The Lazarus Heart is an original novel by Poppy Z. Brite based on the world and thematic concerns of The Crow and published in 1998 by Harper Prism. Like the majority of Brite's fiction, The Lazarus Heart is set in New Orleans.

Wrongly executed for the murder of his gay lover, Jared is resurrected by the crow to get vengeance and bring justice to the real killer. He is assisted in the mission by his lover's trans woman twin.

The story's basic plot outline is seen in the later film The Crow: Salvation, without any of the LGBT elements.
