All twelve episodes from the TV espionage series set in the early years of the 20th century. In 'An Affair With a Married Woman' international spy Sidney Reilly (Sam Neill) creates a scandal during a mission in the Caucasus. 'Prelude to War' sees Reilly leak vital information about the Russian military to the Japanese. 'The Visiting Fireman' has Reilly attempt to obtain some secret blueprints from a German armaments factory. 'Anna' finds the Ace of Spies taking on the wealthy Rothschilds in a bid for Persian oil concessions. In 'Dreadnoughts and Crosses' the Czar invites applications for the contract to replace the Russian fleet, a prospect which could be of great value to Reilly, currently living in St Petersburg, and his British paymasters. 'Dreadnoughts and Doublecrosses' develops this story further. 'Gambit' sees Reilly make the journey into post-revolutionary Russia on a mission to prevent the Bolsheviks making peace with Germany. 'Endgame' has the Bolshevik secret police try to catch Reilly as he negotiates to remove Lenin from power.

'The Trust' sees Reilly take up residence in New York, where he raises money for an anti-Bolshevik organisation. 'The Last Journey' has Reilly marry his third wife, Pepita, and disappear in Russia while seeking revenge for the death of his best friend. Finally, in 'Shut Down', Pepita tries to find her husband and discovers that Stalin has had him arrested.
