The Hunchback Assignments by Arthur Slade
Modo was found by Mr. Socrates when he was just a baby and has been training to become an "agent" ever since. Modo's natural appearance is deformed with a hunchback but he has the amazing ability to alter his appearance to look like anyone he wants for up to five hours at a time. When he finally gets to leave the house where he has been training Mr. Socrates dumps him on the streets on London to fend for himself and within a few months he is making a living as a detective. He finds himself in hot water however when he takes on a case that almost ends up in his death due to the mysterious Young Explorer's Society. Modo and the beautiful Octavia investigate the disappearances of orphans and Prince Albert, the zombies who are killing members of parliment, and the strange metal creature that is being made by Dr. Hyde and his friends.
