The second volume of the Reading The Dead - The Sarah Milton Chronicles series.

A frantic phone call from the wife of her former partner plunges LAPD police detective Sarah Milton and her teenage poltergeist sidekick, Anna Nigma, into a deadly mystery involving one of their most dangerous foes, the convicted "Fancy Dress Killer," Harry Sands. The Violent Crimes Unit is in the hotseat to find the copycat serial killer responsible for a recent string of murders plaguing the city, leaving Sarah scrambling to understand the bizarre, otherworldly aspects to this latest murder spree.

Enemies from her past conspire with a new, even deadlier foe, in a thrilling adventure that threatens not only her life, but also the fate of those she holds dear, culminating in a supernatural showdown against an evil entity that ultimately tests the limits of her faith and courage.

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 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 to justice, 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. Enjoy!
