Yeah, so I'll ruin another classic by recommending it here: Random Harvest, by James Hilton.
I don't know what it is about this book, but it's my all time favourite. I can recite the first chapter.

Off to read it for the umpteenth time...

I'm going to bite on Henchmen. Thanks!
I've just started this and it's tremendous fun. Great recommendation. I think any fan of Zenda and its ilk would like it (but you need to read Zenda first, if you haven't).

I'll bite. Big Zenda-ite (Zendorian, Zendaphile, Zendovian?), here.

This may stretch both your ideas of "hero" and "secret identity", but I much enjoyed the Scepter'd Isle series by Mercedes Lackey and Roberta Gellis. The books in the series are set during the lifetime of Queen Elizabeth I and presuppose a world of elves and such that exists alongside our own. The hero of the first book is an elf playing the role of a minor human noble while protecting members of Elizabeth's family. He's still a main character in the later novels, but "hero" becomes much more of a group effort.

The books are available from the Invasion Baen CD.

Perhaps the Gentlemen Bastards series by Scott Lynch might be of interest to you. I recommend The Lies of Locke Lamora. It's more of a secret group, but it's still an entertaining story.
