It describes the activities of the Identity Club, who prey upon the insecurities of modern man to advance and enact their theories. The narrative draws on a number of literary forms in order to bring down its prey - including a Shakespearean drama, and detective fiction at its denouement when a policeman appears to bring down the Club.
