The Inquisition follows the principles of Praios and would never hide themselves or apply shadowy tactics to get results - at least not in the official canon. If you want to play them like that, go ahead.
From the core rules it seems that a covert shadowy organization of Praios blessed ones, or other agents, would have to follow the "old ways":
"In the past, Praiotes reputedly desired only to enrich
themselves and interpreted the law however they
deemed fit, brutally punishing even the pettiest crimes.
Surely, some Blessed of Praios still think like this, but
most Praiotes commit themselves to order and try to
bring justice that is pleasing unto Praios to the people."
Of course, this would in no way be supported by the official church of Praios. And that would make them a criminal organization or a cult, and not a secret service of any kind, although obviously they themselves may believe otherwise.
The difference is radical Followers of Praios will overshoot in the Principles, but never abandon them. Hiding and lying about oneself are not overzealous, but going directly against their faith and the basic principles.
