Publisher's Summary

On an August night in 1986, Jennifer Levin left a Manhattan bar with Robert Chambers. The next morning, her strangled, battered body was found in Central Park. Linda Wolfe goes beyond the headlines and media hype to recreate a story of a teenager whose immigrant mother was determined to make a better life for her son, a petty thief and drug user who'd been expelled from the best schools. It's all here, from the initial police investigation, during which Chambers claimed Levin died accidentally during rough sex, to the media frenzy of the courtroom, where Chambers took an 11th-hour plea. Wasted powerfully depicts the freewheeling 1980s society that spawned a generation steeped in violence and the fatal impulses that drove Robert Chambers to kill.

    "A very thorough reporting for the time"

    I found this book to be a very well rounded report of both Jennifer Levin and Robert Chambers as well as the lifestyle and cliques that they hung with. it really is unjust the way that the case ended up. I feel like the prosecutor was in way over her head. instead of putting their top people on this crime, the city of NY gave the investigation to a detective for whom it was his first homicide. Fortunately the police were able to stumble into a confession of sorts.

    The problem was that ADA Feinstein had never tried a murder case AND she was going up against Lipman who was a former prosecutor and somewhat of a mentor to Feinstein in the past! she should have been recused for that alone or at least the DA should have had the sense to assign someone else.

    Still, the story itself was very captivating and the narration was excellent! if you are a true crime nerd like myself, then you will absolutely enjoy this book!
