‘The Secret Agent’ is woven around an attack on the Greenwich Observatory in 1894, masterminded by Verloc, a Russian spy working for the police while ostensibly a member of an anarchist group in Soho. His masters instruct him to discredit the anarchists in a humiliating fashion, but when his evil plan goes horribly awry, Verlac must deal with the repercussions of his actions.
