Wasted

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.

The Murder of Dr. Chapman

Summary

From acclaimed true-crime journalist Linda Wolfe, a spellbinding true tale of 19th-century sex, scandal, and cold-blooded murder. In 1831, Lucretia Winslow Chapman was a wife and mother of five who had founded one of Philadelphia's first boarding schools for girls. But her comfortable life and marriage to prominent local scientist William Chapman changed forever the night Lino Espos y Mina appeared at their door, requesting lodging. It wasn't long before the Cuban con artist had entrenched himself in the Chapman home and begun an illicit affair with Lucretia. A little over a month later, William Chapman was dead from a lethal dose of poison. Lino and Lucretia were eventually arrested and charged with murder - and the double trial of the century began. Wolfe skillfully weaves court transcripts, love letters, and period recollections into an edge-of-your-seat historical thriller about the crime that rocked pre-Civil War America. With its shocking verdicts that raised troubling questions about sexism and racism, this mesmerizing true-crime tale still resonates nearly 200 years later.

Private Practices

Summary

A medical shocker. Twin gynecologists are found dead in their trash-littered Upper East Side Manhattan apartment. Who killed them? And why? Based on a true story that Linda Wolfe was the first journalist to write about, her novel explores the mystery behind the deaths of these wealthy and prominent doctors, and the dark and perverse secret that ruled their lives - one that they tried desperately to hide until the final moments of their deaths.

My Daughter, Myself

Summary

A riveting memoir about the passions and perplexities of the mother-daughter bond. In My Daughter, Myself, acclaimed journalist Linda Wolfe chronicles her 38-year-old daughter's near-fatal stroke, the arduous course of physical and mental rehabilitation that led to the young woman's remarkable recovery, and the profound ways in which that journey from morbidity to health tested and changed every member of their blended family. Heart-stopping and highly personal, Wolfe's memoir is an inspiring account of how a mother, suddenly confronted by every mother's worst nightmare, must master the unfamiliar language of hospitals and illness, discover untapped wells of resilience within both her daughter and herself, and ultimately learn to let her daughter be her guide as they embark on an altogether new chapter in their lives.
