    One thought on “Murdered (KindleSingle)”

    1. A good condensed form of a true crime story. The lesson I learned though is not related to the story at all: The next time I think of buying a Kindle Single, I should first check out the story in the web where I could read it for free.

    2. Fast readthe story was short and to the point. I enjoyed following the case and finally seeing justice prevailed. I want to learn more about the case now!

    3. Wow. Talk about a botched case. And what a scum bag of a husband to even consider going back out with his ex and wife's stalker. I enjoyed this free read. Straight to the point.

    4. This is a very short book about the murder of Sherri Rasmussen by Police Officer Stephanie Lazarus. It was not very detailed, but very straight and to the point. It talked about the main points of the case, the trial and the evidence. It was very interesting and does make me want to know more about the case. It is short, therefore a quick read. Very informative.

    5. Well WrittenVery detailed. Although I feel the husband had a huge part in this, weather he assisted or just plain stupidity when it came to his secret affair. Anyways, it was a very interesting read.

    6. Awesome book. Riveting right from the start! This is a book anyone could immensely enjoy even if not an avid reader. Awesome book. Riveting right from the start! This is a book anyone could immensely enjoy, even if not an avid reader.

    7. Can't finish reading this I read this book to 98%and then it just stops. Another one of my ten "free" books says it's just a sample. My son got me this Kindle for Christmas, thinking it's not even worth it.

    8. good bookif you like true crime stories this is a good one. This intriguing story is about how justice was finally a family who's killer was a member of the " big blue wall". A very relevant story for today's society.

    9. Shocking cover-up in horrific murderThis book is concise, yet reasonably detailed concerning the murder of Sherri Rasmussen. While glaring evidence pointed to premeditated murder, the police department went to great lengths to cover for one of their own.

    10. Good read!Good read! I highly suggest it. It's Not super long but it is intense and easy to follow. Shows how good faith can still withstand corruption.

    11. Suspect I hate her husband, because of his lust, his wife got killed . Why polices are mostly lacks on working.

    12. That's itThat was it?! Left wanting to know moreStarted off great, then the drama stops. Enjoyed reading. Will read other books.

    13. Great ReportingIt's refreshing to read of a case solved by such good people of the LAPD. Alexander writes with clarity and precision.

    14. Short and to the point. This details a murder that took place in LA in the 1980s. It was brief, so I will be looking up more information. But, overall, an interesting true crime read.

    15. Short but interestingEngaging story of a truly shocking crime. I enjoyed reading this little book. I definitely recommend it to true crime fans.

    16. Good, short readThis story exemplifies the statement "insult to injury". There's good and bad officer's, thankfully this case was finally given to one of the good ones so this family I hope found some peace.

    17. I'd already heard the story from an episode of "Snapped" but this read gave a good amount of information I hadn't heard before. Well written, easy read.

    18. MurderedPaul AlexanderNonfictionLoc 589 (no pages)In the book Murdered Sherri Rea Russeman is brutally murdered. She is bitten in the forearm and is sot in the gut after 20 minutes of fighting she is finally hit in the head with a vase and then shot in the heart twice. Her car is stolen but that is it. It takes the police 12, 12 YEARS to find who did third horrible deed. There was saliva, fingerprints, and blood from the murderer. How did they not catch the horrible person.? I think when Sherri [...]

    19. OMGoodness! police corruption at it's finest. This is a true crime story about a love affair that ends up in death of a beautiful young woman.The author does a fine job and condensing all of the details of this case into one fabulous short. One thing I learned from reading this piece is that the BIG BLUE WALL is strong. One can only wonder how many other cover-ups there have been.May Sherrie R.I.P. knowing justice has been served.

    20. Paul Alexander has written a clear, concise, just-the-facts account of the brutal murder of Sherri Rae Rasmussen.The cold case was revived 23 years later. It was discovered that Rasmussen's father had provided a vital lead during the initial investigation, but it was never followed. The LAPD was now accused of a cover-up.The writer presented the entire case, through the jury verdict, in a few pages. I found the case interesting and plan to read more by this author.

    21. This is a story about the deliberate, brutal murder of a young woman decades ago. What's important about it is who the killer is and why the crime went unsolved and unavenged until the present day. All citizens of a free society should know this story and question whether it could happen where they live. The fact that it's a Kindle single, very short and very affordable, should make it easy for many to read and reflect on this horrific crime and the miscarriage of justice it represents.

    22. Short and BriefI chose this book quickly before a long road trip. It was just okay. The book only took about an hour to read and only went surface deep in its content. The fact based writing style and descriptions of the same events multiple times was a tad boring and repetitive. But if you're looking for short term entertainment I'd recommend this book.

    23. I actually saw this on 48hrs mystery or whatever that show is called and decided to read the short book. I love true crimeI guess that's the voyeur in me. It just amazes me sometimes as to how people truly believe they are above the laweven those that are employed to uphold the law. It is a travesty how the LAPD covered this up to protect one of their own. We are talking about murder.

    24. A quick, shallow read. This is like an episode of a crime show, and while it adequately told the story of a murder and a murder's resolution, including conviction of the killer, and I enjoyed it, I still had a some questions. I wanted to get deeper into the "why" of the whole thing, and this book basically laid out the "how" and then was over.

    25. I started this book today and finished it today; an extremely fast & interesting read. All I can say is WOW!! 23-years after Sherrie was murdered, her case is finally solved by a fantastic GOOD cop!! This guy should get major props. The events that take place, especially later in the book, is what causes you to say WOW out of disbelief.

    26. This was a sad but detailed telling of the murder of a young newly wed by her husband's former lover. I honestly couldn't believe that the case took so long to close but that is explained in the book, and I don't want to give it all away. It was a great single session audio book to listen to while I cleaned the house and I look forward to listening to more Kindle Singles.

    27. I took a littel detour from the books I was reading when I ran across a Kindle single called Murdered by Paul Alexander. It was a true crime story (which I have never read before). It read like a very long newspaper article (approx. 33 pages). I found it interesting though. It was about a murder that took 26 years to solve due to police corruption in LA. I enjoyed it.

    28. I felt totally cheated as I paid for this and it was nothing more than a long article !!It WAS interesting but I had assumed I was buying a book so that overrrode anything else for me.Amazing what a poor job the LAPD did with this case especially when the victim's father suggested the perpetrator the day following yet it took 24 years for justice to be finally served !!

    29. AndreaAndreagreat quick a sad injustice.lly put to rest after 26 long yearsI hope she is tortured with this memory till HER dying days.Bless the cold case detective who brought this family justice that was much too long time coming.
