Reginald Baliol Brett (1852-1930), the second Lord Esher, sat in both Houses of Parliament, was a high ranking civil servant and friend and confidential adviser to three sovereigns and four prime ministers. However large he loomed in late Victorian and Edwardian political life, Esher was an enigma to his contemporaries and remains a puzzle to historians. Fraser's study sheds light on a man whose influence was regarded by many as unconstitutional and sinister.
