Walking into the Night : For twenty years Christian Benediktsson has led a quiet life as butler to William Randolph Hearst. His days are filled with the rituals of Hearst's life and the demands of running a grand house.

No one else knows the secret of the man he once was - husband, father, businessman, lover - but his past is now closing in upon him, and he must face it or walk away into the night . . .
