Inside Front Flap:
Transforming his appearance and stealing secret documents from the French are 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 agent, Octavia, begin their sleuthing in New York City, then take a steamship across the North Atlantic. When something strikes their ship and Modo falls overboard, he uncovers an astounding secret in the depths of the ocean.

The Dark Deeps, the second book in Arthur Slade's Hunchback Assignments series, is set in a fascinating Victorian Steampunk 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.
