On February 24, 1986, 29-year-old newlywed Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in the home she shared with her husband, John. The crime scene suggested a ferocious struggle, and police initially assumed it was a burglary gone awry. Before her death, Sherri had confided to her parents that an ex-girlfriend of John's, a Los Angeles police officer, had threatened her. The Rasmussens urged the LAPD to investigate the ex-girlfriend, but the original detectives only pursued burglary suspects, and the case went cold. DNA analysis did not exist when Sherri was murdered. Decades later, a swab from a bite mark on Sherri's arm revealed her killer was in fact female, not male. A DNA match led to the arrest and conviction of veteran LAPD Detective Stephanie Lazarus, John's one time girlfriend. The Lazarus Files delivers the visceral experience of being inside a real-life murder mystery. McGough reconstructs the lives of Sherri, John and Stephanie; the love triangle that led to Sherri's murder; and the homicide investigation that followed. Was Stephanie protected by her fellow officers? What did the LAPD know, and when did they know it? Are there other LAPD cold cases with a police connection that remain unsolved?

Review:

"The Lazarus Files is crime writing at its finest. Matthew McGough's deep dive into one of the most controversial cases in Los Angeles history is expertly researched and recreated in exacting and haunting detail. I was riveted." --Michael Connelly

"[An] engrossing true crime account...This memorable and powerful work deserves a wide readership." --Publishers Weekly, *starred review*

"The Lazarus Files is a thorough, comprehensive, and impressive account of the murder of Sherri Rasmussen, and how LAPD detective Stephanie Lazarus got away with the crime for more than two decades. Matthew McGough has not only written a singular true crime story, but a careful and damning indictment of systemic failure, one that should reverberate for years to come." --Sarah Weinman, author of The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel That Scandalized the World

"The Lazarus Files chronicles one of the most fascinating homicide cases in the history of the LAPD. Matt McGough does a herculean job of research and reporting in order to track down the many serpentine threads in this coldest of cold cases. This is a thrilling story of justice long delayed--but justice finally served. McGough has written an impressive book." --Miles Corwin, author of the national bestseller The Killing Season and Los Angeles Times bestseller Homicide Special
