From the Author
Since the first book of the Reading The Dead series, Sarah Milton has been a depicted as a woman haunted not only by the specter sharing her apartment, but by the ghosts of her troubled past. The death of her mother had a significant impact on her development. Just as important was the presence of Harold Edgar Sands, otherwise known as "The Fancy Dress Killer," for his penchant of dressing his victims in nice outfits and photographing them, post-mortem.
From our first introduction to Sarah, we discover that she has a newspaper clipping of his arrest hanging on her wall. One surmises that it's because that was the case that cemented her career... but that's not all there is to the story.
In Reading The Dead: Fidelis In Aeternum, we discover just how deep her trauma with Harry Sands really goes, via flashbacks to her time as a beat cop involved in bringing him tojustice, a feat that almost resulted in her demise. This chapter in Sarah Milton's continuing saga is about rising above her past and sets the stage for her uncertain, but hopefully brighter, future.

Reading the first book isn't strictly necessary, though with one particular character I felt you were supposed to exclaim – oh no, not him! rather than – who is this guy?
I'd recommend reading the companion novella Reading The Dead: Anna's Adventures too.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This time, her loyalty, her friends', and more about their individual gifts is revealed.
I was honored to read an advance copy of this book from Booksprout.
In my honest opinion, it's another thrilling, action packed read.
Sarah is apparently not the only member of the LAPD with supernatural gifts. Love and death also don't seem to mix well.
If you enjoy intense cop serials with a supernatural twist, this could be your next "can't put it down" read.
The second book in this series is just as good as the first. I am impressed with Cameron's ability to construct such elaborate novels.
Sarah Milton is a detective in the Violent Crimes Unit and they have an impressive team that is dedicated to solving the heinous murders that take place in LA. Sarah is unique as she has some supernatural help in the form of a ghost, Anna.
Anna, adds mystery, wittiness and a great deal of fun to the storyline. I enjoyed her jokes, humor and her ultimate willingness to help. She cares deeply for Sarah and although they may grate the others nerves at times, they do make a great duo when it comes to solving crimes.
We see Sarah's character grow in this book and even gain more insight into her past. Her budding relationship with Ryan is intriguing and will keep you engaged.
The mystery that Cameron lays out in this novel makes you unable to put the book down. I had to read it to the end and was deeply disappointed when it did end.
This story has the right amount of suspense, action, mystery, horror and light witted humor. This is by far one of the best supernatural detective series that I have read. I love the fact that Sarah is highly intelligent and perfectly capable of solving crimes on her own. The fact that she has Anna, who is invisible and can walk through walls is just an added bonus.
I love the fact that all the characters are realistic and their interaction is so natural, it isn't forced at all. Cameron does a great job with character development and relationships between them.
I look forward to seeing more of Sarah in the future to see her career continue to progress and to see her relationships continue to develop.
Reading The Dead: Fidelis In Aeternum #2 by J.B. Cameron: From the mind that brought you the first Reading the Dead comes a continuation of an exhilarating story. This paranormal mystery picks up right where the first ends but you get to see how each character has gotten to where they are today. Working along side Sarah Milton as ghost from her past cases come back to haunt her and her loved ones. They all though the Fancy Dress Killer was locked away and that the streets were safe, boy were they wrong. When a victim shows up with eerie similarities to those that lost their lives at the hands of Harry Sands, Sarah and her team start to scramble. Who could be committing these terrible crimes? Who’s their next target? I suggest you pick up this series and find out.
I loved this book! It has the same feel and drive as the first book and you find out so much more about those you’ve already come to embrace. See where Sarah, Mason and Chelsea came from and how they got to the VCU. I have to say, I’m also happy that Marcie Yang made another appearance (at the end). She is just so funny! Oh, and I can’t adequately express how much you will hate Harry Sands and his accomplices. All in all, I’d say everything J.B.Cameron set out to convey has been accomplished. You got it all… action, adventure, chases, tons of humor, a little romance thrown in for good measure; and an excellent mystery.
