The Man Behind The Glass: A Victorian Gothic Tale by Greg Howes
I will leave the rest of this to the synopsis on the back of the book, as I couldn't sum it up any better:
"The Man Behind The Glass is based around a character called Septimus Blackwood, a Victorian photographer with a difference. The tale is set in London's East End in the year 1860. A mysterious Gothic adventure of a man's quest to capture life and cheat death through photography. Septimus races against time to discover his family's long lost legacy buried deep amongst the forgotten rivers and cellars of old London. Unbeknown to him a mysterious old woman looks on..."
"The story, along with its highly satirical characters escort the reader on an emotional journey into a world of intrigue, suspense and the supernatural. Atmosphere seeps out of every gulley of this twisting and ever turbulent road; darkness and light, creation and calamity. Encounter magical discoveries that will pick the pocket of your dreams for now and evermore."
