He tells the story of Tony, a close friend from the war, who breaking links with old friends and habits steadily comes under the influence of his sinister new butler, Barrett. Concerned for his friend, Richard slowly uncovers a strange affair in which both class and sexual barriers have disintegrated into a dark flux.
