The counter-intelligence organization that Melville lobbied the Government to create is one of the world’s leading intelligence agencies. He had run Scotland Yard’s Special Branch & his career had  included the Jack the Ripper investigations, Irish Republican terrorism, assassination attempts on Queen Victoria & anarchist bomb plots. Now, the story of his Secret Service career -- including the breaking of German spy rings prior to the outbreak of World War I -- can finally be told. Photos.
