Newton Moore is one of the toughest and most resourceful agents of the "Secret Service Fund," -- a branch of the British War Office, headed by the secretive Sir George Morley. As one of the best agents, Moore is given the hardest cases to crack, and is expected to go to any length necessary to find a solution.

Show Excerpt
