From the Author
The Reading The Dead series originally began as a screenplay I wrote back in 2011, purely for fun. After moving on to short stories, I began to feel the urge to try my hand at something bigger. While going back and reading my original script, rough though it was, I found a bit of magic in the evolving relationship between the two main characters, LAPD Detective Sarah Milton and her teenage, ghostly sidekick, Anna Nigma. I realized as I read it that not only did the story work across different genres, encompassing everything from a paranormal comedy to a crime thriller, but at its heart, it was really about none of these things. The police drama, suspense, thrills, supernatural and mystic elements - they were just the icing on the cake. What drew me to my original script, and what I endeavored to pass along in this book, was the tale of two best friends, separated by years, who must find a place in their lives for one another again, after going on alone for so long. That's what this book series means to me. I hope you'll find something of equal value when you read it for yourself.

Sarah Milton is special. Oh, she wouldn’t agree that she was special – she is more inclined to believe that she is just an oddball who grew up with an invisible friend as a child. An invisible friend who disappeared when Sarah’s mother was murdered, when Sarah needed her the most. Lonely and heartbroken, Sarah disappears into her books, and her obsession over her mother’s murder.
Now grown, Sarah is a police officer in Los Angeles, assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit. Well educated and intelligent, Sarah is an up and coming star of the division, tracking and bringing down a psychopathic serial killer on her first case. Now, another killer is out there, and Sarah is right in the middle of it. But before she can truly get started, something happens that changes Sarah’s life forever.
Bosco, Sarah’s hyperactive Yorki best buddy is out of kibble, so she stops at the minimart – and walks straight into a robbery. A robbery that gains her a bullet in the chest, and a trip to the land of the dead. Brought back, the first ‘person’ she sees is Anna Nigma, her long lost invisible friend.
J.B. Cameron has written a seriously good story. This is a paranormal story, filled with ghosts and things that go bump in the night. It is exceptional as a paranormal, with solid writing and a well-written story line. But it is more than that. It is a great suspense story, with thrills, chills, and exceptional mystery and police procedure. With ghosts and invisible people leading the way, how does a detective explain how she knows what she knows? And how does she stop it when the story is more than ever expected?
This is exceptional writing for a “new” author. I will be purchasing the next books, and I have no doubt that I will greatly enjoy them.
I am acquainted with Cameron through Goodreads.com, however, I purchased the book on my own and have not received payment for the purchase in any manner. All opinions are my own.
Very creative with a dash of fun. The are engaging and well written. I was just a little uncomfortable with Sarah's treatment in the beginning but it works to allow you suspend disbelief in the ghost aspect. Let alone crafted well enough to evoke that discomfort. So even if you aren't typically a paranormal reader this is well worth reading.
