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

f hearing the stage-door keeper carry out Joseph's instructions as far as Hermann was concerned. Had Nobel's address been on the card all this would have been superfluous. As the address was missing, the little scheme was absolutely necessary.

Hermann stood flushed and smiling as he received the compliments of fellow comedians. Moore watched him keenly as the stage-door keeper delivered the card and the message.
