Mark A. Latham.
The Lazarus Gate.
Titan. 2015

London, 1890. Captain John Hardwick, an embittered army veteran and opium addict, is released from captivity in Burma and returns home, only to be recruited by a mysterious gentlemen’s club to combat a supernatural threat to the British Empire.

This is the tale of a secret war between parallel universes, between reality and the supernatural. A war waged relentlessly by an elite group of agents, unsung heroes whose efforts can never be acknowledged, but by whose sacrifice we are all kept safe.
