What is included with this book?


Set in London shortly after World War II, this dark psychological novel is as eerily chilling as it is profound. The narrator, Richard Merton, tells the story of his close friend Tony and how he progressively falls under the influence of his new and sinister butler, Barrett. After breaking all ties to his previous life and to his friends, Tony soon appears to be completely dominated by this new, sinister character. Merton's attempts to unravel the mystery uncover a strange affair in which class and sexual barriers have completely disappeared. Ambientada en Londres poco después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, esta oscura novela psicológica es tan inquietante y escalofriante como es profunda. El narrador, Richard Merton, narra la historia de su íntimo amigo Tony y de cómo éste va cayendo progresivamente bajo la influencia de su nuevo y siniestro mayordomo, Barrett. Luego de romper todos sus vínculos con su vida anterior y con sus amistades, Tony pronto parece completamente dominado por este nuevo personaje siniestro. Los intentos de Merton de desentrañar el misterio descubren un asunto en el cual las barreras de clase y sexo se han desintegradas totalmente.
