    A science fiction tale about an opium addicted former soldier and a mystery that could doom the whole world I have learned this past year what fear truly is and I doubt if I shall ever sleep well again knowing it This then is my story the true and honest testimony of John Hardwick pg 14 ebookJohn Hardwick suffered in Burma for Queen and country When he returns to London there's a series of mysterious bombings He is recruited for a secret society of gentlemen spies because of his fortitude If you can do those things thing you can help fight a different sort of war One fought in secret and one that we must win if the stability of Great Britain and the Empire is to endure pg 34 ebook The Lazarus Gate is a fun story full of unexpected twists and turnsI felt it dragged in the middle and was confusing at times but overall it is a different spin on the steampunk genreBecause of my job I got a laugh at this description of reporters I speak madam of the gutter press the penny a liners looking for some sensationalist expose for their illustrated rags They do not seek to portray your profession in an honest light merely to misrepresent you in order to print some scandalous claptrap in the Sunday papers pg 71 ebookScandalous claptrap Heaven forbidI liked the character of John Hardwick until the end of the book when he took a course of action that I felt didn't fit with his overall character If he was a charlatan he was deeply entrenched in his own delusion for my part I believed that whatever pain he himself was feeling it was genuine pg 125 ebookHardwick was flawed but had a true moral compassIf you chance to pick this one up let me know what you thinkRecommended for fans of sci fi and Victorian era mysteries
