The Emmy-nominated true saga of Russian-born British spy Sidney Reilly and his exploits in the early decades of the 20th century, including his involvement in a plot to overthrow Lenin. The life and espionage activities of the agent (and ladies' man) were so dramatic that author Ian Fleming once said that his creation, James Bond, was `just a piece of nonsense I dreamed up.
