Advance Praise for Matthew McGough's THE LAZARUS FILES
“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
“The Lazarus Files chronicles one of the most fascinating homicide cases in the history of the LAPD. Matthew 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.” —Miles Corwin, author of the national bestseller The Killing Season and Los Angeles Times bestseller Homicide Special
“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
