While on an assignment in Queensland, Australia, to discover the truth behind a powerful weapon known as the God Face, Modo, a teenaged, shape-changing hunchback living in Victorian London, battles the evil machinations of the Clockwork Guild and makes an astounding discovery--one that hinges on Modo's true appearance.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Fourteen months earlier, Alexander King, adventurer and explorer, was clinging to sheer rock on the lowest peak of Mount Kilimanjaro when his partner casually mentioned the God Face.

Inside Front Flap:
"The west at your spine, the face divine... The face it waits, it waits, it waits!"

Modo, a brilliant young secret agent, hears these rantings by prisoner 376 at Bedlam, the notorious London asylum. The prisoner has seen the mysterious God Face, an artifact rumored to be a powerful weapon but impossible to possess. Everyone who has looked upon it has gone mad.

At just fourteen, Modo is a spy for Britain's Permanent Association. His boss, Mr. Socrates, sets out for the Australian rain forest, accompanied by his faithful servant, Tharpa - and by Modo and his fellow agent Octavia. Their goal: find the God Face and claim it for the British Empire. But hot on their trail is the evil Clockwork Guild, with vicious new weapons.

Featuring a terrifying airship battle, an escape from forest tribes, and an astounding discovery - one that hinges on Modo's true appearance - the third book in this award-winning series will enthrall readers of the Hunchback Assignments once again.
