The Secrets of the Lazarus Club

by Tony Pollard

If you are a fan of 'what if' historical novels then you will love The Lazarus Club where Brunel and other inventor/scientists like him meet philosophers, business men and Byron's grandson, in order to see just how far knowledge can be extended.
A great Gothic thriller with lots of murders and, for me, a truly surprise ending.

Extract

'You mean the Lazarus Club?'
'I do wish Brunel would not insist on using that dreadfully melodramatic title,' exclaimed Sir Benjamin. 'I'll be frank with you Phillips, Brunel, as you are well aware, is my patient. What you may not know is that he is in fact a very sick man and I fear that his increasing interest in ... shall we say rather morbid matters is doing little to aid his condition. I would therefore appreciate it if you would refrain from encouraging these unhealthy interests.'
