spies are after it, and Mr. Socrates, Modo's master, wants to find it first. Modo and his fellow secret agent, Octavia, begin their mission in New York City, then take a steamship across the North Atlantic. During the voyage, Modo uncovers an astounding secret.

The Dark Deeps, the second book in Arthur Slade's Hunchback Assignments series, is set in a fascinating Steampunk Victorian world. Modo's underwater adventures and his encounters with the young French spy Colette Brunet, the fearless Captain Monturiol, and the dreaded Clockwork Guild guarantee a gripping read filled with danger, suspense, and brilliant inventions.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Modo, a shape-changing hunchback, and Octavia take on another mission as secret agents for the Permanent Association in Victorian London, investigating the cause behind the sinking of several ships in the same place.

Synopsis:

The latest mission for 14-year-old English spy Modo is to uncover the underwater mystery of a sea monste. Modo and his partner, Olivia, set out, but when their ship is struck and Modo falls overboard, he discovers something astounding.
