I heard a word on an audio vocabulary building program, but I have no idea how to spell it and I can't find it on google.

The word sounds like amanous griege and it refers to a behind the scenes decision maker.

Both Dick Cheney and Harry Hopkins have been refered to as an amanous griege because of their behind the scenes influence and power.


Please help me figure out how to spell this word
