Isaac Newton - Criminal Investigator

By early 1697, only months removed from the life of a Cambridge philosopher, his network of informers, undercover agents, and street muscle had turned Isaac Newton into the most effective criminal investigator London had ever seen.

From Thomas Levenson's Newton and the Counterfeiter which  is currently being serialized on BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week program.

Thanks for the link. That book was on my shopping list. Now I'll just listen to it!

The book might still be worth reading as the radio version has probably been abridged to fit it into five 15 minute programs.
